Cookie Clicker Wiki

"Your amount of prestige (heavenly chips, for now) at any time is dependent on all the cookies you've ever forfeited by soft-resetting. Each time you reset, your "cookies baked (all game [should be: this game])" are added to that pool." - Orteil

Heavenly Chips are an ascension prestige mechanic introduced in Version 1.035. If you ascend, you will gain heavenly chips and prestige of the same magnitude, which increases CpS. The amount of heavenly chips is dependent on your forfeited cookies of all games. Every reset, the amount of forfeited cookies is incremented by 'Cookies baked (this ascension)', and will match 'Cookies baked (all time)' until new cookies are baked. Every heavenly chip you gain increases your prestige level. Heavenly chips can be spent on various upgrades during an ascension, including permanent upgrade slots to keep certain upgrades (including heavenly chip secrets, tech, and other heavenly upgrades) forever without having to buy them again. Other heavenly chip upgrades include Unshackled, which can unlock Biscuits, Not Biscuits, Maybe Biscuits, Pastries, the season switcher and season boosts, positive effects for golden cookies, the Dragon, offline production of cookies and synergy upgrades, milk, random drop chances (only when no Heavenly Chip secrets are owned), boosts to grandmas based on milk and kittens, buildings, QoL upgrades, Shimmering Veil, Golden Switch, lump upgrades, Keepsake, and two additional secret upgrades.

Wiping your save does not activate the prestige system, and also wipes your current amount of forfeited cookies and heavenly chips, all heavenly upgrades, and all normal upgrades (including those permaslotted). Currently, the maximum amount of heavenly chips you can have is 564.38 untrigintillion, though this is impossible to reach without cheating.

Calculating Heavenly Chips (Version 2.0)[]

The number of cookies you have to bake to get to the next Heavenly chip is:

where K is the number of heavenly chips you already have.

The total number of cookies needed is 1 trillion times M cubed:

where M is the number of heavenly chips desired.

The total number of Heavenly Chips is calculated by the following formula (the outer brackets indicate a floor function).

where N is the number of cookies that have ever been made, including all previous resets.

The first HC "Costs" 13=1 trillion cookies. The second one costs 23=8 trillion. The third costs 33=27 trillion, etc.

The following is a quick list of quantities of cookies baked (all-time), and how many Heavenly Chips they will yield after a reset (Keep in mind that this is not a complete table in the sense that you can receive Heavenly Chip quantities between displayed amounts, e.g. 42):

Tips and Tricks[]

Before you reset, try to obtain as many of the achievements as you can, so that you have a lot of milk and thus progress quickly on subsequent ascensions.

Note that the number of Golden Cookie clicks, as well as any achievements you may have obtained, is retained after resetting, so you do not need to worry about getting Leprechaun (and Black cat's paw) before resetting. However, this doesn't apply only for popping wrinklers or reindeer, so you'll need to get all 200 of each of those for their respective achievements in a single ascension.

Heavenly chips are an additive bonus to your CpS multiplier; they do not multiply with any CpS upgrade other than kitten upgrades.

Permanent Upgrade slots[]

When purchasing the Permanent Upgrade slots, you will get a chance to pick one upgrade you have purchased in the game session right before ascending, and apply it to all future games without needing to wait to unlock or purchase it. However, these choices are not locked, and can be changed at future ascensions for no cost.

Popular upgrades to put into permanent upgrade slots include Omelette (to speed up the search for Easter Eggs), the highest tier Kitten upgrade available, the highest tier upgrade available for the most expensive building, fortune upgrades, and Golden Cookie-related upgrades.

A comprehensive guide to Permanent Upgrade slots can be found here.

Don't worry about soft resetting![]

Heavenly chips' benefits far outweigh the costs of buying them. The CpS bonuses for having only a few hundred heavenly chips will allow one to trivially reach their previous status in only a day or so. If you're worried about resetting, you can check this guide. You can also simply export a save and email it to yourself (or simply save the code in a .txt file on your desktop. Nothing easier than that), just in case you're not satisfied with the Heavenly multipliers.


  • Heavenly cookies were a prestige item that were supposed to give a permanent 1% CpS (cookies per second) boost in Beta 1.0501. However, they were glitched and gave 10% each. Heavenly cookies could be made on the ascension screen where it said "Bake heavenly cookies". Each heavenly cookie costed 10 heavenly chips to bake. As the only other thing you could spend heavenly chips on are prestige upgrades, making these heavenly cookies are the heavenly chips' secondary function. This system was replaced by the prestige system soon after.
