When I saw the name of these cookies on a foodies web site, I knew I had to bake them ASAP. I was not disappointed with these soft, chewy, brownie-like cookies filled with three delicious flavors of chocolate chips. “Excellent” was how my husband described these Quadruple Chocolate Cookies…and we all agreed!

Tips for Making the Best Chocolate Cookies with Chocolate Chips

Quality ingredients make the best cookies. Look for Dutch process cocoa powder instead of ordinary cocoa powder. More on the differences between the two below. 

  • If you’re making these rich chocolate cookies for a special occasion, buy one of the more pricey brands of chocolate chips. Nestles brand will work well, but splurge if you’re able.
  • Guittard, Scharffen Berger’ and even Ghirardelli chocolate chips often rate better in taste tests.
  • Start with room temperature butter and eggs for the best incorporation of ingredients.
  • Use a cookie disher if you want consistent sized cookies.
  • These will come out of the oven looking slightly under baked. This ensures a chewy chocolate cookie.
  • When you add your dry ingredients, don’t over mix as this will activate the gluten and make a less tender cookie. Using a wooden spoon for this step allows for mixing instead of beating.
  • One of my favorite cookie making tips is to use a spatula to reshape your cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. Even if you roll the into perfect balls, they often don’t bake into perfect rounds. Tapping around the perimeter of any misshapen cookies will help improve their appearance.

What is Dutch Processed Cocoa?

I’ve had a box of Droste Dutch Processed Cocoa in my pantry since I’ve started blogging. It’s lighter in color and milder in flavor. But, beware. It can’t always be substituted with ordinary cocoa powder without consequences.

Dutch processed cocoa powder goes through a process of alkalinization which brings the pH to 7. This change in chemistry means it isn’t always interchangable with regular cocoa.

According to Serious Eats: Since Dutch process cocoa isn’t acidic, it doesn’t react with alkaline leaveners like baking soda to produce carbon dioxide. That’s why recipes that use Dutch process cocoa are usually leavened by baking powder, which has a neutral pH.

But, note that my recipe calls for baking soda. So this recipe is an exception! Just watch the ingredient list carefully when using a recipe calling for Dutch processed cocoa.

PRO-Tip: check the expiration date on your box of baking powder as it often expires in your pantry as it’s used less frequently.

  8. Just how big IS your pantry? I cannot find Dutch-process cocoa anymore…anywhere, not even at Whole Foods Market. If it were something these Texans put on BBQ, it would be everyplace. Keeping the recipe, cause eventually, I’ll find some!

  9. Marie, I’m having the same problem…Fresh Market used to carry Droste, but it hasn’t been on their shelves in months. I’ll let you know if I find a source.

    PS…my pantry isn’t large, but I have a baking cabinet with a shelf designated for chocolate 🙂

  10. Thanks, Lora!!!

  11. Oh yum, another recipe to try!

  19. The only thing I love more than a chocolate chip cookie is a quadruple chocolate chip cookie! The mix of the white chocolate chips, the milk chocolate, and the semi-sweet chips is to-die-for!!

  20. Like all of your baked good, these look awesome and would satisfy the chocolate lovers in my family. I’m not baking as much anymore because the reno is finally finished but I’ll tuck this away for a rainy day.

  21. very nice dish

  22. Dear Liz, what a treat of a chocolate cookie – of course, you are so right about the quality ingredients. Good ingredients make for delicious results. I can only imagine that these Quadruple Chocolate Cookies would taste totally irrestible with Belgian chocolate (which happens to be my personal favorite chocolate).
    Andrea
