Chocolate and cookies are a pairing with a long history. Martha Washington was known to serve her guests chocolate cakes, which were crisp rectangular cookies served with a cup of hot chocolate for dipping. Today we enjoy a wide variety of chocolate filled and covered cookies, but the classic chocolate chip cookie is a timeless favorite.
With American Heritage Historic Chocolate, you can put a historic twist on this classic cookie. A chopped chocolate block produces deliciously spiced chocolate chunks that can be substituted into any favorite cookie recipe that calls for chocolate chips or chocolate chunks. Use one roughly chopped chocolate block for every cup of chocolate chips your recipe calls for.
The American Heritage Historic Chocolate Block chops up easily into an irresistible addition to your cookies. The smaller pieces infuse the cookie dough with dark chocolate flavor, and the larger chunks leave pockets of rich chocolate seasoned with an 18th century spice blend.
