CHIPS VS BAR: A BAKING BATTLE

Solid baking chocolate comes in two forms: block or bar, and chips. Bittersweet, semi-sweet, milk, and white chocolates all have these two options. But they are not the same, and will affect your baked goods differently.

Chocolate blocks or bars have more cocoa butter, and will melt quickly and smoothly. Whereas chocolate chips have less cocoa butter, and have added stabilizers to help keep their shape. When you melt chocolate chips, they will appear smooth, but when they cool, they will solidify with a waxy, gritty texture. Which is definitely not something you want in your ganache, frosting, or sauces. Chips are best for cookies and brownies.

So, when a recipe calls for a chocolate baking bar, it’s best to not substitute with chips.

On the other hand, the reverse is absolutely acceptable. Some might even say preferable. Putting chopped up baking bars, feves, or disks into your cookies, for example, will create absolutely glorious puddles of chocolate.

Store your chocolate tablets in a cool, dark place, ideally between 18 to 24°C. You can use the refrigerator, but place the chocolate in an airtight container to keep the moisture and humidity out—and retain its full range of flavors, of course!
