We all need comforting sometimes, no two ways about it.
Sometimes things just seem impossible, unsolvable, futile.
There are many things to take solace in, not all of them positive and though food, most specifically chocolate, may not be the most constructive method around, it does a good job for a lot of people.
So if you’ve just had one of those days or you’re in a complete emotional crisis, a dish with triple chocolate in the title is almost always welcome.
These chewy triple chocolate cookies are lovely and large with big chunks of oozing, melting chocolate both white and dark, with a delicious chocolate dough encasing them.
If you’re going to have a surplus of Easter eggs and can still look chocolate in the eye after the big day, these are a great way of eating the extras, of course another option would be, send them to me!
