If you're looking to ruin any hope of obtaining your new year's resolution goals, I found just what the doctor ordered:
7 1/2 LBS of Baking Chocolate for $11.37 http://tr.im/bkchoco
I saw this on another forum and thought you guys might like to know about it. Hope to help someone make about 50 batches of chocolate chip cookies. Maybe we'll get a whole section of Mole How-Tos!
First, I think you're thinking of "chocolate coating" -- baking chocolate is unsweetened and rather dry and bitter. Second, unsweetened (i.e. baking chocolate) is used in lots of recipes -- classic fudge being the prime example. Less so now that good quality high-cocoa solids dark chocolates are available, but it still has a place where you want a chocolate flavor without the sugar, vanilla, etc. of prepared chocolate. In addition, it adds chocolate flavor without adding a lot of bulk that throws off the proportions of the other ingredients, which is why, for example, it's good for something like fudge.
