Has anyone tried that Choxie chocolate they sell at Target? I'm nuts about Target, but I'm afriad to be let down by the chocolate so I haven't bought it yet. It is kinda cute/pretty, though...

Send a message via Yahoo to ChefJune
are you talking about for eating or for baking?

For baking, I like Peter's Burgundy. I found it in a blind tasting and it beat out all (and I DO mean ALL) the more famous, FAR more expensive brands!

For eating, I'm partial to the candies made by Maison du Chocolat. I'm lucky because the only store outside of Paris they have is in New York. Truly the top stuff is make by Bernachon in Lyon, France.... If you ever go there, be sure to get some!

I would have to say either Dove or Godiva. I personally think that Hersey's has changed up their recipe because it their milk chocolate is very bitter now. Maybe my taste buds are changing

Hey if you guys ever get a chance you will have to try some chocolates from around the world. Many of the ones you all like best are the lower quality to mid quality(nothing wrong with that of course) and there are a lot of high quality out there to try that you would be amazed by if you are a chocolate person...try them out if you get a chance...
