What’s the difference between baking chocolate and chocolate chips?

Baking chocolate is in a bar shape and melts easily. Its sole purpose is to use in baking. Chocolate chips are sometimes used just to eat and sometimes baked with, but are made to keep their shape, and do not melt quite as well as baking chocolate. So long as you’re using semi sweet chocolate chips, the two can be used interchangeably the majority of the time.
