I am thinking of making some chocolate chip cookies.

This got me thinking, what have you found to be the best chocolate to use for chocolate chip cookies?

Thank you.

It depends on your taste. For adults, I usually use Lindt bittersweet (60% or 70%) but this can be expensive and I haven't found it in chip form. I've used Callebaut but I think it doesn't work in a cookie. I've also tried all the package brands. Ghiridelli has a 60% bittersweet choc chip that I am going to try next week and that looks to be a good bet and i'm going to mix in some white chocolate chips.

Ghiridelli 60% bittersweet (not semi-sweet)is the one recommended by America's test Kitchen. I agree with them.
