I use Ghiradelli bars from Sam's Club. They come in double chocolate and white and both are excellent. They are soft enough to bite into, but dry hard enough to keep the cookies fresh. I'm sure they are a seasonal item, so I have stocked up enough to last me for awhile.

I have used the choc and vanilla bark, also I am using the Ghiradelie(sp) candy dipping choc. I really like it the best!

Thanks ladies all those kinds of chocolate sound great. My only problem is that I wanted to start working on the Oreos tonight and all I have is Callebaut dark snaps and Ghiradelli smi-sweet choc. chips. Which one would be best???

I've never used the Callebaut, but I have used Ghiradelli & Nestle chips. They just usually take longer to harden. And you can use paramount crystals or paraffin or crisco in the chocolate to help thin it. The paraffin helps give it a thin crunchy coat.

O.k. I decided to use my Callenbaut chocolate. I just made a bunch and it's a very beautiful dark chocolate when melted and if you taste it, it tastes like Oreo, believe it or not. I guess thats a good match. I think I will be using that chocolate again!!! Yum!!! thumbs_up.gif Thanks again for your other suggestions!

Where do you get Callenbaut chocolate? I would like to have something that is a little higher quality for some occasions.

Callebaut chocolate is fabulous! The son of the Callebauts is actually located in Canada, so they sell it everywhere here and have shops too. Fabulous chocolate!
