Recipe: Chewy Triple Chocolate Cookies

by Triple chocolate cookies cooling from the oven.

When it’s time for holiday baking, try this rich chocolate cookie — and enjoy in moderation.

 

Satisfy your sweet tooth with this triple-chocolate cookie. This recipe makes a gooey, chocolatey treat to keep the family happy when it’s time to bake (and eat) holiday cookies. Moderation still matters when enjoying holiday desserts: These cookies have 123 calories each, and they taste rich enough to satisfy a hankering for dessert after just one cookie. Try making a small batch and freezing the remaining batter for a future baking session.

The recipe — which makes 24 cookies — calls for dark and milk chocolate, plus pecans. If you’re not wild about nuts in your baked goods, skip the pecans. You can also substitute chopped white chocolate for the milk chocolate to give the cookies some bright bits to contrast with the rich, dark brown ingredients.
