Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips in Allergy-Friendly Minis, Chunks & Dark Morsels

0

Updated 2020! Over the years, many brands of dairy-free chocolate chips have emerged, but I keep coming back to Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. I can always count on them to be allergy-friendly for all readers, easy to find, and relatively affordable. And they’re pretty darn tasty, too. I use them in recipes regularly, from Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Ice Cream to Allergy-Friendly Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars.

Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips in Allergy-Friendly Minis, Chunks & Dark Morsels

It can be hard to find chocolate chips that are not only dairy-free, but also soy-free (no soy lecithin), and nut-free (with no nuts on the line). But Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips cover the bases. Enjoy Life even goes the extra mile with allergy testing and practically every certification available. And these morsels are available in three varieties, and two types of packages. You can get the Mini Chips and Dark Chocolate Chips in packable snack bags!

Mini Chocolate Chips (also available in Snack Packs & Bulk Sizes)

Every time I crack open a bag of these little gems, I’m comforted with the familiar scent and pleasing taste of pure semi-sweet chocolate. It makes me wonder why a manufacturer would add lecithin, butterfat, milk, or any other allergens for that matter. I used to lean on full-size morsels, but now prefer these dairy-free mini chocolate chips for many recipes. They’re perfect for making things like meringues, dairy-free ice cream, and homemade chewy granola bars. And they melt more evenly and quickly when making chocolate covered treats.

Semi-Sweet Mega Chunks (also available in Bulk Sizes)

Shaped like little gold bars, these much more substantial morsels are a true treat in brownies, cookies, and no bake cookies, where jumbo bites of chocolate add to the indulgence. The semi-sweet chocolate itself is identical to the Minis in taste, but it has a lot more presence. In our house, these chunks are also enjoyed frequently as an afternoon pick-me-up. (We wish these were available in snack packs!)

Dark Chocolate Morsels (also available in Snack Packs & Bulk Sizes)

These morsels are classically sized chocolate chips made with 69% cacao for a richer taste. We thought they were still mild enough for kids to love, but they do have a more grown-up vibe. They aren’t quite as smooth in flavor as Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Bars (the ingredients are a touch different), but they do add a nice contrast to sweet and healthier recipes. I use them to make Trail Mix, Healthy Muffins, and Edible Cookie Dough and

According to the company, all Enjoy Life products are free–from wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, soy, egg, sesame, casein, sulfites, lupin, mustard, fish, shellfish & crustaceans. But they use an outside facility for their baking chocolate. Here are some further details from Enjoy Life.

Most of our products are made in a dedicated dairy-free facility. Our baking chocolate is produced in a facility that also processes dairy and soy, however, they are produced on a dedicated dairy-free and soy-free line.

I’ve been able to count on Enjoy Life chocolate chips for years. I trust them for allergen safety, quality dairy-free ingredients, and taste. They work great in baking, and my husband and I devour the chocolate chunks as a treat. I love the mini chips for all types of recipes – they infuse perfect little bites of semi-sweet chocolate throughout. And I lean on the dark chocolate chips when going for less sweet. No one can tell that these aren’t “classic” chocolate chips.
