Guittard sent me two types of their products: baking chocolate in 24 square pallets and samples of their newer 3.5oz bars. Over the course of the year I used the pallets and have done special sacramental reviews with them. Today I can declare that Guittard is the Best Chocolate of 2010 here on The Chocolate Cult.
HERE. It melted wonderfully but I think that the lower cacao content allowed so many of the other ingredients through that it just didn't make my list of most chocolaty cakes but my friend thought it was OK if a bit dry.
HERE. Think of using something as fine as Guittard here as making high class treats for yourself and your family. These were so wonderful that I'd say they are even worthy of being given as gifts or used for a birthday.
Guittard. You can read the review that was mentioned in HERE. I actually preferred ganache for the center of these treats not just because it didn't squish out as you ate it but it was so tasty and so easy to make -- a bit of heavy cream, a minute in the microwave, stir and wait.
Here you see the undipped, the white almond bark dipped and the 70% dipped sponge cookies. Guess which was my favorite?
All of that makes it easy for your Chocolate Priestess to declare Guittard to be the Best of 2010 here on The Chocolate Cult. Sadly, very sadly, I don't see these pallets for sale on their website. I see the bars I was sent and a lot of cocoa but not these particular pallets of chocolate. However, I strongly recommend that you look into Guittard and check back here for a review of their 3.5oz bars very soon.
