Triple Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

Besides his rule of only not eating cherries unless they’re in Kool-Aid, my not-so-gourmet hubby only eats oatmeal when it’s boiled and served with milk and brown sugar. So when you see oatmeal cookies on my blog, it’s because “I” have a craving. Chewy and chock full of three types of chocolate discs make these Triple Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies unforgettable!

Triple Indulgence!

So many oatmeal cookies have ordinary semi-sweet chocolate chips added. Now, mind you, that is always a nice option. But if you’d like a trumped up version, why not add a variety of chocolate chips? Or how about chocolate chunks? And for the ultimate cookie experience, you may want to splurge on some Guittard chocolate discs/wafers. I tossed in equal portions of semi-sweet, bitter-sweet and white chocolate wafers. No bite tasted exactly the same, but they were all heavenly!Triple Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies | Perfect treat for you cookie monsters!

Cookie Tips:

A couple notes about this recipe. First of all, the sugars were added to melted butter, then that mixture needed to be chilled for about 10 minutes. Second, after forming the dough balls, they also required a 30 minute chill before being baked. That ensured better looking, puffier cookies instead of those that resemble pancakes. It was worth the time to complete these extra steps for the best, chewiest, chocolate laden oatmeal cookies that you’ve ever tasted. I also held back a few of each type of chocolate wafer to garnish the rounds of dough, offering a clue to the yumminess awaiting inside these babies. So run, don’t walk, to your kitchen to whip up a batch of these triple chocolate chunk oatmeal cookies!

      Skinny Tip

      I’m offering a series of Skinny Tips. How I keep slim is one of my most frequent inquiries. I’ll feature more tips on some of my upcoming blog posts. Click on the #SkinnyTip tag at the end of this post to see all my previous tips.

      Tip #42: You don’t have to belong to the clean plate club. Give yourself permission not to finish what’s on your plate if you’re overserved. When dining out, you can eat half your meal and have the rest boxed up to take home for a second meal. I often split an entree with a girlfriend when out for lunch with a group of friends.
