New See’s Chocolate Chips
Imagine this: See’s Candies and chocolate chip cookies — all in one.
If that doesn’t get your lips smacking, I don’t know what will.
Now, you can enjoy the truly blissful taste of the two together with See’s Candies new semi-sweet chocolate chips. There’s even a cookie recipe included on the back of the package to make baking a batch super easy.
The chips are larger than your usual ones — about 1/2-inch in diameter. What that means is when the cookies come out of the oven, you get so much more ooey-gooey chocolate in every bite.
The recipe makes perfect chocolate chip cookies, too — crispy on the edges, chewy in the center and with a load of chocolate chips throughout.
That’s even more true because I used the entire 1-pound bag of chips for the recipe. It calls for 2 cups of the chips. But really, once you measure that out, you don’t have very many chips left in the bag, so you might as well use them all.
See’s gets its chocolate from the fabulous Guittard Chocolate Company of Burlingame to make its wonderful, homespun candies. Guittard is also the source of the chocolate for these chips.
A bag is $5.55 at See’s stores or on its Web site.
With high-season for cookie baking just around the corner, there’s no better time to try a bag.

Beautiful cookies! Those chocolate chips look perfect.
I grew up on See’s Candies and LOVE LOVE LOVE them! Can’t wait to get my hands on a bag of these and yes, cookie baking season is just around the corner. Although my season is pretty much all year round!
I’m a huge fan of Guittard chocolate and I know I’d go crazy for these chips! Adding more chips to chocolate chip cookies is always the best way to go. 🙂
As much as I nosh on fancy chocolates, I always have a soft heart for See’s. The brittle and rocky road gets me each time. I didn’t know they were from Guittard!
The chocolate chips and the cookies look and sound amazing! See’s is associated with so many memories… 🙂
Can’t wait to try this recipe. Only problem is that I can’t find See’s choc chips here in Australia. I’ve got an alternate brand – hope it tastes just as good!
Carolyn, I knew we were related when you used the whole bag of chips in it 😉 I mean why just leave a few?
The bigger the chips, the better the cookies! And that’s a fact.
Oh I must pick up some of these for my Mom to make cookies!

Already having known that See’s procures it’s chocolate from the Guittard Chocolate Company, I was a little perplexed when I saw a bag of See’s-branded chips in their store for $5.55. Is this not the same ingredient I already buy at my grocery store in a Guittard bag for $3.49??
Jason: It’s similar. It’s indeed Guittard chocolate. But it’s a See’s brand and the chips are larger than the norm. 😉
I have made these cookies and they are absolutely fabulous and a big hit wherever I take them. The chocolate does melt in your mouth and it is not the same as making them with guittard chips. Yum!
