    Oh Katy, there are sooooo many ways to consume that dough!!!! One of the best is place a chocolate mint candy on the top of a hot cookie and then eat it. Oh. Yum. The other day I made a batch of the dough and ground up a bag of peanut butter chips in it. Again, let me say, Oh. Yum. OOOOOORRRRR take two hot cookies out of the oven and sandwich a marshmallow in the middle. And yes, that's right. Oh. Yum.

    I don't know but for some reason I can't perfect the taste if I'm using dark chocolate that's why I just to cacao whenever I'm baking cakes.

    Vote for Valhrona!

    I splurged at the beginning of the year and bought Valhrona. I had only used Hershey's before, so this would be new to me. I made up the cookies on Smitten Kitchen that are called "Chocolate Wafers", and the cookies were deep, rich chocolate!

    The next time that I used Valhrona was in a cake recipe. I only used half of the chocolate it called for, (cocoa), and it was beyond anything that I had made before. I can't always afford Valhrona, but it was someone's (Mr. Picky's) birthday and he just loved it!

    I just bought three cans of Saxo cocoa that someone mentioned on here as being excellent. Found it at Woodman's. Reasonable. Can't wait to try it. Have never heard of Valhrona. Will look into it. --Katy

    Katy, the gal that writes the "Smitten Kitchen" blog is the one who mentioned it in her recipe for "Chocolate Wafers", which is a recipe that I think you will fall off your chair for, (we did!). I did a search on it and it is reported to be one of the cocoa's that "top" chefs use that are pastry chefs. Well, I had to buy it and try it. Not sorry that I did. It is a deep, luxurious cocoa. I want to save that for special and use Hershey, which I grew up on for regular cookies. I never knew much about all these different cocoas and have been getting a real edu-ma-cation!!!

    I originally used the black cocoa following Pam's recipe (part regular, part black) but at least to my taste buds there was a diminished overall chocolate flavor rather than a deeper one. The color was amazing though!
