Stupid Chocolate Question

Juniper | Apr 3, 2007 05:27 PM

So I had the good fortune of spending almost a month in France recently. Of course, I simply couldn't return without a boatload of goodies, including chocolates from La Maison du Chocolat. Out of curiosity about what unsweetened chocolate is like, I purchased a bar of 100% pure cocoa. And after finding out what unsweetened chocolate is like, I've decided it's inedible as is. LOL.

So not really knowing what to do with the remainder of the bar (about 75 grams-worth), I'm turning to you my fellow hounds for some guidance. Can I use this just like one would use unsweetened baking chocolate? Is there a difference between baking chocolate and confectionary chocolate?

Thanks in advance for your sage advice!
