These are my go-to chocolate chips. As a frequent baker, I love that these are affordable and easy to find. I prefer dark chocolate over any other, and other brands I've found to still be too sweet. I haven't tried the Ghirardelli ones yet, but I'm so attached to these! They melt perfect, they bake in perfect, and they taste perfect! They make killer ganache and add the best gooey taste to cookies and brownies.

Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate chips are a staple in my house, particularly during the holidays. Whenever I make a candy or baking recipe that calls for semi-sweet or milk chocolate, I substitute these chips. They have a slight bitterness like most dark chocolate, but they’re also much smoother. They make all candy taste rich and sweet. I’m very selective about the chocolate that I use because I think many brands and flavors taste like plastic. But not these. These chips elevate the flavor of everything I add them to.

They’re also perfect to snack on with almonds when you need an energy boost.

I love the rich flavour of these chocolate chips. They’re perfect for baking and have an irresistibly smooth taste. You can fold them into a batch of cookies or use them as a topping on your favourite pancakes. Sometimes I just pop a few into my mouth if I’m craving something sweet and don’t want the calories of an actual desert! They’re widely available at most grocery stores in the banking aisles, and are a pretty great value for how much you get!

I used these for the first time the other day when I decided to make chocolate chip cookies! They were actually a really good substitute. I traded out my normal chips for these special dark ones and I enjoys the flavor they added

I love pretty much all of Hershey’s products I have ever tried. They never fail to disappoint! The chocolate is so creamy and soft and the flavors are always just perfect! Rite aid and CVS always have a great selection of Hershey and really good prices too!

My husband and I purchased a fondue set. We had it last year of thanksgiving and wanted to give it a try so we got this as to try with fruits and marshmallows, and it was okay. I love dark chocolates, but it didnt go well with the fruits as we were expecting it to be.

These are very rich and not pricey at all. You can find them at Walmart or probably any grocery store near you. They are small chocolate chips so easy for baking. I would definitely recommend this to others over regular chocolate because dark chocolate is healthier.

One of the best types of chips that can be used to bake cookies, it provides the perfect balance for a chocolate chip cookie as it helps to balance out the sweetness of the sugar used. Gives you the perfect cookie every time!

What is the difference between Hershey's special dark and their other chocolates? Do they source the cocoa from a different place or is it just a higher percentage of cocoa?
