This week I’m doing a comparison of non-dairy chocolate chips. I’ve only used two brands and, I don’t actually know if there are any other brands on the market. I use both the Enjoy Life & Chocolate Dream.
Enjoy Life comes in mini chocolate chips and chocolate chunks and the Chocolate Dream are more like the standard chip size.
I really like the mini chips for making homemade hot chocolate – melt in non-dairy milk over a stove & stir until thick. If you like a richer, thicker hot chocolate, add more chips. Here is a great recipe for homemade hot chocolate. Last time I made it I wasn’t paying attention & I used 1 cup chips…oops…it was SO INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS!! I’m making that mistake on purpose the next time I make the hot chocolate! I also switch between cashew & coconut milk. I love them both. So good.
I use the chunks in cookies – I haven’t used them for any else yet.
I use the standard size chips for cookies and for eating.
I really can’t taste any difference between the two brands; I like them both ~ for eating and baking/cooking.
