A question about a recipe: White Chocolate Snowflakes

A5ea8341 cd87 426a 9281 29b37a8a6a19  4204543665 7f2b7aebb6 o

I have a question about the ingredient "white chocolate, chopped" on the recipe "White Chocolate Snowflakes" from merrill. I see bags listed as white chips - my friends tell me that it really means white chocolate but I don't think so. If if doesn't say white chocolate, I think it's vanilla chips? Is there a difference? Are white chips really white chocolate?

I'm not totally sure whether white chips are white chocolate chips, but whatever they are, they'll have added stabilizers, so I'd go with chopped white chocolate if you can get it!

You are correct I think that usually they are not true chocolate. I think they have shortening instead of cocoa butter if all they say is white chips. Either way I agree with Merrill, I am not such a fan of using chips, even true chocolate chips, when plain chocolate is called for.
