Chocolate chips are measured by weight, not volume. Most bags of chips are 12 oz. now. You can weigh them on a scale or estimate. 2/3 of the bag would be 8 oz. And you get to eat the rest!!
When the tides of life are against you
And the current upsets your boat
Don't think of things that might have been
Just lay on your back and float

This is from Wiki Answers -- so it appears that she just has to measure.1 1/3 cups should be a half pound of chips.
You are so right, and that's why chocolate chips usually come in 12oz bags...you have exactly 2 cups of chocolate in the package.
Just putting in my 2 cents worth, LOL. Thanks, Mike
Nestle chips are now 11 oz.
