Triple Chocolate Dipped Cookies: Chocolate Dipped Heaven

This recipe for triple chocolate dipped cookies comes from my childhood. Or teenhood, as the case may be. I’ve included affiliate links so you can easily shop for what you need to make them, which earnsme a commission when you use them.

Enjoy yin yang dipped cookies

I had a fantastic first job in high school during the school year. My friend Erica Thorpe (Hi, Erica!) got a job working at Mrs. Field’s, so of course I wanted a job there, too.

I got all fancy with a real printed resume that I typed up on a typewriter and brought to my interview, along with my carefully completed application.

Thankfully, the manager hired me, and I worked there throughout my senior year of high school, as well as that summer and again over winter break my freshman year. Back then, cookies had a shelf life measured in hours (they may still, but I haven’t worked there in *cough* years).

At the end of the day, all unsold cookies had to be tossed. Brownies, interestingly, got to stick around for a total of three days.

We weighed all product we couldn’t sell and tracked it by type. I assume this was a cost control measure and accountability feature. While we were supposed to throw them away, our manager let us take them home for personal consumption if we wanted.

Yes, I volunteered to work every closing shift I could, why?

Generally, I took only a couple of my favorites and shared them with my family. The smell of sugar and chocolate and the baking all day long did wonders for suppressing any urge I had to stuff my face with cookies.

But that winter break I worked? Let’s just say I came back as the hero in my dorm.

I had almost an entire garbage bag filled with various Mrs. Fields cookies – they lasted less than a day. I happily shared them, except for my personal favorites. I remember tucking away five of one particular cookie.

Here’s my problem. I don’t know the name of that cookie. I can’t find any mention of it on Google or in searching images. Sadly, I doubt I can find this cookie at Mrs. Fields anymore.

Good news? I know how to bake, so this year, I decided to create my own version of this triple chocolate dipped cookie. It turned out so well, and I can’t wait to share this with friends at my annual cookie swap!

I remember this as an incredibly soft and slightly chewy chocolate cookie. It was huge – then again, all Mrs. Fields cookies are, right? – then half dipped into white chocolate.

This is one of the few times you’ll see me using white chocolate. I fully admit it: I’m a chocolate snob.

But the white chocolate makes the most perfect complement to the rich, fudgy chocolate taste of the rest of the triple chocolate dipped cookies.

These chocolate drenched cookies take a little time to make, but they are absolutely worth every second.

How to Make Triple Chocolate Dipped Cookies

Chop dark chocolate and melt gently in a small, heavy saucepan, then remove from the heat.

In a mixing bowl, beat together softened butter and the sugars. Drizzle in the melted chocolate and espresso. Beat again.

Scrape down the sides, add the egg and beat to combine.

Add baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder and mix together on low. Once incorporated, add the flour. Stir until just mixed.

Use a muffin size scoop to create cookie balls. Place them on a silpat lined cookie sheet, then cover with plastic wrap.

Refrigerate at least two hours or overnight. Feel free to put all twelve cookies on one sheet at this point.

When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Separate cookie balls onto two silpat lined sheets, six cookies to a sheet. They will spread!

Bake 12-14 minutes, just until the tops look set. Remove from the oven and let cool thoroughly.

Once cooled, melt white chocolate. Carefully dip each cookie into the white chocolate. Coat half the cookie with white chocolate, using a spatula to help spread the chocolate higher on the cookie if needed.

Return to the silpat and let harden completely. Store in a tightly sealed container on your counter up to two to three days.

Notes

  • Enjoy these cookies without the white chocolate dip if you choose. They taste great without the extra flavor and presentation, as well.
  • You can also make these smaller using a regular cookie scoop if you choose. Reduce the baking time by 1-2 minutes if you do so.

    In recipe the list of ingrediencies says baking soda in the directions it says baking powder, which is it.

    • Michelle says:

      It is baking soda – I’m not sure how I typed that wrong twice. I have updated the recipe to make it clear – thank you for letting me know!

  2. stephen says:

    I grew up in Denver and I would go to the mall with my sister and buy as many of these as I could from Mrs Fields. They are called Hand Dipped Chewy Fudge!

    • Michelle says:

      Thank you! I worked there in high school – you would think I would remember the name of them. They were sooooo good. I’m bummed they don’t sell them anymore.

  3. […] Last year, I made a delicious no bake “reindeer poop” cookies and the year before, I made triple chocolate dipped cookies. […]

  4. Well, what do you know!!! I worked at Midwest Biscuit Company (cookie and cracker factory) from the age of 15 to the age of 20. This was a summer job and the reason I got to work there was that my mamma did. Did you reek of sugar and vanilla? I did. I didn’t even want to eat a cookie. Now it’s a different story. Your cookies look delicious.

    • Michelle says:

      I didn’t reek of the sugar and vanilla since it was a much smaller operation, but I certainly smelled it which kept my desire for anything sweet away! But now? I’m not happy that everyone devoured these cookies and left none for me. I got less than half a cookie!

  5. Yes Mrs. Fields makes great cookies. Homemade is always better…and these sound delicious. I would love to have one (or two) with my afternoon latte. These would be great on the holiday cookie tray.

  6. Oh I remember those Mrs Fields Cookies. I had for a long long time a cookie jar that I used for years!! Loved those cookies.
    My mom also baked lots of cookies for sale and she never sold the cookies the next day! Back then I guess that was the deal with cookies. Now a days I know they sell them for days lol

    • Michelle says:

      They had great cookies – and for all I know, they still sell only cookies that day (and actually it may have been a 6 hour max? The details escape me now) – I haven’t worked there in forever. But their cookies… oh so good!

  7. Jolina says:

    I love Mrs Fields. I remember my first boss had a Mrs Fields cookie cookbook! Years later I look for that cookbook in EVERY bookshop I go to and I’ve had no luck. I even tried Ebay! So I’m so glad to have stumbled upon this. I cannot wait to try it this Christmas 🙂

  8. Oh my gosh I remember a long, long, long time ago I bought a Mrs. Fields cookie at the end of the day and the guy there gave me about 20 cookies because he said they were just going to throw them away. That was one of the best days of life! haha…..seriously it was up there in my top 10. These look delicious and you’ve inspired me to go make cookies tomorrow!

  9. Lizz says:

    I would like to shove all of these in my face, please and thank you.
