“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Chocolate „
We get through quite a few bars of this a month because I make fairy cakes and biscuits with my sisters, plus my 2 year old loves decorating plain digestives and chocolate is the best thing for that!!! I was happy when I brought a block last week because Tesco have put the price down from 60p to 50p for a 300g block and that's brill value because that's a lot of chocolate and when it has been melted it goes a long way.
I wouldn't suggest you eat this chocolate in pieces like you would a bar of Dairy Milk or anything like that, it's not even actual chocolate and is just really sugar and fat flavoured with cocoa powder. I have never tried a piece of this on it's own because it doesn't smell all that much like chocolate and I know I deffo wouldn't like the taste of it.
It melts quick and easily, you can nuke it or do it in a saucepan with a bowl on the top. It's the same however you melt it so I use the microwave for quickness, it only takes a minute or so and all you have to do to help it on it's way is give the chocolate a stir once or twice.
We've used this for LOADS of different things now and everything has come out brill. It's easy to spread on top of cakes and biscuits and you can also melt it down and use the chocolate to make cornflake cakes, I haven't done that because I like using proper chocolate when I make stuff like that but on the wrapper it shows 3 yummy cornflake cakes so it must work ok.
The chocolate isn't the best quality in the world but it's fine on cakes and stuff like that. It's sweet and the only thing missing from it is that this cake covering isn't creamy tasting or feeling at all, the actual milk chocolate flavour is good though and it doesn't taste cheap or anything like that and has always gone proper nice with the cakes and biscuits that I've used this chocolate with.
Another thing you can do with it is smash the block into small pieces and use them instead of chocolate chips, I did that once when I forgot to buy chocolate chips for some cookies and they came out fine.
