Chocolate Baking Essentials

Dandelion Chocolate

This curated Chocolate Baking Essentials collection highlights a trio of cacao-derived ingredients for baking with three surprisingly different textures from crunchy roasted cocoa nibs, to snappy finished 70% single-origin chocolate, to smooth-melting chef's ground chocolate.

  • Chef's Ground Chocolate Our pastry kitchen prefers this format for fast and easy melting, ideal for hot chocolate, cakes, pies, and creams that call for melted chocolate.
  • 70% Large Chips Each bag contains enough chips to make two batches of Dandelion Chocolate’s own Chocolate Chip Cookies with a handful left over for nibbling.
  • Cocoa Nibs Use nibs like nuts—in cookies, salads, breads, confections—anywhere you want to add a bit of crunch.
Ingredients & Allergens

All of our single-origin chocolate is made with just cocoa beans and sugar; no added cocoa butter, lecithin, or vanila.

Nibs are made with just cocoa beans

All products were made in an allergy-free facility.

Chocolate Baking Essentials

Conveniently stock your pantry with three key ingredients from three different origins, all celebrating chocolate

LARGE CHIPS

COSTA ESMERALDAS, EDUCADOR
2018 Harvest, Batch 2, 70%
tasting notes:
fudge brownies, fresh milk, and cherry

Our Large Chips are fully tempered with a snappy, smooth, shiny finish — perfect for baking and making confections, from brownies, ultimate chocolate chip cookies, and magic cookie bars.

CHEF'S CHOCOLATE

CAMINO VERDE, ECUADOR
2019 Harvest, Batch 3, 70%
tasting notes:
fudge, brown sugar, and nuts

Our Chef's Chocolate melts more evenly than chips or chopped-up bars. A workhorse in our pastry kitchen, lending its fudgy, nutty flavor profile to our hot chocolates, cakes, pies, and custards.

COCOA NIBS

KOKOA KAMILI, TANZANIA
2018 Harvest, Batch 1
tasting notes:
roasted nut and citrus

The holy grail of a bean-to-bar pastry kitchen, they are the purest, most direct expression of a cocoa bean’s flavor in all its delicious complexity. Use them to sprinkle on cakes or roll into morning buns.
