Homemade baking chips are easy and simple to make. You wouldn't think that they are but I promise they are. Promise. Fingers NOT crossed. These homemade almond butter chips take a few simple household staple ingredients to make, a wee bit of your time, and a freezer. (That's not optional). Of course if you don't want almond butter you can make homemade peanut butter chips too. They're equally delicious. Now a quick disclaimer. These chips MUST be stored in the freezer. MUST. Not optional. The minute you take them out of the freezer you've got to add them to your recipe. They melt really fast. There is a recipe on Chocolate Covered Katie for Homemade Peanut Butter Chips that WON'T melt at room temperature and includes peanut flour and cacao powder--but I didn't have any of those on hand and my local health food store doesn't sell peanut flour. Aaaaand I'm impatient and didn't want to wait. These are great for cooking because you are going to love adding a handful of these to your oatmeal raisin cookies, chopped cranberry and almond cookies, or peanut butter chip chocolate cookies. Or just a handful plain like me. I hear coconut oil is good for the hair. I haven't heard anything about the hips though.
