A type of chocolate produced as miniature bits that are used in baked goods that need a piece of chocolate to keep its shape such as for use in cookies. Cocoa butter is added as fat to Chocolate Chips so the shape of the chip is retained as much as possible when baked. Chocolate Chips can be melted for recipes requiring melted chocolate, but they contain more cocoa butter than regular bar chocolate, so they may not be as suitable. Chocolate Chips will become thick and somewhat grainy textured when melted while bar chocolate will be smoother and silky textured when melted. The varieties of Chocolate Chips that are available include bittersweet, semi-sweet, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. They may be produced in the shape of a small tear drop or a miniature bar.
