Java Chip Frappuccino Recipe with Espresso Chips
The Starbucks Java Chip Frappuccino is high on my list of coffee drinks to order. I love the texture the java chips add to the blended coffee drink.
Many of the copycat Java Chip Frappuccino recipes use chocolate chips. That works fine, but I discovered that espresso chips exist! They sound just perfect to use in a java chip drink.

Recipe Notes and FAQ
Do I have to make whipped cream?
You do not have to whip your own topping for this. You can use a can of Reddi-wip or any whipped topping you prefer. Of course, the topping is completely optional.
Do I have to use espresso chips?
You can use chocolate chips to make a java chip frappuccino. Espresso chips provide a deeper coffee flavor if that’s what you’re seeking.
What do espresso chips taste like?
Espresso chips taste like dark chocolate and coffee. The chips are a little softer than regular semi-sweet chips when you eat a few from the bag. People who love coffee will most likely enjoy espresso chips.
