When Dominos got in touch with me and asked if I dared take part in their challenge, how could I resist? The challenge wasn't about the pizza it was all about the cookies. In particular Domino's Triple Chocolate Cookies. They are a limited edition and Dominos are feeling mighty proud of themselves.
If I do say so myself, I make pretty good chocolate cookies so I was feeling very confident. Cooper was busy playing with his toys, so I sneakily got on with making my cookies without him. It was quite funny, Graham walked into the kitchen and said "Oh, you will be in trouble if Cooper catches you baking without him!". He was right too, I would get a right telling off. I know Cooper is only two, but boy can he shake his finger at you and make you feel bad. So I carried on baking, nervously looking over my shoulder occasionally.

Now, I have to be honest and say I laughed when I opened the cookie box. Dominos cookies didn't look like anything I would want to eat. They looked quite pitiful. I have to say I was expecting something pretty special and they didn't look it.

My final thoughts are; if you have time, make your own and if not, then order these and remember they taste better than they look, so don't be disappointed when you open the box.
Triple Chocolate Cookies
Crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. The ultimate cookie filled with white, milk and dark chocolate chips.
- 325g plain flour
- 65g cocoa powder
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- a pinch of salt
- 225g butter, softened
- 200g caster sugar
- 100g muscovado sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 100g white chocolate chips
- 50g dark chocolate chips
- 50g milk chocolate chips,, plus a few to decorate the top of each cookie with
1. Preheat the oven to 190c/170c fan/375f/gas mark 5. 2. Mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cocoa powder3. In a large bowl beat the butter with the sugar until soft and creamy. I used an electric whisk, but if you are feeling energetic you could use a wooden spoon. Next add the vanilla, then the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each addition.4. Spoon in some of the flour and fold in. Keep doing this until all of the flour has been added, then fold in the chocolate chips. 5. Pop the cookie dough in the fridge for 10 minutes and line a tray with greaseproof paper. 6. Roll balls of dough, about the size of a golf ball and pop on your tray, leaving plenty of room between them. Press down a little and stud with chocolate chips. You will have to bake the cookies in several batches. 7. Bake for 8-10 minutes. You will know when they are ready as large cracks will appear. The will still be quite soft, but will crisp up as they cool and remain soft in the centre.
Yield: 24 Cookies
