How do you stop the chocolate chips from melting and running all over the place?

Is there part of the intrinsic design of a chocolate chip that prevents it doing so?

Or is this because of Quantum Cookie Mechanics?

The chocolate does melt, but it doesn't run - I don't know why though.
Maybe the chips are wellbehaved due to good upbringing?

Ah yes, the ol' cookie recipe urban myth...I've heard many versions myself...

Re: chocolate chips. There's an interesting story about chocolate chip cookies; see http://www.tollhouse.com/heritage/index.cfm for the full version. Seems a woman was making chocolate cookies for the Toll House Inn and ran out of time so she put in chocolate chips instead of melted chocolate, expecting it to melt. Well obviously it didn't, hence the Toll House cookie.
