Are Nestle chocolate chips good for anything besides their chocolate chip cookie recipe?

I grew up with said recipe but after trying some better recipes (the Torres/Leite is my favorite) with better chocolate, I don't know what to do with all the Toll House chips in my pantry. They don't melt like real chocolate (frightening) and I have no idea how to use them up outside of cookies. Any ideas?

  1. mix them and mini marshmellows in pancake mix for s'more pancakes.

    1. Yes, the world's easiest chocolate frosting. In a saucepan put 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup milk, and 1/3 cup butter. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute by the clock. Remove from burner. Dump in 1 cup chocolate chips and whisk until they are melted. Pour over cake or brownies in pan.

      1. I used to eat them out of the package. You could make a poor man's genache. They will eventually melt. Oh I know. You could make chocolate syrup sorta like Hershey's chocolate syrup. Alton Brown has a recipe out there.

        You could add a few to hot cocoa every time you have some although summer is approaching.

          1. If it's the dark chocolate chips (you'll need butterscotch, too) you can make the rice krispy treats. Still a family favorite. The krispy treats are frosted with the chips. They will melt, you just have to do it carefully.
