Substitutions for Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe:
Butter: Butter is essential to this recipe. We haven't tried it with dairy free butter but it might work!
Chocolate Chips: I haven't tried this recipe with other types of chocolate but I think it would be fine. I wouldn't recommend milk chocolate because I think it will be too sweet!
Cocoa Powder: Cocoa Powder is different from hot cocoa and cacao. Make sure you're using unsweetened cocoa powder.
Milk: You can substitute milk with half and half, low fat milk or non dairy milk.
Vanilla Extract: Helps to add flavor, we don't recommend substituting.
Instant Coffee:If you don’t drink coffee or don’t have any on hand, this recipe tastes great without it. However, the coffee brings out a richer flavor in the chocolate.
Eggs: We don't recommend substituting eggs, but you can read this article on Egg Substitutions for Baking if you need to substitute. Try it at your own risk!
Sugar: We don't recommend substituting white sugar unless you have to, but White sugar can be used interchangeably with brown sugar. You can add 1 teaspoon of molasses to white sugar to make brown sugar. Check out this post on Sugar Substitutes for Baking for other ideas.
All Purpose Flour: We don't recommend substituting the flour, but you can check out this article on Cake Flour vs. All-Purpose Flour or Substitutions for All-Purpose Flour In Baking. Don't substitute white flour for white flour, it will give the cookies a gritty texture.
Baking Soda: Baking soda is essential for this recipe. Do not substitute with baking powder.
Salt: Skip the salt if using salted butter.

Tips To Make The Best Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Chewy
Use salted butter - Salted butter works great! However, if you choose to use salted butter be sure to forgo the salt in the recipe. This will prevent your cookies from having an overly salty taste.
Leave space for the cookies to spread - These cookies have a tendency to spread a little bit in the oven. Leave a few inches of space between cookies to avoid them merging in the oven.
Skip the coffee: If you don't like coffee, skip it! It's not necessary for the cookies.
Double Chocolate Cookies FAQ
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are done when they are crispy on the outside and slightly soft within the center. The cookies should take shape and not be mushy after about 2 minutes of cooling on the sheet out of the oven
If you want your cookies to spread out more, make sure to not chill your dough. Using melted butter will also help your cookies to not spread out. Additionally, you can lightly tap the cookies on the baking sheet on the oven rack. By hitting the pan on the oven rack it will deflate the cookies a bit, letting them spread out.
You can use semi-sweet chocolate for chocolate chip cookies.
