Made with 52 percent cacao from sustainably sourced cocoa beans, the new Ghirardelli Non-Dairy Chocolate Chips are darker than your run of the mill semisweet without being too bittersweet.

Used the Ghirardelli Non Dairy Dark bits in my whole wheat chocolate chip cookie recipe. Rich chocolate with a wonderful mouth texture. Best cookies yet and highly satisfying. Got rave reviews from my family.
