The Best Baking Chocolate
The Real Simple test kitchen made 48 pans of brownies, 192 cookies, and eight cakes (sweet job, eh?) to find the best bars, chips, and cocoa powders on the market.
Best Semisweet Bar
Hershey’s Semi-Sweet Baking Bar
Dark but not too dark, this rich bar is incredibly versatile, with a deep chocolate flavor that’s well suited to puddings and double-chocolate cookies.
To buy: $2 for 4 ounces, at supermarkets.
