Triple Chocolate Truffle Cookies Recipe {Baking with Dr. Oetker}

*This is a collaborative post

Anyone that follows me on social media will know that I love to bake. I have a whole backlog of recipes I need to get around to typing up for Chocolate Dipped Cookies and so many chocolate tiffins that it will take me a while to get them all online but one baking experience I had to share was a new Triple Chocolate Truffle Cookies experiment I had with some help from Dr. Oetker.

Dr. Oetker got in touch to see if they could inspire me to get creative in the kitchen and as a starting point I had a look at their recipes online. My favourite was instantly the Chocolate Truffle Cookies but as we’d been sent a few varieties of Dr. Oetker chocolate to try I thought I’d add even more chocolate to the recipe and make Triple Chocolate Truffle Cookies. After all, you can never have enough chocolate! I also didn’t have any dark brown sugar so used light brown sugar instead – the finished cookies were, I’m sure, just as good!

I had never cooked cookies before that you dunked in icing sugar before baking. This little twist really adds something to the cookies and I’ll definitely be doing it with other cookies in the future. Dr. Oetker has so many ideas, recipes and products to help everyone bake – even people who have never baked before so if you’re looking to get into the kitchen Dr. Oetker is a really great place to start.

I have tried to take a leaf out of my friend Lucy’s book and share most of the things I bake so that I’m not eating the majority of it myself. This time I shared the Triple Chocolate Truffle Cookies with Hubby and the children as well as friends who came around for play dates – play dates are so much better when you have home baked chocolate cookies to keep you company!

  • Put the egg, brown sugar and vanilla in a bowl and mix before beating in the melted chocolate mixture. Add the flour, baking powder and chocolate chunks, mixing well. Cover and chill for 1 hour until firm.
  • When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 180C/ Gas 4). Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Sift the icing sugar into a small bowl.
  • Using an ice cream scoop or a rounded dessert spoon, take a scoop of the chocolate mixture and press the rounded side down in the icing sugar to give it a sugar crust.
  • Arrange the sugared scoops on the baking trays, leaving room to spread. Bake for 15 minutes until risen, cracked, and just firm – the centre should remain soft. Leave to cool on the trays. Delicious served warm or cold.

    These look fabulous. I am terrible at making biscuits, they always end up running everywhere and just being one big biscuit. I need to learn though because I’m attempting to avoid palm oil and can’t find any biscuits anywhere without it in. I can’t go without biscuits so I’ll have to make my own. I’ll definitely be stealing and adapting your recipe 🙂

    Wow those cookies look gorgeous – I bet they are wonderful more or less straight from the oven. I’m afraid I have to disagree – chocolate is not for sharing in my eyes! Lol!
