Chocolate for Cookies

Nick MalgieriComment

A reader has asked: I used cut-up chocolate instead of chocolate chips for some cookies recently and the chocolate oozed out of the cookies onto the pan and burned. Should I have floured the chocolate or done something to make this work?

A: Chocolate chips are especially formulated to hold their shape when baked, so they are better for cookies than cut-up chocolate.
