Triple Chocolate Milky Way Cookies


Triple Chocolate Milky Way Cookies: These death by triple chocolate cookies are a chocolate lover’s paradise.

If that isn’t indulgent enough, there are milky way candy bar pieces studded throughout! Chocolate lovers unite.

I didn’t intend on making these. I have a list as long as Santa’s that’s jam-packed with recipe scribbles and margin edits that are illegible, which, let’s be real, complicates things so much further. But, instead of trying to decipher my many notepads and post-its, I had a serious chocolate moment.

Like Dove-my-moment-commercial status that only fudgy brownies, chocolate cake, and intensely triple chocolate milky way cookies could satisfy.

While a normal person might be satisfied with a milky way bar from the leftover Halloween candy, a sugar junkie like myself had to put it into a cookie.

There really wasn’t any other option.

Because calories don’t count on the weekend.

It’s a thing. I promise.

Weekends are meant for full-fat peppermint mochas, waffles with pumpkin whipped cream, apple pie, and buttery, cinnamony snickerdoodles.

And these chocolate on chocolate on chocolate cookies.

Damage control comes later. Why else do Mondays exist?

However, instead of using dry cocoa powder, I added a bit of vegetable oil to the cocoa powder in order to give it a melted quality. In fact, cocoa powder and vegetable oil can be substituted for melted chocolate, and vice versa.

Personally, I feel like dry cocoa powder can actually make your cookies dry and crumbly. Mixing it with vegetable oil allows you to use that intensely chocolatey flavor of unsweetened cocoa powder while keeping your cookies perfectly rich and chewy. It’s fabulous.

I actually use espresso powder in my classic chocolate chip cookie recipes (and in any recipe I can), because espresso powder brings out the flavor of chocolate without adding in any coffee flavor.

Add in a mixture of semi-sweet, white, and milk chocolate chips and a bunch of chopped milky ways, and you have got yourself one of the best, chocolatiest cookies. Ever. In your life.

Milk might be a necessity here.
