Expert Tips

One cup miniature semisweet candy-coated chocolate candies for baking can be substituted for the chocolate chips.

Several brands of candy coating are available, and each may melt a bit differently. The white color varies, and when melted, some are thinner than others. Make a note of the brand you prefer to work with, and watch carefully while melting.
