What’s better than chocolate?
Chocolate delivered three ways in one Whole Wheat Triple Chocolate Cookie.
A soft whole wheat chocolate cookie wrapped around white chocolate and bittersweet chocolate chips is milk’s new best friend. A hint of instant coffee—the secret in great chocolate desserts—does wonders for chocolate cookies, deepening flavor and adding complexity.
Make a batch to take to parties, picnics, or backyard barbecues this weekend, they’ll be glad you did.

- Heat oven to 375°F.
