11 lbs of Callebaut Chocolate!

I am the proud owner of 11lbs of Callebaut chocolate. (Milk chocolate though, not semi sweet). What the heck am I going to do with it?

I'm thinking a crapload of truffles for Christmas gifts etc. I need more suggestions though.

Help please?

Make chocolate covered almonds and/or peanuts:
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler, then stir in roasted almonds or peanuts. Spread over foil-lined (or parchment-lined) baking sheets, and chill until chocolate is set. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Chop up and use in chocolate chip cookies or other types of cookies (can be in addition to the semi-sweet chips/chunks). Use in muffins, cakes, brownies. Make S-mores or S'more bars.

Some recipes using milk chocolate:

My brother in law had it and couldn't think what to do with it. He saw my eyes light up and gave it to me. So...they are getting a pile of truffles back as thanks but holy moly thats a LOT of chocolate.

merstar, thanks! Those are fabulous ideas and links. I'm going to go make almond bark today. I suspect there will be a LOT of really yummy hot chocolate in our house this winter too.

You are not allowed to put two food bandaids together as it negates the effects of both. Come on bigdaddy, thats a major cooking faux pas!

If you have never had chocolate covered bacon then I will forgive your challenge.

You're very welcome. And if you find that you still have an excess of chocolate, just send some over here!

Sorry nope. Not going to do it. I'll believe you that its good but I still say two cooking bandaids can't be put together without repercussions.

merstar, I think if there are any "leftover" bits of chocolate my husband will happily finish them for me. He is already asking me when I'm opening the package!

I had a chocolate bar two years ago with bacon IN it. IN the chocolate bar! One word: AMAZING!!!

Do you know how to make ice cream Alix? All that chocolate would be good in some homemade ice cream and it will keep a lot longer than cookies or cakes.
