Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every time it gets cold and rainy, I crave homemade cookies. I can blame my mom for this. Because growing up, I could always count on her making cookies whenever it was cold and rainy, which happened more often than you think in sunny California.

Knowing this, my best friend would always come home with me just to have some of my mom’s cookies. And it wasn't just my friends, my brothers friends would make an excuse to come over too.

Her specialty was chocolate chip cookies. Mmm, I remember walking in the front door and the smell of chocolate chip cookies wafting through the air. The aroma was all butter and chocolate and just utterly delicious. Needless to say, rainy days still bring all those memories back to me. And just like my mom, I also make cookies on cold, rainy days.

Today was no exception. We might not have gotten the snow that was predicted here in Georgia, but we got the cold, rainy days with ice storms. This is what I woke up to the next morning. It looked like a winter wonderland with everything covered in ice.

And I was craving me some chocolate chip cookies, and not your traditional chocolate chip cookies either, no ma'am or sir. I was craving these Triple Chocolate Chip cookies that I found on Pinterest yesterday.

This is not my recipe but these cookies are just so good that I had to share them with you! I made a minor tweak by adding two tablespoons of corn starch instead of one teaspoon because I like the fluff the corn starch adds to the cookies. Next time I make these, I think I'll add in either coconut or butterscotch chips, or maybe both!

This recipe is by Nichole from Brown Sugar Mama and I must say, Thank you Nichole for creating these cookies! This is just one of many wonderful recipes she has on her site, so be sure to stop by and give her a little love too.

Yes, that's right these cookies have three different kinds of chocolate chips all combined into one cookie! They have white chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and chocolate chunks along with macadamia nuts.

Talk about comfort food for rainy days. These cookies are everything…plus more. Soft and tender bites of chocolate combined with buttery macadamia nuts. I almost ate the whole batch.

I tell you, those macadamia nuts will seduce you. Every. Single. Time.
