Yes - it would be, except that the "chips" are too small to be "shaved" and generally shaving chocolate uses something like a vegetable peeler or a knife to "shave" it into wide thin strips or curls.

If you're just trying to break down the chips into smaller pieces .... assemble your food processor with the steel-blade attachment (placing the workbowl and blade in the freezer for an couple of hours will help reduce heat) .... add the chips ... them "pulse" until they are as find as want.
