Barry Callebaut Semisweet Chocolate Chunks, reviewed

Callebaut Chocolate Chunks

Barry Callebaut is one of the finest chocolate makers in the world, and one of the largest, even though you may not have heard of it. The company has been around since 1850 and has been focused on chocolate for the last century.

Nestle Tollhouse Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels, Reviewed

Tollhouse Dark Choc & Mint Morsels

I always like seeing a bag of limited edition chocolate chips pop up on grocer store shelves around the holidays, and seeing Nestle’s seasonal Tollhouse Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels was no exception. Flavored chips promise a little departure from standard chocolate chips in a form that is just as easy to incorporate into a cake or cookie dough. The problem is that not all ... Read More »

How to melt chocolate

Melted Chocolate

There are many recipes out there that call for melted chocolate, from brownies to cakes. Melted chocolate might not sound like a tricky ingredient, but it actually can be and is a place where many would be brownie-bakers run into problems. This is because chocolate tends to hold its shape as it melts (because the cocoa butter melts and the cocoa solids don’t), so unlike ... Read More »

Chewy Pecan Bars

There are some recipes that I’ve tried out thinking that they won’t really work out, when it seems like they’re missing an ingredient or the instructions are very strange.

A good white chocolate chip should taste like cream and vanilla, should melt smoothly and ... Read More »

Coffee Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Coffee Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

As much as I enjoy cookies and milk, I have to admit that I tend to lean towards cookies and coffee. I tend to drink more coffee than milk, although I do put steamed milk into my coffee when I’m making lattes and such, and it’s hard to beat the way that hot coffee can soak into a dunked cookie – especially when chocolate chips ...

See’s Semisweet Chocolate Chips, reviewed

See's Semisweet Chocolate Chips

See’s Candy is known for lots of delicious confections, but they are not known for having a wide variety of chocolates that can be used in baking, unlike many other candy companies. I suppose that you could try cutting up their buttercreams and stirring them into a cake, if you really wanted to give it a go. A better alternative would be to try using ... Read More »
