My husband wont believe this when he sees it. I picked the most decadent cookie recipe I could find without his input! 😉 Yesterday, I cleaned up my pantries – big time! So, now it’s all pretty and organized; and I made sure that he got a peek before it became a mess again. He noticed that I had lots of chocolate chips that needed to be used up…so today I gave in to the peer pressure! It didn’t help that Publix had a decent sale on ice cream, either 😉 Milk and cookies is great, but cookies and ice cream? Forget about it!
This is obviously a great idea for a party or an excuse to have the neighbors over to help you eat it. We enjoy having friends over and food is always involved. I love that I’m comfortable with it, because years ago I had anxiety over the very idea of “entertaining” guests. I felt a lot of pressure while cleaning, and cooking – I wanted to impress everyone. I’m over that now, thankfully and I have become much more confident in my cooking and baking. I know it’s good, my family agrees and all my friends do – all those people wouldn’t lie to me 😉
This was so good, and anytime I showed someone the picture on my phone – they swoon! 😉 It was perfect with the vanilla ice cream on top and if you’re feeling extra dangerous, you can add our favorite homemade hot fudge sauce over top! Thanks for reading, enjoy!
Triple Chocolate Cookie Cake – adapted from Food Network
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
Special equipment – 12 to 14 inch round baking dish
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Add the eggs, beating well after the addition of each.
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix with a whisk. Add to the butter mixture, mixing to incorporate, and add the vanilla extract. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spread across the bottom of the prepared pan and bake until the edges are golden and the cookie is set but the center is still slightly soft, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
