Because y’all know that I am wordy and I use way too many descriptive, flowery words in my writing, particularly when I am waxing poetic about my favorite things. And chocolate is most certainly on my list of favorite things.

The outside of the cookie bakes up like a delicate veneer while the inside becomes an explosion of intense chocolate…almost like the cookie version of a molten chocolate cake, but without oozing all over your plate. And then, as if all of that chocolate goodness wasn’t enough, there are semi-sweet and white chocolate chips peppered throughout, lending an additional layer of flavor and texture.

Triple Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Yield: Appoximately 3 dozen cookies

Triple Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Chocoholics rejoice! These rich, intensely chocolatey cookies boast gooey, fudge-like interiors studded with two types of chocolate chips.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (or chocolate chips)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee or espresso powder
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Melt chocolate chips in a glass bowl in the microwave, stirring after the first minute and then every 30 seconds after that until smooth and melted. (Alternatively, you may melt chocolate in a double boiler/heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water.) Set aside to cool.
  3. In a small bowl, beat eggs with vanilla. Sprinkle coffee or espresso powder over the top and let sit until dissolved/absorbed by eggs. Mix in.
  4. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat butter until smooth and blend in both sugars until well mixed. With mixer on low, stir in egg mixture. Blend in melted chocolate until well incorporated, scraping bowl and mixing again before proceeding. Slowly stir in dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes to allow consistency of the cookie dough to become fudge-like.
  5. Preheat oven to 350Β°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. For each cookie, scoop approximately 3 tablespoons of dough into a mound (I use a size 20 cookie scoop and level off the dough). Space mounds of dough 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until edges of cookies are just set and centers are still soft. Allow cookies to cool on pans for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Notes

Dutch-processed cocoa powder gives these cookies a darker color and a deeper chocolate flavor than regular cocoa powder would.

The instant coffee or espresso powder in these cookies don't make them taste like coffee. They just enhance the flavor of the chocolate even more.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Yes, they are just slightly dangerous. It helps if you can hide them from yourself! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the comment…hope you enjoy these if you try them!

  3. These look heavenly! I have almost all the ingredients if it weren’t for the cold (15 degrees) I would be tempted to go to the store lol.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Ha, Kristin…I think I’d attempt making cookies out of a can of beans before I’d brave 15Β° in order to buy missing ingredients! πŸ˜‰ Hope it warms up soon so you can head to the store!

  4. Holy Chocolately goodness! All I can say is, these cookie are going to make me very very happy when I make them. Love the addition of espresso! πŸ™‚

    P.S. What i love about you are those poetic descriptors. Trying to learn from that, you do a great job of it! πŸ™‚

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      You are too sweet, Krista. I often feel like I ramble on a bit too much in my posts…but it’s the way I’ve always written, so I have to be true to me. πŸ˜‰ And YES! If you are a fan of chocolate (and who isn’t?), you will love these babies!

  5. OMG I’m so pinning and making these!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!!

    XOXO
    Cami @ TitiCrafty.com

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Thanks so much, Camila! I hope you love them! I appreciate the comment and the pin. πŸ™‚ Have a great day!

  6. These look sinfully delicious! I am going to keep this recipe handy for one of those days when I am craving some chocolate:) These would make a great gift too:)

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Thanks, Shannon! You are so right about them making a great gift. I would just have to give them away very quickly before I had a chance to eat them all myself! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Um, Shannon, I cannot even begin to wrap my mind around this gorgeous cookie–I think it would satisfy even the most hardcore chocoholic like myself πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to try them out!

  8. *And by Shannon I meant Samantha πŸ™‚ Early morning brain freeze!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Ha ha, Amy…no worries! I answer to any long name that starts with an ‘S.’ πŸ˜‰ I’m so glad you stopped by…hope your inner chocoholic enjoys these cookies!

  9. These look amazing! Question for you though. We are not coffee drinkers. How important is the instant coffee or espresso powder in this recipe? Thanks again for your amazing posts!!

  10. Haha I just reread your post and the notes at the end about the coffee. You have already answered my question. Thanks again LOVE your site!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Glad you figured it out, Kirston! I don’t notice the flavor of coffee in these cookies…it just serves to deepen the flavor of the chocolate. I suppose if someone was really sensitive to coffee/hated it, they might be able to pick up on the flavor, but it’s not overt and I think most people don’t even know that it’s there. Hope you enjoy these! Happy Friday!

  11. Oh my goodness! I cannot wait to make these this weekend! Hubby is also excited to try these! Thank you πŸ˜€

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      You are so welcome, Heather…I hope that your family loves them! They didn’t last long around here… πŸ˜‰ Have a great weekend!

  12. Wow! Triple chocolate grabbed me then fudge wow. These look so soft and gooey I gotta try them. Only thing I’d change it the white chocolate…I’m a firm believer that white chocolate isn’t chocolate (just my personal oppinion) but I’d sub dark chocolate instead.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Hi Joybee! I totally agree with you. White chocolate is not technically chocolate…but I still think it all tastes good together. Ha! πŸ™‚ But yes, certainly feel free to substitute your favorite type of chocolate in this recipe. I think these cookies are yummy using everything from milk chocolate chips to M&Ms! Thanks so much for stopping by…hope you enjoy these when you try them!

  13. Yum, I need to make these!! Thanks for sharing at The Weekend Retreat, hope to see you back on Thursday!

  19. Wanted to drop by and tell you I made these yummers last night. They are so good! Mine didn’t look anything near as pretty as yours (I can’t make pretty food hehe), but they sure tasted delicious!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I’m so glad to hear that they were a hit, Heather! And who cares what they look like…all that matters is the taste! But I must confess that not everything I cook or bake turns out pretty either…I just have to make extra effort when I know I’m going to be taking pictures of it later. πŸ˜‰

  20. oh dear heaven these look divine!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Ha ha, Tash…they are pretty tasty! πŸ˜‰ Hope you get to try them soon. Thanks for stopping by!

  21. I made these last night on a whim. I am so glad I found your recipe! So easy and the cookies themselves were de-li-cious! They tasted like a really fudgey brownie and the texture was soft and smooth with a tiny bit of chew.

    I made these with my two-year old daughter(she helped mix the batter πŸ™‚ ) and I halved the recipe (so as to not be tempted to eat the whole thing at one go). We made two batches for us to share with the Daddy and we still had enough to freeze for later! I subbed chunks of caramel fudge for the white chic chips. It made the cookies a little sticky but it tasted divine!! Thank you, Samantha πŸ™‚

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      You’re welcome, Nadia…I’m so glad y’all enjoyed these! (I happen to love them, too…) πŸ˜‰ It sounds like this was a fun project for you and your daughter. I will have to try the caramel fudge substitutions next time…wow! Thanks for the suggestion! I appreciate you coming back to comment and I hope y’all have a great weekend!

  22. Hello! Just found this recipe today. I was wondering if these cookies spread a lot. I wanted to try molding them hehe πŸ™‚

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Hi DeanRae! These cookies do spread, probably comparable to an average chocolate chip cookie. You could probably chill the dough to minimize spreading, but I’m not sure how amenable it would be to molding? Good luck if you decide to try it, and I hope you enjoy these either way! πŸ™‚

  23. Hello,
    Lovely pictures! Would it make a difference if I skip the white and semi sweet chocolate chips addition to the dough.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Hi Neelima! These cookies should still turn out great even if you decide to leave out some/all of the chocolate chips. πŸ™‚
