A Triple Chocolate Cookie Challenge

When I received an email asking me if I'd like to review Domino's Triple Chocolate Cookies I'm not going to lie, I was more than a bit sceptical. It's one thing to get a takeaway pizza but takeaway cookies?  They did however suggest that I compare their cookies to my homemade version. At that point I thought why not and rather liked the challenge they'd set. I do have to admit at this point that I've never actually made triple chocolate cookies before but it was a good excuse to try out a new recipe.


I found said recipe on epicurious.com and it can be found here. I made the cookies before I ordered in the ones from Domino's. I went down the all American cookie route and made mine big and bold.  It was a pretty easy recipe and they tasted chocolately yet quite light.


Later that evening, I took the opportunity of Mr CB being away for the night to order in a rather nice pizza and cookie feast.  My verdict on the cookies? They were a lot smaller than I thought they would be but were pretty damn good.  They had a denser brownie like texture on breaking into them and had lovely gooey milk and white chocolate chips. What surprised me most was that they weren't too sweet.  I don't think I would go down the route of ordering in cookies but let's face it not everyone likes baking as much as I do.  If you are among the latter group then I would say go for it as you won't be disappointed.

  1. It was a great challenge wasn't it? I like the look of your cookies - they definitely look homemade and more like a cookie. I found the Domino's ones to be quite dense and brownie like. The ones I received were quite burnt -yours looks quite nice!

  2. So which ones did you like the most - or are you being diplomatic and not going to say? :-) Funnily enough I've been invited to do the same challenge by Domino's and was planning to bake cookies (and order theirs, yum) next week - using a different recipe to you though. In fact I haven't made chocolate cookies before so I hope they turn out ok!

  3. What an interesting challenge. I can't imagine ordering take away biscuits, but would never order pizza either, but it's something my sons will probably try at some stage.
    Yours look far lovelier. J x

  4. I'd go home made every time - I just don't expect a pizza place to turn out great biccies!
