Tips To Make Perfect Chocolate Chips
You can easily find compound chocolate in any bakery or chocolaterie. You can even look for it in your local grocery store. Break the chocolate in small pieces. Put all the pieces in a glass bowl. Now boil some water in a pan and place the glass bowl on the top of the pan carefully. Let it melt on medium flame. Mix the chocolate in intervals of ½ minute. Turn off the gas as soon as the chocolate melts. Let the melted chocolate cool down for 3-4 minutes. Place the melted chocolate in a piping bag. If you do not have a piping bag you can also make a DIY piping bag using a milk pack. Cut one end of the piping bag and start ejecting drops of chocolate on a butter paper or foil paper. Refrigerate for 5 minutes and your chocolate chips are ready.
