Where's the chocolate?

I'm confused, there is a sub-forum for brownies but none for chocolate?!? Am I alone in my opinion or should there be a special, very special, section for chocolate? Help people discover the joys of good chocolate, not just Hershey's... Discuss brands, methods, recipes, basic principles, etc. about chocolate? I would love to see everybody's input on this!

Lint. 70% chocolate.

'Nuff said. I hate milk chocolate, too sweet and clammy in the mouth. Love the slight bitterness of the 70%, I have tried 85% but that was a little too much for me.

Supposedly Lindt have a concept store in Sydney somewhere that sells a 99% bar.

I love dark chocolate, but 99%?!? What would you even do with that? My personal favorite brand is Callebaut and I prefer a nice dark 73%. My wife thinks anything more than about 40% is too dark... Weird.

Amcardon, since chocolate can fit in so many subforums depending on how your using it, it doesn' t have a forum of its own. If you want to discuss chocolate and chocolate only, you're welcome to place the thread where you did or in the candy subforum. Either should work and be noticed.

And I agree, chocolate is a wonderful thing to talk about and very special--and delicious!

Yep!! Please post all chocolate recipes!!

Milk chocolate! Yummy. I love the way it melts in my fingers.
I always let some melt so I can lick it off. Any one else think
melted chocolate is better then unmelted?

I like milk chocolate, especially Cadburry milk chocolate. It has a rich-dairy flavor that I just love. But I also love french silk chocolate, and Dove dark chocolate. I love the deep chocolate flavor and creamy texture. I like Hershey's, and Nestle's, and Mars chocolate, not to mention Brach's. I'm not a picky guy. But I have my favorites. See's Chocolates, out of Southern California are great, not so much for their chocolate (they use Ghiradelli) whitch is pretty good, but for the fillings inside.

Let's face it. I have a sweet tooth, and chocolate satisfies it in most of its various forms, even the waxy Easter candy chocolate. But I do know the distiction between fine chocolates and their lesser cousins. And even though isn't classified as the best of the best, I still love a good Cadbury Caramello as my all time favorite.
