Food: Tanya Burr's Triple Chocolate Cookie Recipe

Over the past few months I've loved getting in the kitchen and baking. This is one of the recipes I tried and oh my, these cookies are incredible. If you like gooey cookies with a tonne of melty chocolate oozing out of them then these are the ones for you. The recipe comes from Tanya Burr and her book, Tanya Bakes, which you can find here*. 

So here's how you make them...


  • 200g butter
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 275g self-raising flour
  • 75g cocoa powder
  • 100g white chocolate
  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 100g dark chocolate


1) Pre-heat your oven to 200°C/180°C fan and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper - you may need two baking trays.

2) Cream together your butter and sugar until combined.

3) Add your egg and give it a mix before adding the flour and cocoa powder. I added the flour in smaller amounts so I didn't get it everywhere! If the mixture is looking a bit dry you want to add a splash of milk.

4) Break the chocolate bars into chunks of whatever size you like - I like big chunks. Add them to your cookie dough and mix it up.

5) Roll the cookie dough into evenly sized balls and place onto the baking try - you want them to be the same size as the palm of your hand so pretty big.

6) Put them into the oven for 11 minutes exactly. When you take them out they won't feel at all ready but trust me, this is key for a truly gooey cookie. Leave them to cool for around 40 minutes and they will harden up and you can then enjoy with a cup of tea. Enjoy!

Extra notes

  • If your mixture is a bit dry and you add a splash of milk, don't add too much. I did and although it didn't affect what they tasted like, it made rolling them into balls a lot more messy as the mixture was more wet.
  • I like to half the mixture and put half in the fridge or freezer, ready for another day. I love having cookies fresh from the oven. 
  • You can choose whatever type of chocolate you want for these cookies - I know some people use chocolate orange pieces or bits of crunchie. I like milk and white the best.
