I've heard of dusting the chips, or blueberries, etc in flour and that way they don't settle to the bottom of the cake, cookie, brownie batter.

I don't know if it works for choc chips. But I toss a Tbsp or so of flour in with blueberries so that they wont sink to the bottom. HT

On chocolate cakes... you can dust the chips in cocoa as well for the same effect... adds a little more richness. Same goes for flouring the pans. If you are one who practices greasing and flouring, then you can use cocoa instead of flour on chocolate cakes.
