Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Gooey, Crunchie, Soft and Moreish Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies that are perfect for any Cookie Lover!

Now, I have already done many a cookie recipe in my time, such as my Chocolate Oat Cookies, and my Chocolate Orange Cookies… but I realised I have never put up my main go-to recipe for cookies (that I bake almost twice a week these days!). Honestly, they’re cookie perfection and such an adaptable recipe.

These cookies are what I based the recipe for my Chocolate Orange Cookies on as this recipe is utterly delicious and so versatile that it beautifully turned into them too!

These cookies are perfect just out of the oven when warm and gooey, or when left to cool they are IDEAL with a glass of cold milk or a cuppa – basically, they go with anything at any time on any day.

You could bake them for a couple minutes longer to get a crunchier outside, but still have a gooey outside, which I often do, or even bake them for a minute less to have the gooiest and softest cookies in the world.

I realise that everyone likes there cookies done slightly differently to the next person, so these are all about the baking time.

These cookies get the crinkle effect from the types of sugars used and the amount of chocolate used! You can always put less chocolate chips in if that takes your fancy, or even have them plain, but I am an utter Chocoholic so always put in the maximum.

I often use actual chocolate chips that you can buy in the baking isle to make them super easier, but you can use chunks of a bar to get a more chocolatey pocket which is just YUM.

I’m obviously a fan of Triple Chocolate recipes as my No-Bake Triple Chocolate Cheesecake is one of my favourite recipes ever (THE LAYERS ARE AWESOME), but you can’t be a triple chocolate cookie. Like honestly, there is nothing better.

Well, I mean using these cookies are the base of the No-Bake Triple Chocolate Cheesecake would be incredible… maybe I will do that next time.

If you find that your cookies can spread or get a little weird, its often down to how the mixing is different, or the ingredients themselves. It’s why I always use the same sugars and the same ingredients because it makes me get a perfectly consistent cookie. You can however add in a tablespoon of cornflour to prevent them spreading if that is something you struggle with.

When you look at the pictures you can see just how chocolatey and delicious they are and you can understand why they usually get eaten within the hour. I have often mistakingly burnt myself trying to eat one straight out of the oven, but you know… worth it.

If you bake these for a minute longer, you can use them for a cookie sandwich and put a scoop of ice cream inside, and you end up with the most delicious dessert for a comfy night in.

I often make more than one batch in a go because they are so moreish, and luckily with a recipe like this you can just double or triple it. However, still don’t necessarily put more than 6-8 on a tray in a go. My cookies don’t spread, but as I have already said some others can so be wary!

RECIPE UPDATED AUGUST 2019 – I’ve updated this recipe to suit my newer, and more up to date style – this consisted of switching the flour from Self Raising to Plain, and increasing the amount slightly! The original is still just as tasty, however, I love the newer version too. Find the original in the notes section!

I hope you love this recipe! Enjoy! x

Type: Cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes
Servings: 16 Cookies
Author: Jane's Patisserie


  • 125 g Unsalted Butter/Stork
  • 100 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 100 g White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Medium Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 25 g Cocoa Powder
  • 225 g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 100 g White Chocolate Chips
  • 100 g Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 100 g Dark Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan/375F and line two-four baking trays with parchment paper. Mine are quite large trays (40cm) to make sure the cookies don't touch!
  • Mix together the Butter and both Sugars until light and fluffy and thoroughly combined! Using an electric mixer is far easier for this because it gets very fluffy and perfect!
  • Mix in the Vanilla and the Egg until thoroughly combined, then mix in the Cocoa Powder, Flour, Bicarbonate of Soda, Baking Powder and Salt until a thick paste/cookie dough is formed.
  • Fold in the Chocolate Chips, and spoon the mixture onto the trays and make sure they are suitable spread out so they stay separate! (I usually fit 6-8 on each tray to be safe) I also use a 5cm cookie dropper/ice cream scoop to make them identical sizes.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until spread out perfectly crinkly. A minute or so less will be gooey, a minute or two more will be beautiful Crunchy. 
  • Once baked, remove from the oven and gobble them all up - don't burn yourself on the chocolate!


