Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Semisweet chocolate chips are a pantry staple. These go-to chips are the heavy-hitters in so many of our favorite recipes like these big and buttery chocolate chip cookies (our Test Kitchen’s favorite recipe). But don’t sleep on these chips! They can do so much more than chocolate chippers—we’ve got recipes for elegant truffles, over-the-top cakes and much more.

Dark Chocolate Chips

Dark chocolate adds a bit of refinement and decadence to any dessert. The deep flavor of this chocolate pairs so well with flavors like mint, coffee and particularly ginger, as is the case with these gingered truffles.
