Celebrating my 100th post with... Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Almost 5 months into my blog, I've finally reached post #100! That seems like an auspicious milestone - and certainly something to celebrate. (OK - I really just wanted chocolate, but it seemed like a good rationalization...)

These cookies are based on a chocolate chip cookie recipe, but have cocoa added into the dough and both semi-sweet and white chocolate chips stirred in. I made them "bakery style," so they're nice and big. Absolutely delish!

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Makes 18 large cookies or about 3 dozen smaller cookies)

3/4 c. butter, melted
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
1 3/4 c. flour
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and white sugar together until creamy. Beat in the egg and egg yolk until well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt together.
Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture until well mixed.
Stir in both kinds of chocolate chips.
Using an ice cream scoop or 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop large balls of dough onto cookie sheets at least 3" apart.
Bake for 15-17 minutes until the edges darken slightly (the middles may look a little undone, but they'll finish cooking on the pan). Cool 5-10 minutes before removing from cookie sheets.

Yep - I'd call that a good rationalization!
