These major chocolatey chocolate chip cookies actually came from a mix. But not just any mix.
Master Pastry Chef and Mr. Chocolate himself, Jacques Torres now has a convenient way to make his famous chocolate chip cookies.
I was excited to give them a go because I use his scratch recipe all the time and it is one of my absolute favorites. Check out this older post I did on making them and trust me when I say that they are ridiculously good. The original recipe just takes some time (overnight chilling), more than one kind of flour, giant chocolate wafers to bake inside. So, I don’t always have the time to plan to make them or the right ingredients on hand.
That’s why this little mix came in handy to curb my cookie cravings. You just add butter and eggs. I was a little skeptical about the kind of chocolate that would be included in the bag because when I pressed around, it didn’t feel like it would have the big wafers I am used to with his recipe.
But oh boy … was I wrong. They are ginormous and bigger than the big ones I usually use. Here they are next to regular size chips on the right.
And here they are in my hand. Yes and yum. These are the kind of chocolate chips …I mean chocolate wafers that I can get behind. Or maybe even chocolate saucers, they’re so big.
Okay… this is what I’m talking about. Look at all that warm chocolate spilling out when you take a bite. So good.
A couple of things to note about these cookies… The mix is a little pricey. Like $18 for the bag. So I will probably stick to making them from scratch, unless I want to give the mix as a gift. That being said, the chocolate and ingredients I buy to make his original version ends up being around the same price when everything is said and done.
Also… if you do buy the mix and make them, let your dough chill for a while so they don’t spread as much. My cookies went a little flat.
And not quite like his scratch recipe cookies. Photos below are for reference from an older post. Check it out here.
See what I mean. These are insane.
You really have to make them one day! Here’s the recipe for his famous cookies:

These look delicious.
Thanks for the post.
this are sweety, the most I love is the desordre of the chocolate inside them
These look delicious! I’ve never baked chocolate chip cookies with wafers, but they make the cookie look extra fancy. I won’t be picking up an $18 mix, but I’m absolutely going to make the version you’ve linked to!

Mabel, me encanta Bakerella , y así espero que esto no va a ser la tendencia. Hi Bakerella, thanks very much for letting us know about Jacques Torres and his mixed bag of chocolate chip cookie goodness – I think it might be a good idea for me to keep a bag in the cupboard for those times you need a quick dessert for something special!
Those chips look like the ones I use – Guittard’s Super Cookie Chips. Huge puddles of chocolate surrounded by just enough cookie structure to hold them intact. (The picture on the Guittard website doesn’t do them justice; they’re a bit bigger around than a quarter.)
When I was in NYC a couple of years ago, I went to his shop and bought a pound of the chocolate wafers. I can’t remember if I ever made the cookies, but I do know I enjoy those chocolate wafers. LOL! Thanks for the reminder!
LOVE his cookies! This mix would make a great GIVEAWAY!!
On a diet :((( but I have seen that mix for sale on his website, looks great :D
OMG! I love, love, love the Jacques Torres’ Chocolate Chip cookie recipe! I saw him make them on the Chew and I have been using it ever since. If you haven’t tried them, I recommend you buy a package of his mix or just make up a batch yourself. you WONT be disappointed, I promise!
This sounds so good! The bigger the chocolate chip, the better! I love that you call them saucers. What a great find!
I’m sitting here with a cup of coffee and now I am craving some CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! Yummy!
So so yummy!
These cookies look like perfection and that mix does sound handy for a quick fix!
