Good chocolate when baking makes a difference!

Guittard Unsweetened Chocolate Baking Bar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sometimes the smallest changes can change the results of a recipe, especially when baking. Always try to use the highest quality ingredients for recipes that matter (i.e. in a brownie recipe, where chocolate is the main flavor). I almost didn’t purchase this because “the other baking bars” that I’ve used since I was a kid have worked just fine. Until…

Well, I can’t blame the chocolate brand that I used. I didn’t have any on hand and was making my famous Katharine Hepburn Brownies. I have read that you can substitute butter and cocoa for the baking bars, but to me, it wasn’t the right texture and I didn’t enjoy it nearly as much. I stopped making brownies after that. Then… the pandemic hit and we went over a year with no brownies and I threw in the towel, time to get some baking chocolate and make a splurge!

I was at Whole Foods, and this was the only brand they had. I believe it was $7.65 or something close to that. I put it back. My husband said JUST GET IT! I’m so glad I did. Turns out I only needed 2 oz. so one box will make three pans of brownies, so it’s not that bad at all and the result is over the top good!

Top it with Saltverk salt from Iceland before serving and WHHHHEW! This is onehelluva dessert! Find the updated recipe for Katharine Hepburn’s brownies HERE.

    1. I checked our Target and no luck… but I did get a few bars from Whole Foods on sale (around $5) – thanks for the tip! It seems like a lot of money but when you figure it makes three pans of brownies, it’s not bad at all, especially given the intense chocolate flavor. ❤️ We don’t have Kroger, but we do have Harris Teeter (who was bought a few years ago by Kroger) so I’ll have to check it out so I know next time I need it, which I hope isn’t soon, ha ha…
