Due to the intense Louisiana heat, ChezSlaughter Chocolate is taking a break. However, to tide you over until the fall, we have a series of ‘Summer Chocolate Secrets’ that we’ll share over the next few weeks. Here’s a secret about chocolate chips.
Although American chocolate often gets a bad rap from chocolate snobs, I’ve discovered that all American chocolate isn’t equal.
Chocolate secret #1 introduces you to a chocolate chip that is an American rival to the wonderful chocolate flavor found in my Belgian chocolate.
The secret chip? San Francisco’s Guittard Chocolate Company.
At recent chocolate parties, I’ve had guests compare Nestle’s chocolate chips with Guittard chips. Guittard wins hands down every time due to its richer, more chocolatey flavor.
If you want to rev up the flavor of your cookies and other desserts, you can find Guittard chocolate chips at Whole Foods, Albertson’s and even on Amazon.com here.
Try them in your cookies, fudge or enjoy them right out of the bag.
