TIP OF THE DAY: Fast Decorating With Chips

Need a quick dessert, but want a touch of both fancy and homemade?

Grab store-bought cupcakes or cake and a bag of baking chips, regular or mini.

They’re available in a rainbow of flavors/colors: butterscotch, cappuccino, caramel, cherry, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mint, peanut butter, peppermint (white chips with bits of candy cane) and vanilla (white chocolate). We found them all on Amazon.

Nestle’s makes a Winter Blend of dark chocolate and mint chips that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.

  • Top ice cream, pudding and other desserts.
  • Garnish the whipped cream atop desserts or beverages.
  • Add to trail mix and granola.
  • Toss a few onto cereal or yogurt.
  • Melt as a dip for potato chips, pretzels and fruit.
  • Add to crêpes, pancakes and waffles.
  • Toss into brownie, cake, cookie and muffin batter.
  • Add to a trifle with pound cake or ladyfingers, custard or whipped cream and fresh fruit.
  • Enjoy as a candy fix instead of something more caloric (1 tablespoon of Nestlé chocolate chips is 70 calories).
