White Chocolate - Lindt Piccoli (35% cocoa butter fat) I have to drive 45 minutes to get it, but I can get a 2.5kg bag of it for $37.96. I vaccum pack and freeze it. Have never had a problem with it.
- I can also get the green and blacks white chocolate, but it is much more expensive to buy, so not very economical for me.
Dark Chocolate - Lindt Bittersweet Piccoli (58 %) Again I have to drive 45 minutes to get it, the 2.5kg bag is $28.29.
- I also like the Callebaut bittersweet callets ( 60 % ). I can get it at the bulk barn which is only about 20 minutes away from my house. They sell the callets by the pound, so I can get as much as I want.
Milk Chocolate - Defininety the Lindt milk chocolate. Although I usually do not buy milk chocolate for baking very often.
Unsweetened - I haven’t been able to find any good quality unsweetened chocolate in bulk in my area. All I can find is the small Lindt 99% cocoa bars and of course the unsweetened bakers chocolate at the grocery store, which I prefer
not to use. So I have been avoiding any recipes that call for unsweetened chocolate.
Cocoa Powder - I am not sure what the brand is, but it is sold at the bulk barn as well. It is called Ruddy Red and it is a very very dark red/brown color. It is 22/24%. It seems to work quite well with all the recipes I have used it for and it does not have a bitter taste.
