Strangely, none of my vegan cookbooks contain any info on how to make your own.

Can anyone enlighten me, please?

Chop up a bar of vegan chocolate?

yeah that's what I do.or you can buy plamil, tropical source (from whole food market), supercook (from any supermarket) ones which are vegan

but it's cheaper and better to just give a choccy bar a bashing.

Aren't most semi-sweet choco chips dairy free anyway?

Yep - chopping up a bar of chocolate is BETTER than chocolate chips as you can make the bits the size you want them.

Some dark chocolate chips are vegan, but it's definitely easier to find vegan (and fair trade) bars.

This is the fun way:
Food Bag, vegan chocolate bar, tea towel and rolling pin
Place chocolate in bag, cover with tea towel than whack it with the rolling pin.

But if you're a perfectionist there's always this way:

melt chocolate, make a piping bag from a piece of greaseproof paper and pipe blobs on to a flat piece of greaseproof paper. Place in fridge to cool and there you go chocolate chips. You can vary the size to your own preference making both buttons or chips. Just be careful with chocolate as its easy to wreck the temper of chocolate by over working it or over heating it. Cocoa butter gives a better refined taste but is easily upset.
