Easter Brunch and Triple Chocolate Cookies

triple chocolate cookiesYou know there’s something wrong when you get a plate of these Triple Chocolate Cookies in front of you and the last thing you really want to do is eat one.

That’s how things have been for me around here lately. I’ve been under the weather since a week ago Thursday. I went to the doctor on Monday, got some med’s and was on the upswing and then bam… got knocked down again last night.  I hope that things return to a normal state soon…no energy and no appetite is no fun (although I don’t mind the weight loss that is along for the ride… that can stay around as long as it likes).

Anyway, the picture above really should be of a brunch item… it should, but it isn’t. It is of Triple Chocolate Cookies and as far as I’m concerned, if you serve these at brunch, you’ll have friends coming out of the woodwork wanting invitations to your brunches from now on.

If you are looking for traditional recipes for an early morning Easter brunch, I can help with that too. I was searching around on Foodily to create an Easter Brunch Menu and came up with a few things I’d like to serve to our morning guests on Easter morning. How about:

Recipe: Triple Chocolate Cookies (from the blog Family, Friends and Food)

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour through salt in a bowl and combine. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine butter through granulated sugar using an electric mixer. Beat until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time and beat well after each one is added. Beat in vanilla.
  3. While the mixer is beating at a slow speed, gradually add the flour mixture. Beat until blended. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, add in the chips and mix well.
  4. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets covered with parchment paper. Bake for 7-11 minutes, or until puffed and the edges are set.
  5. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheets, then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight containers, with wax paper between layers of cookies.

    Oh – feel better!! Like Amy, I would welcome a “no appetite” day or two.

    Love these cookies. I have been thinking of what I want to bring into work for after lent – everyone gave up sweets and my boss have up chocolate. These look like the perfect thing!

    I’m dreaming of an Easter brunch now! Gorgeous cookies, and I hope you feel better soon. :( I don’t like seeing you feel so awful.

    The only brunch you’d find the triple chocolate chip cookies is at Easter Brunch. These are my second favorite after regular chocolate chip cookies.

    I’m sorry you’re having a tough time. Don’t you feel like there should be a ‘pause’ button in family life, where you get to take a week, month or (dare I say it…) year off from EVERYTHING and go recharge on a beach by yourself? Become you again and then come back and hit ‘play’. I’m pretty sure I lost my sense of humor about a year ago and I’d like to go find it. Would be nice, right?

    Sending you some good vibes. xo