  • TOP TIP - If they look a little too domed for you still when they're fresh out the oven, tap the tray's onto the work surface a couple of times and the cookies will flatten out a smidge - leave to cool fully on the tray still. 
  • They are super super gooey when warm so you could serve them with a dollop of ice cream if you like (vanilla is perfect with it) and they are an utter crowd pleaser.
  • If you wanted to just use one type of chocolate you could as well, I just always stick to the same amount weight wise!
  • These Cookie Scoops (affiliate link) are ideal for the job and have three sizes! I use the middle size for these cookies.
  • These will last for 4-5 days after baking, but honestly they will be eaten before then. 
  • The mixture can be chilled before baking, and they can also be frozen raw or baked. 
  • Recipe updated August 2019
  • Original recipe
    • Everything is the same, apart from the original used to use 175g Self Raising Flour instead of the 225g Plain. I also used slightly less chocolate chips. Method and everything else is the same!

    Hi , I am due to make this recipe however I was wondering what the butter should be like , should it be room temperature or should it be taken straight from the refrigerator ?

    Kind regards

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 13, 2020 at 9:58 pm

      If using a baking spread, use straight from the fridge, if using unsalted butter, just slightly more towards room temp so it’s easier to mix in!

    Hi Jane,
    Firstly, I LOVE your website – I don’t bother looking anywhere else for delicious recipes!

    I just wanted to say after testing, that 35g of Cocoa powder works much better than the 25g stated here. I was finding they were coming out a bit greyish but now are super chocolatey. Your NY cookies recipe also quotes 35g. You may wish to consider altering the quantity stated in the recipe.

    Many thanks


    • Jane's Patisserie
      July 7, 2020 at 4:39 pm

      This recipe has always had 25g of cocoa powder along with a lot of my other cookie recipes so I will keep it that way – but you can use whatever you prefer!

    Hi Jane, I don’t have any granulated sugar in the house. I have light soft brown sugar, demerara, light muscavoda, golden caster sugar and white caster sugar? Will any of these work in place of the granulated sugar??

  • Lou
    June 8, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    Hi Jane ,
    Regarding the flour switch out , If I do the SR flour version, do you still use the baking powder and Bicarb, since SR has its own raising agents? ( currently dont have any plain flour to hand)- Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 8, 2020 at 7:38 pm

      Hiya! Yes originally I still used the baking powder and bicarbonate (As they are small amounts) with the self raising flour! x

  • Olivia Nestor
    June 5, 2020 at 2:37 pm

    Hi!! Was just about to use caster sugar (force of habit!) but spotted it’s actually granulated sugar you use!! Phew!!
    Just interested though….What difference does it make? Thank you so much!!

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 5, 2020 at 2:56 pm

      Hey! So because of the grain size, caster sugar dissolves quicker and can then cause a cookie to spread more and/or have a different texture, compared to granulated! I prefer granulated these days for cookies by far along with light brown sugar! For this recipe, I don’t generally recommend caster x

  • Faiza
    May 11, 2020 at 5:06 pm

    These look amazing ! I’m going to make them now! Quick question- if I only want to make 8 cookies (the amount) is it okay is I just use half of all the ingredients listed?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      May 11, 2020 at 6:41 pm

      The only thing about this is you can’t half the egg – I would honestly suggest making the full batch, but freezing the leftover for later!

    I made your chocolate orange cookies today and they were delicious!! I just found this recipe which you’ve more recently updated from self raising to plain flour. would the 50g increase make a difference in flavour at all?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      May 11, 2020 at 9:12 am

      It won’t change the flavour no, it just changes the texture slightly!!

