Day 70: Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Are you a lover of all things chocolate? Then this is the cookie for you!!!

Dane celebrated his birthday earlier this month and requested I make a "Cookie with layers of chocolate." He's 9. I think we may be watching too many food shows. Not many 9-year-olds would talk about the layering flavors of chocolate. Dark, Milk and Semi-Sweet all combine for a wonderfully moist and rich treat.

Tomorrow is The Cookie A Day Challenge's weekly Cookie Link up. You can link your favorite cookie recipes, pictures or post. Anything goes! Hope you will join :) The more cookies the better! Don't have a recipe to share? Come and check out the ones that are here, get inspired and link up next week.

Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies

1 stick of butter (softened)                                                 
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp burbon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt (I use Koser)
1 Hersey's Bar broke into pieces
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Sift together dry ingredients (flour, dark cocoa powder, baking soda and salt) set aside.
Cream butter and sugar.
Add egg and vanilla, mix well.
Slowly stir in dry ingredients.

Stir in Hershey's Bar pieces and chocolate chips.
Place teaspoon sized drops on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Cool on the cookie sheet for 1 minute, move to rack to cool completely.
