Belated Foodie Friday – Triple dark chocolate cookies

Why stop at double dark chocolate cookies when you can have triple dark chocolate cookies instead? Don’t get me wrong, the double dark chocolate cookies I posted last fall are amazing (and I’ve even used them as a base for some other cookies), but when the opportunity arose to add even more types of chocolate to a cookie I couldn’t pass it up. As you can tell from the above photo, I made these cookies around Halloween last year (see the ghost, pumpkin, and bat sprinkles?) so I’ve been dragging my feet posting the recipe. I just have many good ones to share! But back to the story at hand. Sometime last year I picked up a box of Hershey’s Special Dark instant pudding mix at Walmart one day with no real use in mind, but then fate intervened and I found this recipe for triple dark chocolate cookies. And they are delicious! The pudding mix makes these cookies soft and give them a rich chocolate flavor. If you like dark chocolate this is definitely the way to go.

1 c (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 c sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 c Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder
1 box (3.75 oz) Hershey’s Special Dark instant pudding mix
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 c Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate chips (I think I used Ghiradelli’s instead)

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and both sugars. You can use an electric mixer, but I usually just use a wooden spoon. Add the egg and vanilla and beat/stir until combined. Add the baking soda, cocoa powder, and pudding mix and beat/stir until combined. Add the flour and beat/stir until almost combined. Fold in the chocolate chips which should help incorporate the rest of the flour. Spread the dough into a 13×9″ pan lined with aluminum foil and coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 deg F for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing. Enjoy!

  1. Wait, they have Special Dark pudding now?!? What planet have I been on? I need an excuse to try these! With that amount of serious chocolate, I may be the only person in my house who eats them (my littlest girls love chocolate so far, but Danny and Elizabeth don’t); I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. :)

  2. Meghan, I found the Special Dark pudding at Walmart one day and put it in my basket in 0.1 sec flat. I’ve never actually made the pudding, but the mix works great in cookies!

    And if I didn’t like chocolate I would definitely weigh less!
