Chocolate Chips – Different Varieties

I love chocolate chip cookies, as does everyone in my family. I have a favorite recipe that I use that I am going to post below. However, every once in a while I like to change things up & use chips other than the semi-sweet variety.

Here are a list of verified gluten-free chips from Nestle:

  • milk chocolate chips
  • semi sweet morsels
  • chocolate chunks
  • semi sweet mini morsels
  • milk chocolate morsels
  • premier white morsels
  • peanut butter & milk morsels
  • milk chocolate & peanut butter swirled morsels
  • semi sweet & premier white swirled morsels

***The Nestle butterscotch chips are not gluten-free.

If you are looking for a butterscotch chip, Hershey’s are gluten-free, as are these others:

  • Special Dark
  • cinnamon
  • semi sweet
  • milk chocolate

Enjoy Life makes a gluten-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, tree-nut free, soy free, egg free and casein-free chocolate chip.