    This is my go-to for triple choc chip! I was just wondering, if you removed the cocoa powder and substituted for more flour, would this recipe work ok as a normal cookie? Thanks 🙂

    • Jane's Patisserie
      April 30, 2020 at 4:27 pm

      Hiya! I’m afraid it won’t, no. When baking cookies without cocoa powder, so a plain/vanilla cookie, they can spread a lot more. I suggest looking at my NYC cookies, but making them smaller and baking for less time! x

      Just bake from frozen – add 1-2 minutes longer onto the time! x

    When you put these on the tray with the scoop, do you flatten them out prior to baking or let them spread naturally?

    Hey Jane
    I made these cookies today. They taste delicioussss!! However mine came out flat for some reason and not as chunky as yours. Any tips? I must point out that I made a double batch so I doubled everything because I needed more cookies. Also they weren’t that crinkly either. Not sure what I did wrong? Maybe the batter wasn’t mixed properly???

    • Jane's Patisserie
      January 16, 2018 at 6:41 pm

      It’s probably the mixing as you say. It might also be down to using different ingredients for example, but I would say try it as one regular batch.

    April 1, 2017 at 10:42 pm

    hi Jane! i just wanted to know once it is baked and cooled then will the cookies be chewy or crispy because i am a fan of chewy and gooey cookies and if these are chewy then this will be my LIFE LONG recipe!!!!

    • Jane's Patisserie

      I don’t know where you’ve heard that from as I would disagree… the recipe uses self raising flour for a reason.

      April 4, 2017 at 4:27 pm

      Some recipes are definitely better with plain flour, but many of my cookies on my blog use Self Raising and they’re delicious. ?

      thank for the recipe…
      i would like to ask u, can i reduce the sugar like 50 gr granulated and 50 light brown sugar? does it affect the cookie? or maybe there are alternative ways like change other ingredients grams to make the cookie still same like yours?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 27, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    • Jane's Patisserie
      October 13, 2015 at 6:04 pm

      Definitely in portion sizes, whole would be nightmare in comparison! I always freeze mine so I can have cookies when I want them, just an extra couple of minutes in the oven!

    Hello Jane, thanks very much for this recipe. I just baked a batch and my family loved them! I was hoping to find a chocolate chip cookies recipe (without cocoa powder) and tried to click on your “Double Chocolate Chip Cookies” above to see if it’s what I’m looking for, but the link was broken.

    • Jane's Patisserie
      August 14, 2015 at 3:05 pm

      I’m glad they went down well! I’ll look into the broken link for you, but those contain cocoa powder too – I’d recommend my milk chocolate & sea salt cookies 🙂

    • pass3rby
      August 15, 2015 at 3:14 pm

      Hi Jane, thanks for your super quick response! I had a look at your recipe for milk chocolate & sea salt cookies. Not sure if you can help me with this.

      Does that yield the same outcome in terms of texture as this triple choc chip cookies? There seem to be higher content of brown sugar, additional egg yolk, and no baking powder.

      Back to this triple choc chip cookies recipe – on your wildest guess, do you think I could safely reduce amount of both sugars and still get the same results? I.e. 70g brown sugar + 70g caster sugar 🙂

      Thanks and sorry for my length message. Have a great weekend!

    • Jane's Patisserie
      August 15, 2015 at 5:16 pm

      No texture is slightly different – still delicious though! And I’m not sure it would, I don’t think they’d crinkle or have the same texture if there was less sugar haha!

    These look perfect! You can’t beat a triple chocolate cookie can you! The more chocolate the better 🙂

      Hi Jane, I just wanted to say these cookies are the best cookies I’ve ever eaten, bought and made. I Love this recipe it’s so easy to make. I can’t find the original recipe with self raising flour, I’ve been using plain but can’t get any in the shops atm and really need to make a batch so thought I’d try with self raising. How much do I need to use?

      Ahh yay!! ❤️ The original ingredients are in the notes of the recipe card! Whenever I update a recipe I always keep the original in there so it stays with the recipe!
