18 Creative Ways To Use Chocolate Chips
Make a Hard Shell
Chocolate chips are an easy way to add texture to your desserts, but if you want to mix it up, try adding a chocolate hard shell over ice cream, yogurt, or fruit.
Melt chocolate until the clumps disappear and add coconut oil. Then, pour it over any dessert and let it cool until it forms a crunchy, hard shell that’s gratifying to crack open.
Add to Caramel Apples
Caramel apples are the perfect combination of sweet, chewy caramel and crisp, tart apples, and chocolate is the perfect way to give them an upgrade.
Melt your chocolate chips and dip your apples in before adding any extra toppings you'd like, including peanuts, sprinkles, crushed candy, and mini chocolate chips.
Add to Cinnamon Rolls
Chocolate chips are a quick way to upgrade cinnamon rolls, whether homemade or store-bought. Simply sprinkle some on top or stuff a few in the rolls' crevices.
To more thoroughly incorporate your chocolate chips, add them to your dough along with the cinnamon sugar or melt a few to blend into the frosting.
Make Chocolate Bark
Chocolate bark is one of the fastest and tastiest desserts you can create, and using chocolate chips makes it that much easier.
Just melt some chocolate chips, and then spread the melted mix on parchment paper along with any add-ins you want from fresh or dried fruit to nuts, candy, chips, or pretzels.
Add to Puppy Chow
Puppy chow is a tasty sweet mix of Chex cereal coated in powdered sugar, and chocolate chips make a great addition to the snack.
Make a chocolate chow with Chex, caramel, powdered sugar, chocolate chips, and coconut flakes, and add any other tasty ingredients you can think of like nuts or nut butter.
