Triple Chocolate Cookies

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset Since moving back north I've been craving the fruits of my regular trips to Ben's Cookies (one of the things that I really do miss about the south), and so I recently sought to create a dupe of my favourite Ben's Cookies offering - the triple chocolate cookie. Any recipe prefixed by 'triple chocolate' is auto-calling my name, and Ben's makes the best triple chocolate cookies you will ever eat. They're not cheap but if you're ever in Oxford/London/Brighton, pay a visit, you won't regret it. For those of you who don't have the luxury of a Ben's Cookies kiosk to hand, I present to you the closest dupe I've found so far. Not quite spot on, they're less doughy, and a bit richer but pretty darn close. These cookies are deliciously soft and chewy but crispy on the outside, best served warm and accompanied by a glass of cold milk.


  • 200g plain chocolate
  • 50g butter
  • 397g condensed milk
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 65g milk chocolate buttons
  • 65g white chocolate buttons
  • 65g dark chocolate buttons

Makes approx. 25 cookies.

  1. Line three baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  2. Break up the chocolate and melt gently with the butter in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir in the condensed milk then remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  4. Mixi in the flour and about two-thirds of the chocolate buttons, then chill the mixture until cool enough to handle.
  5. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/Fan 160C.
  6. Place tablespoons of the mixture spaced well apart on the prepared baking trays.
  7. Use the remaining chocolate buttons to decorate the tops of the cookies.
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes - don't overcook as they will be very hard!

I hope you enjoy making this recipe as much as I have - it's so easy to make, and the ingredients list is relatively simple - no eggs!
