Christmas Baking (Part Three of Three): Trois Tentations

Trois tentations - three temptations en Francais - are what make this particular spin on my chocolate chunk cookie recipe so devilishly decadent. Instead of the usual "100 grams dark + 100 grams milk choc" formula, this recipe has 100 grams of plain dark chocolate, a 50-gram Meiji Milk Chocolate bar, and 100 grams of Toblerone Dark. Sounds dangerous, doesn't it? ;)

Try them for yourself or give them as gifts to your friends - that is, of course, if you don't start getting selfish!

Trois Tentations

  • 1 - 1/2 sticks salted butter, softened

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 - 1/2 cups flour

  • 100 grams dark chocolate roughly chopped

  • 100 grams Toblerone Dark or Frey Chocobloc Noir, roughly chopped

    50 grams Meiji Milk Chocolate, roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees / Gas Mark 4. Cream together the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Add the egg and baking powder; mix thorougly. Add half the flour and the chopped chocolates and mix well. Add the remaining flour and mix until well-combined.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes. Cool on a rack before storing in an airtight container. Makes 50 cookies.
