Triple-Chocolate Marble Cookies

Where does the time go? I know, it seems like we all say that every year. But this year has felt especially distant to me. In the beginning of the year, Krista's Baking Co. moved into a new home. The year started off slowly, and then we did a Kickstarter campaign! That was cool. And then we kept trucking along, came out with a ton of new products, and now all of a sudden it's almost November.

Our progress this year has been awesome, and I love that our team has this wonderful space in Ballard. The one thing that has bothered me this year, though, has been my lack of presence on social media and this here blog! A reason that I started KBC, is because I love to cook and bake and I wanted to share that with people. I wanted to regularly develop recipes and share the photos. This year, I haven't had a lot of time for that. I also never want to do a half-ass job at anything, so I've heard myself think, "I'd rather post nothing than a blog post with no substance." 

Well, let me tell you, this post has substance. These marble cookies are to-die-for and the recipe is so-long. But don't be scared by it!  It's basically just two different cookie dough recipes, which you then combine. Everyoneeee will be impressed when you show up with these :)

Can't wait to share more substance-filled recipes with you soon!

Triple-Chocolate Marble Cookies

We'll start by making the two cookie doughs separately; chocolate chip, and double chocolate.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Ingredients:

1 1/4 Cup flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 Cup cane sugar

1/4 + 1/8 Cup brown sugar

1/2 Cup unsalted butter, melted

1 large egg

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 oz. good quality dark chocolate (70%), chopped into chunks

Instructions:

1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt and whisk until combined. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine sugars and melted butter and beat with a whisk until full combined, about a minute. Add the egg and beat until combined. Add vanilla and whisk until combined.

3. Using a spatula, fold the flour mixture into the sugar mixture. Mix until fully combined, being careful not to over-mix. Fold in the chocolate chunks. 

4. Set dough aside while you make the other dough, or refrigerate covered over night. 

Double Chocolate Cookie Dough 

Ingredients:

1 1/8 Cup flour

1/4 Cup cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 Cup unsalted butter, melted

You will need... 

Flake finishing salt

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 

2. Scoop about 1 Tbsp of dough from each of your two doughs at a time, and combine them together. Use the palms of your hands to roll them into a ball, giving it a slight marble, while the dough is still separated. 

3. Place balls of dough onto your prepared baking sheets, spaced 2" apart. Press the tops down slightly with the palm of your hand and sprinkle with finishing salt. 

4. Bake for 7-9 minutes, until the edges have began to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 3-5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. 

5. Enjoy! Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for 3-5 days.
