This recipe calls for chocolate “chunks”. I usually just use chips; however, if we have a chocolate Santa or gargantuan chocolate kiss on-hand, I will often hack that thing up and throw it into recipes like this. The kids would much rather have a gooey treat like this than a hunk of solid chocolate to gnaw. 😉
