Turning Chocolate Candy Into chocolate Chips - Is This Not a Good Idea?

niki rothman | Nov 15, 2006 06:30 PM

I want to make chocolate chip cookies. What I have is Dove chocolate candy - the one inch square pieces that are about 1/2" thick.

Is it a crazy idea to somehow try to chop them into chip sized pieces to make choc. chip cookies? I somehow imagine that trying this with the Cuisinart will result in some odd sized pieces and a lot of chocolate dust. Then I had an image of myself with a hammer and a screwdriver trying to break them up individually into maybe 1/4" chunks - and the pieces flying all over the kitchen. Or sticking them in a plastic bag and pounding it with a mallet or something. I've run out of ideas. Nothing seems right. Should I just wait until I can get some Nestle chips, or what?
