Since I am always creating pink versions of all my favorite recipes, I knew I had to come up with a way to create pink chocolate chips for my cookies... and I came up with the coolest idea!

I've seen pink chocolate chips in a spring mix once a year in the grocery store, but for some reason, among the semisweet, milk, white, dark, butterscotch, peanut butter morsel bags, there is no fruity flavored baking chips!

  Naturally, I decided to get creative and come up with a way of making my own!

I wanted something that would really pack a concentrated flavor punch into each tiny little morsel that would come in a variety of different flavors.

Since gelatin powders come in so many different flavor options, I thought they would be the perfect solutions for creating anything from strawberry, to orange, blue raspberry and more!

I used these to make Neapolitan chocolate chip cookies, but you can get creative and create your own unique flavored baking chips to use in your recipe. Everyone loves these super impressive baking chips and they make any dessert look like they came from a special gourmet bakery!

DIY Flavored Chocolate Chips

Yield: 1/2 cup chips

  • heaping 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons jello/gelatin powder (any flavor), more or less depending on desired color
*Double recipe as needed

Melt white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, for about 1 to 2 minutes, stirring each time. Stir in jello powder until fully dissolved and desired color is reached. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place melted chocolate mixture in a resealable plastic bag and snip off a tiny piece from the corner. Pipe onto the parchment paper to create chocolate chips by squeezing a small mound, releasing pressure and flicking to the side to create the little loop on top. Refrigerate chips until firm, about 15 minutes. Store in a resealable container or plastic bag. Use as needed in any recipe.
