Customer Q&AAsk a Question

What does the "M" stand for when referring to 1M, 4M, etc. baking chips? What is the difference between these types of baking chips?
The "M" in the titles refers to the baking chips’ count per pound. So for example, 1M relates to 1000 chips per pound whereas 4M baking chips have a slightly smaller size and you can get 4 times the amount for a total of 4000 chips per pound. 1M is typically regarded as a standard size. Number values below 1 will have a larger size diameter and less chips per pound, whereas numbers greater than 1 will be smaller in diameter but you'll get more chips per pound. The graphic below allows you to see the difference between the many sizes we carry on our site.

Customer Reviews


We have used this brand for nearly 6 years and have been happy since then. Quality product and WEbstore selling it makes it easy ordering to delivery. This makes cakes shiny if you can temper it but we dont and it comes out great looking anyways. I think you wont be disappointed. Order it and see for your self but mostly taste the quality of chocolate. Dont skip on quality product that your customer can taste.

Sergey D. from Good Choice on 12/06/2021

These are the only chocolate chips we use! We love the bittersweet quality of these chips because you get a true chocolate flavor in your baked goods. Very handy that we can buy them in such a large quantity as we go through them fast.

Dixi D. from Savory & Sweet Catering on 09/08/2021

Great value for very good dark chocolate. Webstaurantstore ships quickly and packages the meltable items with cold packs and thermal (that silvery stuff) covered material to arrive in best possible shape. I ordered the product on Fri night and it arrived at my door on Monday!! These guys are very dependable!

Eric T. on 06/08/2021

These Ghirardelli chocolate chips are the n=highest quality and the best chocolate chips on the market. The price is the most competitive all around. After ordering, it was shipped and received in a matter of days! Best supplier ever!!!

Tracey W. from 2 Country Club Lane on 02/28/2021

When you need good quality Chocolate for melting or baking these are the best as far as I'm concerned. Because you can buy as little as 5 lbs or as much as 25 lbs and more. Using a good quality chocolate make a difference and those that buy your food will notice

Sal D. from Fragrances On The Run on 02/19/2021

Was concerned about this arriving melty since it was a bit warm when I ordered. It came with a disposable ice pack to keep the chocolate perfect. This is the same chocolate you can purchase in the store (in smaller packets) but so much better in bulk. I couldn't find these chips anywhere else in bulk except from Ghiradelli direct and the shipping was very expensive (west coast to east coast).

Janet M. on 10/12/2020

We use this chocolate as a part of our signature blend for our handmade from scratch chocolates. It does run a bit on the pricey side.

Connie W. from I Live For Dessert on 09/28/2020

Ghiradelli chocolate baking chips are not too dark and not too sweet. Melts easy -- not the plastic-y kind. Quality product that I would purchase again. Only wish there was a higher cacao percentage sold too.

Esther L. on 06/09/2020

A very good quality chocolate that makes wonderful ganache, tempers well, and tastes great. This is some of the best American style chocolate on the market.

Patricia C. on 06/08/2020

These chocolate chips can be hard to find, but are a great alternative to a regular semi-sweet chocolate chip. We use them for cookies all the time.

Erin K. from  on 05/21/2020

The ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate is one of my favorites for baking. It is excellent in our brownies. I love being able to purchase it in 25lb boxes. Everything was shipped quickly and the chocolate had ice packs on it so that it wouldn't melt in transit.

Alissa N. from Black Tie Desserts on 05/15/2020

we use these baking chips in almost anything chocolate that comes out of our bakery. They are delicious. You certainly cannot go wrong with these baking chips.

Samantha B. from Samantha's Sweets on 11/25/2019

This Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate is great it is Bittersweet so I do use it for making brownies and scratch made cakes and they always come out delicious

Emila from Emila's Sweets on 11/07/2019

The larger size chocolate chips make the perfect chocolate chip cookies. With each bite, you can taste the melting, oozing chocolate. The smaller chips disappear in cookies and are tasteless. People are constantly asking me for my cookie recipe. I tell them it is just the one off the bag. It is the chips that make the difference.

Aimee F. on 10/31/2019

These baking chocolate chips from Ghirardelli are the best in the business when it comes to baking. They are very tasty and great for baking cookies with.

Alex P. on 07/12/2019

I love this product and use it in combination with other chocolates to create just the flavor I want. Easy to work with. Will buy again.

Bente P. from Ka'ana TS Inc. on 05/16/2019

Love these chocolate chips! We use them at home for everything from chocolate chips, to melting them in milk to make hot chocolate. I find semi-sweet chocolate chips to be too sweet, so these are the perfect hint of bitterness to satisfy cravings for dark chocolate.

Julia B. on 03/03/2019

Great quality dark chocolate! This size is a bit big for cookies but it is perfect for meting and using in creams and ganaches. Love it!

Shohina T. on 01/09/2019

This has been the perfect chip for many of our cookies. Great flavor, we prefer the bittersweet, size and value. It melts down easily to use as a filling for shortbread too.

Lisa R. on 12/29/2018

This is my go to chcolate for my decadent chocolate brownies, it makes the most delicious fudgy brownies, and the price cannot be beaten. I will definitely be buying more.

Annalee G. on 10/28/2018

I absolutely love these Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips. We use them in our dark chocolate brownies and the flavor it gives them is divine. We recommend these.

T A. from Mom's Bakery on 08/22/2018

A terrific quality brand of bittersweet chocolate chips that are ultra creamy and tasty. The chips are great for melting down and using in our chocolate fountain.

Emmie L. on 08/13/2018

You can barely get these from the manufacturer for a price this low! Great bittersweet chocolate. We use them in our large chocolate chip cookies at our bakery and the dark chocolate balances great with the sweet cookie dough! Also melts down very easily and smoothly if need be.

Corner G. on 03/22/2018

A really nice quality bittersweet chocolate baking chip that is excellent and really great for making ganache fillings. Excellent chocolate quality and great for our dark chocolate bagel spread.

Rich M. from Round Bagel on 03/12/2018

I ordered these by mistake and I am glad. I just made chocolate chip cookies using the Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips and they taste amazing. It’s a prefect blend.

Gina P. on 02/16/2018

We use these bittersweet chocolate chips for cookies, decorations and melting in our bakery and love them. They are the perfect amount of dark & sweet to give a rich chocolate flavor and their larger size is great for the tops of cookies.

Jacqui S. from Fika, LLC on 02/12/2018

We swear by Ghirardelli chocolate for all of our baking needs. These 60% Ghirardelli chips make amazing chocolate chip cookies. We also use them for making a decadent, but not too sweet, ganache. They melt perfectly, creating a smooth ganache, with excellent flavor.

Joseph R. on 01/25/2018
