I am a certified chocolate lover. One food for the rest of my life? Give me chocolate and I’ll be a happy lady. I’ll take fancy Valrhona or plain old Hershey’s; it’s all good.
It does beg the question though – when should you use The Good Stuff? My rule of thumb is that when the chocolate is the star, you better be using the best you can find. Chocolate chip cookies? Toll House will do. These brownies? You best believe I used semisweet Guittard chocolate. Oh Guittard, you sweet devil, you.
