If you’re any kind of a chocolate fanatic like I am, sometimes Hershey’s simply won’t do. I’ve even outgrown Nestle. The chips don’t melt nicely, the flavor is subdued. I also recently learned that chocolate chips have waxy stuff in them so they keep their shape, yuck. Since then I’ve been using bars of chocolate chopped up. Ghirardelli bars get really expensive, $3 or more most places, but I’ve found an almost perfect alternative…
This chocolate is insanely good straight up, but chopped up and thrown into a giant chocolate chip skillet cookie (which you will be seeing soon… it’s in my oven as I type!) it’s unbelievable. I am no chocolatier, but I know that when chocolate snaps when you break it that it is good quality. This has that snap! It’s cocoa content is kept a secret by these swedish people, but I’d guess that it’s around 55-60% based on its flavor. At only $1 per 3.5 oz bar, these are a steal!!
Look… they even imprint some pretty little stars on the bars! It’s like a little piece of christmas on each square.
