Silver Spoon Milk Chocolate Chips
Advantages: tasty, good value, not too heavy
Disadvantages: none for me!
I used to be the worst cook, I even had trouble frying an egg! As my son approached weaning age I realised if I didnt want to raise him on processed food and expensive jars I would have to do something about this. That was a year ago and once id masted making things like spag bol, pies, roasting a chicken etc I had a bit of a baking fad. My favourite thing to make (and eat) is chocolate chip cakes. Ive been through a variety of different brands but I always come back to silver spoon!
The picture shows the white chocolate chip version, i actually havent tried these as I tend to stick to milk chocolate chips although apart from the colour of the chips and the slogan the packaging is very much the same.
The chocolate chips come in an 100g dark blue packet. The background is covered by tasty looking chocolate chips. They have a white spoon shape with the words "silver spoon cakecraft" printed on it. Underneath it states what the product is and says "Perfect for decorating, melting and baking".
The back of the packet gives tips on how to melt the chips. It also has tips on how to use them such as making faces on pancakes or covering untidy icing. Th right hand side displays the ingredients, nutritional values, company address and website and the best before date. It also shows you the true to life size of the chips inside.
I find the sizing of the pack to be ideal. I can use them for around 3x12 cakes.
A problem I've had with chocolate chips in the past is some of them sort of melt in the cake. Some people like this but that wasnt the effect i wanted, especially if some of them sunk and stuck to the cake case, id find bits of cake ripping off as you take the wrapper off. These stay pretty much in shape in the cake and dont sink to much either as they're lightweight.
Tastewise they taste great, my choc chip cakes always dissapear much quicker than my plain ones. I make 24 in one go (12 is never enough) and between 2 adults and 1 toddler they are gone within 48 hours usually!
I usually pick these up at tesco for a cheap 70p. They can be more expensive in some places- co op often charge over a pound when I've picked them up there before. I havent seen them in my local asda (much to my annoyance when doing the shopping there as their only substitute was useless!) Tesco often have an offer on them aswell such as 3 for 2 so I will stock up when they do.
For anyone making cookies or cakes and considering getting some chocolate chips for these I'd definitly say go for silver spoon, I have yet to find better and they're not a bad price either!
Summary: Best chocolate chips I've sampled!
