I have about 2 pounds of Hershey's milk chocolate santas (they were on sale for less than $1 a pound after Christmas). I would like to use it to make something fo a bake sale, but I am not sure what. I don't want to have to temper it, so I was thinking of some kind of cake, or ganache for a cake? The only ganache I have ever made was from the Death By Chocolate cookbook and it used semi sweet.
Our bake sale is for Valentine's Day. I'm thinking of taking pre-orders for mini cakes for this and wanted to offer a choice of a chocolate type cake and a WASC with buttercream.
My first thought was to use it to make shavings or curls for garnish.
You can make ganache with it, just throw in some unsweetened cocoa powder and whisk through. I use up xmas choc like that for my choc cake, I use it in my batter as well
