Do baking chips melt

Yes, baking chips melt too and when you melt them at 350 

degree in oven they melt a little and their shape does not 

change a lot like chocolate chip cookies which are easy to 

melt. And because baking chips are more resistant to melting 

than the chocolate chip cookies many people often overheat 

them in order to melt them completely but sometimes the 

result of overheating comes out to be horrible. So yes baking 

chips melt but not too much like chocolate chip cookies.
