If you make cheescake;you can grate a 8oz portion and add to cheescake.
That's 1/2 pound gone. Nibble, send some to middie and others. Who does not like chocolate?

How about rolling out a sheet of puff pastry a bit; cut into smaller rectangles and on each place some shaved chocolate. Fold over and seal, then bake until golden; this should be close to some of the chocolate pastries that some places serve. By sealing and freezing; the chocolate should do very well for baking purposes; I am still working on 5 lbs. of Gherardelli semi-sweet that DH brought home some years ago. It is still good; just make sure to double seal it if you can.

Use it to make ganache.
Make Chocolate truffles.
Chocolate-dipped strawberries.
Bake a batch of peanut butter cookies (or your favorite cookie), and dip the baked cookies into melted chocolate.
Chocolate-covered raisins.
Chocolate-covered pretzels.
Get one of Jacque Torres' cookbooks and start teaching yourself advanced chocolatier work, like chocolate sculptures.

With this type of chocolate I can just melt it in a double broiler.... I don't have to add any cream or butter or anything do I?

Se non supporta il calore, vattene dalla cucina!
