Triple Chocolate Cookies

Total Time:
2 hr 35 min
20 min
2 hr
15 min

24 cookies


Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cloves together in a medium bowl. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove pan from the heat, add the bittersweet chocolate, then set aside until melted.

Whisk the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla together in a medium bowl, then slowly whisk in chocolate. Stir in the flour mixture to make a loose dough. Don't overwork the dough. Fold in the chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (or 325 if convection option is available).

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form dough into balls, about 2 inches or 1 1/2 ounces each, and put on the prepared baking sheets, leaving a couple inches between the cookies. Bake until outside is crackly, but the center is still moist, about 13 to 15 minutes, or 12 in convection. Cool on a rack.

Very tasty cookies. The nutmeg is a great addition, it makes these cookies a little bit different than all the other triple chocolate cookie recipes out there. Be very careful when baking because if you make it the full 15 minutes you may burn the cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
kudos to food network kitchens for this recipe. tried it out today for a party im going to tomm. they are the moist and fudgy and chocolatey, more so then some of the more complicated recipes i have made. They are kid and adult friendly, they travel well of course, and they are so rich that you dont have to make that many because 1-2 and a glass of milk is all you need. So good! would recommend!!! p.s. i DID add the cloves and i didnt find them overpowering at all. I think some people might be overmeasuring or something. I think the cloves are really needed because it gives you that little hint of something special in the cookie. I cant imagine it tasting so unique and perfect without it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The cloves seemed to overpower the chocolate taste. I will try making them again without the cloves. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made these last weekend and they were perfection! The ground cloves really push these into the "Christmas" category, the flavor brings you into the gingerbread arena in a spectacular way. The instructions were were easy to follow however I would suggest that FN change the recipe name to Triple Chocolate "Christmasy" cookies! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicous. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best chocolate cookies ever! I left the cloves out b/c I did not know if my kids would like the cookies with the flavor of cloves. They were incredible! I accidentally baked a sheet without refrigerating them first and when I realized it I refrigerated the rest and then baked them and I have to say there was not any difference... I would like to make them with the cloves since I love cloves. Maybe next time. You should know however that the do not look like the picture. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo GooooooooooooooooooooooD!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are my favorite chocolate cookies. I have been making them for a couple of years now, usually around the holidays or just whenever I'm in the mood! They are always a huge hit with the family and end up getting eaten pretty quickly. I've never put the cloves in them, because I don't like cloves. I also make the dough part with semi-sweet chocolate chips and then put milk chocolate and white chocolate chips in them. Makes them super rich, but oh so delicious! Also, I refuse to use anything other than Ghiradelli chocolate when I make it. I think that using really good chocolate makes a big difference, since all you taste in this recipe is chocolate.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMGosh ~ these are soooo gooood!! i left the cloves in - love it! i made these for a cookie exchange party i'm going to this week and THANK GOD i doubled the batch, so i might actually have some left to take to the party - they are that good! definitely going to be a yearly favorite! t item not reviewed by moderator and published
OK, I made these with cloves the first time.....AWFUL!!! Because if you don't like cloves, you won't like them in anything. Next time I added 1 Teaspoon instant coffee powder instead of the cloves. It made the chocolate taste very rich without tasting the coffee. Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa does that all the time and it's delicious. I also used walnuts instead of the white chocolate. These are seriously good chocolate ookies! I will definitely make these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
