Is it okay to shave frozen chocolate chips in a food processor?

I dont see why it would be a problem if people are using frozen berries in the food processor.

I wonder how that would turn out....

I don't know if they would be 'shaved' before they melted, but I am thinking of the bottom blade.

Maybe if you used a veggie slicer or grater blade, it might work.

I think I'd go buy a candy bar and shave that with a veggie peeler.

Whatcha making? That might help.

I don't think you will be able to get shavings from chips. They are just too small. I doubt it would work in the FP anyway. Chips are inexpensive though so buy a bag and give it a shot. I would freeze them first so that there is less chance of them melting, which I think would be a big possibility using the FP.

It is, because its a motor. So obviously it will create heat.
So GB is right, freeze them.

I have a hand held food chopper where the motor is on top and I used it to "grate" chocolate chips. It came out in small chunks slightly bigger than sprinkles. It worked for the recipe I was making at the time but didn't really "shave" it. If you want curly-q's I'd go with the veggie peeler on a candy bar or other blocks of chocolate.
