Thread: Chocolate Stock Up?

Chocolate Stock Up?
So, I've got quite a bit stocked up but I'm working on the chocolate supply. I buy the small Nestle bags on sale but I'm wondering what's better to go with?
I'm not too fussy, although I do love Nestle brand. I was wondering the best way to buy the chocolate in bulk and best storage, etc. I love to bake but these never seem to go on sale. Is it better to buy the blocks and cut it up yourself?

You can keep it in the freezer pretty much forever. And if it thaws it won't go bad, even if it melts into a solid block you can still use it for something.Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.
If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

I buy it in whatever form is cheapest per pound. Here, that's usually a large block, which I cut up myself (which takes 20 seconds, it's not worth paying more for choc. chips / small pieces). I store it in the cupboard and have never had a problem with it melting or going bad. I stockpile white, milk, and dark chocolate (mostly dark), and unsweetened cocoa powder.

I hit a sale FOREVER ago on unsweetened baking blocks ( .50 each). I froze them and they are fine.

I calculate the cost per ounce. I also have to figure in my gr'dau's peanut allergy. So many foods with peanuts or processed in facility w/peanuts. Buy it ahead, during the year, & freeze it in ziplocs.
