Well, for those of you that don't know me, I love to cook and bake. So for me, it was a fun challange to make homemade chocolate chips.
So, being the quirky person that I am, I decided to make homemade chocolate chips. I know, I am strange.
I got my recipe here at Heavenly Homemakers. It is a pretty healthy recipe, since it is made with organic sucanat.
I really wanted to just throw everything in the microwave and it would be easy peezy, but I didn't. I actually followed the directions and put them in a glass jar in a pot on the stove.
Once it melts all together, you pour it into a dish so that you can refridgerate it so it hardens.
They were a little time consuming but boy did they taste delicious. They tasted a little like chocolate ganache to me, so not exactly like store bought chocolate chips.
I made them with the intentions of making chocolate chip cookies. I would love to tell you that they were tasty. However, our homemade chocolate chips didn't make it to cookies. They were all eaten to quickly.
Oh well, they were still a good as is.
Would I make them again, probably not, they were too time consuming and didn't yield alot for my family of six. Not to mention that I am trying to not eat so much chocolate, as it doesn't like my stomach very much, but it does however love my butt and thighs. We have a love/hate relationship.
