What to Make With Every Type of Baking Chip
There's so much more than just basic chocolate chips! We've got amazing recipes that make use of the classics, mini chips, butterscotch chips and much more.
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.
What is it about everything miniature that’s just so cute and extra appealing (just look at these mini desserts)? We love to stir mini chips into just about any bake. They add flavor and just a bit of charm—just look at this chocolate chip cranberry bread.
When you’re looking for something a bit smoother and sweeter than traditional semisweet chips, opt for milk chocolate. These morsels make all sorts of bakes—like these peanut butter cake bars—feel homier.
Butterscotch chips add a bit of old-fashioned flavor to recipes. Get that hint of buttery sweetness in recipes like these monster cookies and then bake your way through the rest of our favorites.
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.
Mint chips are an easy way to add minty flavor to any bake without the fuss of mint extract. This chocolate mint truffle tart (and lots of other great recipes) get a lift thanks to mint baking chips. So grab a bag (these are our editors’ favorites) and get baking!
