Cheap Chocolate Chips

Just a really quick tip today.

I was baking last weekend and as I chopped my cheap & cheerful chocolate for chocolate chips I wondered if everyone does this?

Chocolate chips for baking between 80p & £1.07 for 100g 

Any supermarket own brand value range chocolate between 27p & 30p per 100g

I just chop it up with my great big knife. It takes 2 minutes.

Obviously if your recipe calls for 80% cocoa fancy chocolate this is not going to work, but for pretty much everything I cook it's great.

  1. Do they work just like chocolate chips that come in packets?

  2. I use them for cookies, muffins and cakes and they seem to do exactly the same job.

  3. I never thought to do that but you're right. It's SO much cheaper!

  4. That's a great tip, I could even buy the brand name cheaper than the chips

    1. Good point! When it's for baking it seems a waste to use anything too expensive - I know I can't taste the difference!
