Triple Chocolate Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Cookies filled with Chocolate Chips and Cocoa Nibs. The ultimate chocolate experience!

Triple Chocolate Cookies with Cocoa Nibs. Chewy, fudgy and perfect for your next chocolate craving!

Before I start talking about cookies, I wanted to take a quick minute to share something a little “personal” here on the blog. I never know how much you all care to hear, but I also know many of you who read my blog know me and my family in real life too!

My dad has been on the lung transplant list for 20 months now and last week he finally had his surgery! With a quick middle of the night drive to Chicago, I was able to be there when he got out of surgery. He is doing as good as can be expected, if not better! He is a trooper, a fighter, and now a survivor! If I’ve seemed a bit “absent” on the blog lately, in responding to comments and email, please know it’s not intentional. With anything, it’s moments like these that remind us how blessed we are and what’s important! Thanks everyone for your prayers and your patience! And, thank you to all my fellow blogging friends for helping out in so many behind the scenes ways (you know who you are)!

So, with that, can we talk about cookies for a minute? Triple chocolate cookies? Seriously, when crisis hits I am one of those people who loves comfort food. And what’s better than chocolate cookies while sitting in a hospital waiting room?

Triple Chocolate Cookies with Cocoa Nibs. Chewy, fudgy and perfect for your next chocolate craving!

These cookies are not only chewy and chocolaty, but they also have a little crunch thanks to the TCHO Cacoa Nibs! My kids had mixed reviews on the crunchy part, but I absolutely loved the Nibs! Then again, I love nuts in my cookies, so the crunch of a roasted Cocoa Nib was delightful.

If you don’t have any Nibs on hand, throw in some extra chocolate chips (or nuts). You can’t go wrong!

Thanks to TCHO for giving me the opportunity to try out their Cocoa Powder as well. I love using organic products when possible, but sometimes when it comes to baking products and especially chocolate I never get the texture or results I desire. NO PROBLEMS with TCHO! The cookies turned out chewy and moist, just how I would have expected.

Enjoy the cookies, and thank you again for all the love and support! My dad is an awesome person, I wish you could all meet him!

Anything titled “triple chocolate” is an automatic winner in my book. I also happen to have a bunch of cacao nibs that I need to use up in my pantry, so I might be making these soon!
