Top description[edit]

On the top of the page, it says "They are available in numerous sizes, from large to miniature, but are usually around 1 cm in diameter." Really? ONE WHOLE CENTIMETER? That's a big chocolate chip to me. Maybe I just have not been exposed to enough chocolate chips, but perhaps the top could be rewritten and omit the "around", and add in the diameter of a mini chip?WIERDGREENMAN (talk) 16:30, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Why are chocolate chips sometimes used in cookies? This needs additional sources for verification. (talk) 13:40, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Melting temperature compared to regular chocolate[edit]

There's nothing in the article concering the higher melting temperature of chocolate chips compared to regular baking chocolate. Additives in the chocolate chips raise the melting temperature. I understand that this is done to ensure that the chips retain their shape when baked. Some people think these additives are detrimental to a good flavour/texture in the chocolate.

I've been told that there are recipes that are sufficiently temperature sensitive that chips will not produce a good result compared to baking chocolate. That seems odd to me, since the dofference is only a few degrees C. (talk) 18:24, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
