To give your chocolate-chip cookies a special twist, try baking with one of the extraordinarily delicious specialty chips available by mail. We love (from left) Callebaut’s smooth, semisweet callets; Valrhona’s tiny, delicate, semisweet chocolate pearls; and Dagoba’s organic bittersweet choco drops.
Callebaut semisweet callets (2.2 lb. for $18.75); Valrhona “Les Perles” chocolate drops (2.2 lb. for $18.95); and Dagoba organic choco drops (8 oz. for $7.35 or a six-pack for $39.90), all available at Chocosphere (877-992-4626).
