Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe in a cookie cook book when I was in high school. It was on sale at Barnes and Noble! In the book they are called Chocolate Fudge Brownies, but I think they are more on the cookie side then the brownie side. And if you are expecting a brownie - you will be disappointed.

Personally, I don't like these cookies very much because I'm not a big fan of chocolate. However, they are the first to go when I bring them to a party and everyone always asks for the recipe. So I'd say try them if you like chocolate!

These cookies freeze well and it is easy to make a big batch of them. You can space about 15 of the cookies per cookie sheet as they do not spread out too much on the pan.

Also see the recipe for Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie and my Mom's favorite white chocolate and macadamia nut cookies!
