What is the secret to chewy cookies?

The secret? Moisture! Let’s explore how the ingredients in these cookies help to make them chewy.

Brown Sugar

Our Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe contains brown sugar. This holds in  more moisture. You can feel the moisture in brown sugar when you touch it.

Baking Powder

In this recipe there is baking powder in this recipe as opposed to baking soda. Why? Baking powder is more acid, which helps to prevent spread. Thin cookies are crunchy not chewy!

Egg Yolks

We have added extra egg yolks because egg yolks contain more fat than the whites. Fat contains moisture.

Why does the recipe for Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies call for call for Dutch-processed cocoa powder?

Dutch-processed cocoa powder is specially prepared so that its natural acids are neutralized. This also helps to give the cocoa powder its dark colour. So perfect for these cookies!

We also wanted to use baking powder in the recipe to keep the cookie chewy. And Dutch-processed cocoa powder pairs perfecting with baking powder, as it takes care of the acid component in leavening.

Can I use regular cocoa powder in this recipe instead?

You can, but the recipe will produce a less chewy cookie. And if you do use regular cocoa powder, replace the baking powder in equal amounts with baking soda. The two ingredients will react with one another to create a rise.
