Do you have a favorite kind of chocolate chips?

I use this chocolate for most of my melted chocolate needs because it melts smoother than chocolate chips. There are no stabilizers in it, so I don’t have to “finesse it” to get it to melt. None of that in and out of the microwave seven times, stirring in between each 20-second burst and hoping it doesn’t scorch monkey business.

For my day-to-day baking that calls for in tact chocolate chips, I use Trader Joe’s semisweet chocolate chips (and stock up on their white baking chips before Christmas since they’re seasonal at my store).

Because I shop for many of my baking supplies based on price, if I didn’t have access to a Trader Joe’s, I would probably use Ralph’s grocery store-brand semi-sweet or Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet morsels.

I don’t splurge on more expensive chocolate chips like Ghirardelli or Scharffen Berger or fancier chocolate chunks for the “everyday” goodies that I make for my family. I reserve that kind of chocolate for extra-special baking occasions.

Happy Chocolate Chip Day and I hope you have something with chocolate chips in it today!

    I think I have made those about a thousand times!! They make the house smell absolutely divine! :-)

    • That’s interesting that of ALL the recipes of mine that you’ve made, those are the ones you really love. Do you follow the recipe to the T? I haven’t made them in…like 3 years! Lol. I remember them as being good, but not like…omg I am going to make these again and again. Now, ask me about cake bars that I’ve been making lately..now THOSE are repeat recipes :)

  4. What a great list of recipes!
    I hope that I find time this weekend to make those no bake coconut chocolate chip balls. They look delish!

  6. Yumm. This may be my favorite national day!

  7. National Chocolate Chip Day is a day that I definitely need to celebrate! What a happy day!! :)

  8. Hi Averie. Sorry I haven’t commented in a while, I have stopped by everyday though and read your posts. This May has been super crazy and I can’t wait for summer!

    I made my favorite chocolate chip cookies for National chocolate chip day and sadly we finished off the last cookie last night. I always use Ghirardelli 60% because I can get them so cheap up here. I always find them on sale at Safeway when I run out. It’s like fate! I think I picked up a boatload one time at 2 for $4.00 or buy one get one free. I also get the chocolate baking bars on sale as well. I have a whole shelf lined with these puppies.

    BTW, those boots that you picked up for Skyler are just too cute! I remember when Zoe was into pink like that. Not so much anymore as she is 12.

    • Absolutely no apologies necessary! And $2 bucks a bag is a great score…that’s cheaper than TJs. Gotta love stocking up at sales like that. I bet it feels like just yesterday your “Baby” was 5. And now she’s 12! I know I’ll be in the same boat soon!

  9. Wow, I didn’t even know there was a national chocolate chip day, too funny! Great recipes here, they make me want to go buy some ASAP!

  10. Love all your chocolate chip goodness! I just made brown butter chocolate chip malt cookies, and they are pretty darn delicious!
