I’ve never met chocolate I didn’t like. I mean, it’s chocolate. How bad can it be?
But I definitely prefer dark chocolate over any other type
The darker the better
Bring it. I can handle it.
Some people saw that dark chocolate is bitter. I would say that it lacks overt sweetness (and boy, do I have a sweettooth) but I wouldn’t call dark chocolate bitter, per se.
It’s just not sweet. But it’s dark, smooth, rich, and just melts in your mouth.
The Ghirardelli was perfect. I liked both the 72% and the 86%. The 86% being less sweet than the 72% but both were smooth
and made me want to open a bottle of red wine and blow off the rest of the day and lovely.
I am not a fan of salt in any way, shape, or form, so I gifted the sea salt soiree chocolate bars to Scott and Skylar who happily took them off my hands.
She was excited about it!
Thanks, Ghirarhelli. This was a rough assignment but somebody had to do it.
I know you could use the Ghirardelli bars in recipes in place of chocolate chips (but I’d prefer to just eat them plain and savor them on their own)
If you want to make something dark & chocolatey, may I suggest
Raw Vegan Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies (GF, you can bake them in the oven, dehydrate them, or just eat the raw cookie dough)
Dark Chocolate Coconut Snowballs (vegan, GF, no-bake, freezer friendly)
Coconut oil, coconut flakes, maple syrup, and dark cocoa powder may not look pretty but I can assure you it tastes pretty
The richest, best brownie recipe I’ve ever made. And I am really picky about brownies.
Easy, Gluten Free & Vegan-adaptable. And dark.

And my White Chocolate Recipes
I know white chocolate isn’t “really” chocolate, but it is to me
What kind of chocolate do you like? Dark? How dark? Milk? White?
I love dark chocolate and yes, I like it very dark. It’s not bitter to me. It’s just not sweet.
I am not a fan of milk. At all. I would eat it on a desert island but I wouldn’t go in search of it otherwise.
White is not “real” chocolate, I realize, but I love it regardless. The uber sweet quality will always give it a place in my heart. These bars are possibly my fave dessert in recent memory.
I don’t like flavored chocolate other than possibly mint-flavored
But fruit-flavored, i.e. raspberry truffles or orange-infused bars of chocolate, is a 100% no-way for me! Just cluttering up the beauty.
I don’t like nuts in chocolate as a general rule
I do like the combos of:
peanut butter + chocolate (such as Nutella & Peanut Butter Graham Bars with Chocolate Frosting – No Bake)
caramel + chocolate (such as homemade vegan, GF Chocolate “Turtles” – No Bake)
marshmallow + chocolate (such as Deep Dish Double Chocolate Golden Grahams Smores Bars – Vegan & GF options)
Ahhhh, so many ways to enjoy chocolate, so little time.
How do you like your chocolate?
