It’s hard to beat the taste of a fresh-baked chocolate cookie, with gooey chocolate chips and perfectly chewy cookie coming together to form a masterpiece. However, whether you are out of chocolate chips or looking for an alternative, you can use a substitute for chocolate chips in cookies.
Semi-sweet is the most popular type of chocolate used in chocolate cookies and it is also available in bars. Milk chocolate or dark chocolate bars may also be chopped up and used as a replacement for chocolate chips.
If you are wanting to replace chocolate chips for a vegan option, you can still add chocolate. Vegan chocolate contains only sugar, unsweetened chocolate, and cocoa butter. It does not contain any milk, making it vegan-friendly.
Whether you ran out of chocolate chips, want a different flavor, or are looking for a vegan option, there are several different alternatives to using traditional chocolate chips in cookies. You can easily substitute out chocolate chips without having to completely change the cookie recipe.
