What am I supposed to do with the other half.....

I have a fudge recipie that calls for 1 1/2 pkg of bakers chocolate. So I bought two, but what am I supposed to do witht he other 1/2? I dont want to waste it. Can I cut it up and use like chocolate chips in cookies? What else?

YUM! I love dark chocolate! I'd probably just eat it lol You can use it in cookies, melt it then dip fruit/pretzels/nuts/ect in it-lay on wax paper and let sit in fridge for a while to harden it, you can do just about anything with it that you do with reg chocolate-if you like dark chocolate that is


eta-my favorite thing to do with it is make pistachio bark

Re: What am I supposed to do with the other half.....

make truffles!

chop it up finely and put it in a bowl
heat up some cream on the stove (if you have 4oz of bakers chocolate left, probably about 3oz of cream or a little less).
put the hot cream in the bowl with the chocolate, cover it and let it sit for 10 mins or so
whisk it together, add a splash of vanilla & pinch of salt
pour it into a small baking dish and refrigerate for a couple hours
scoop out a teaspoon at a time and roll into balls (helps to cover your hands with cocoa powder for this step!)
refrigerate for another 20 mins or so and enjoy!

a lot of steps, but sooo good!

Baker's chocolate isn't sweet...you can't just cut it up and put it in cookies. If it's a chocolate bar that's sweetened, then yes. Baker's chocolate lasts, so you can save it until you need it next year to make more fudge.
...or make some brownies!!!

Well, unsweetened baker's chocolate isn't sweet. But I have some semi-sweet in my cupboard that was supposed to be for fudge and now it has mysteriously been dwindling away to where I don't have enough for my recipe!

I did accidentally eat unsweetened chocolate once.
