parve chocolate chips or baking chocolate

koshergirl Nov 17, 2007 05:31 PM

I'm having some visitors next week that don't eat OU-D products ( even if it's not actually dairy but just made on the same equipment) can anyone recommends their favorite brand ?

Thanks in advance...

      Trader Joes semi-sweet chocolate chips, good, inexpensive and pareve. I've tried a lot and I like these especially and I buy a lot.

          I agree too. We use the Trader Joes (Van Houten) as well. Excellent!

        President's Choice chocolate chips excellent and are pareve. I know they are made in Canada but I think they sell their products at some grocery chains in the U.S.

          you could use the scharffen ebrger bar and cut pieces of chocolate and use it in your baking

          ShopRite chocolate chips are parve. They are delicious.

            after going through this post, and seeing mention of the trader joe's chips, i tried em for my thanksgiving chocolate pecan pie, and they are the best, no question

              We love the Wal-Mart branded chocolate chips. I think they were dairy for a while but are back to parve. OU.

                thanks everyone. I actually went to trader Joes and they are pretty awesome.

                  I use Scharffen Berger chocolate for things like a flourless chocolate cake, where chocolate is the main ingredient. For things like that, the best chocolate makes a huge difference. In other things, I can't see spending the money. I love the Trader Joes Chocolate.
