No matter what dish or drink you prepare, guests are in for a treat with these dark chocolate coating wafers!

Usage Tips:
- Ideal temperature for coating is between 120 and 150 degrees Fahrenheit
- Chill your products 10-15 minutes in the fridge before serving so the glossy finish can set

    I would highly recommend this product. I have worked with this chocolate for years and would never change. The quality and taste is amazing. Great price.

    Best chocolate to work with.

    I’m an at-home baker and wanted to experiment in chocolate molds and dips. Messing up a batch of tempered chocolate is wasteful for a novice in a non-commercial setting. So, I love that these don’t require that process in order to turn out beautiful and delicious treats!

    I think these are delicious. I use them in a number of recipes in our bakeries. I think that these go great with pretty much anything.

    Ghiradelli Wafers make the best homemade chocolates. Creamy without the waxy or oily texture. Easy to work with and doesn't start to harden quickly. The most important part is the candy is delicious.

    These ghirardelli dark chocolate wafers are excellent for melting to make holiday spoons with! The spoon mold is available online.

    This is 5 star chocolate, with a name like Ghirardelli how can you go wrong? They melt up perfect, and make a nice addition to any bakers pantry.

    The dark chocolate is easy to work with and doesn't need to be tempered. It melts great without having to add anything to it for dipping.

    Perfect for my dipped cheesecake squares.

    Chocolate did not meet expectations. I have used this product before, purchased in a box store and that is why I looked online for it. I expected the same results, but this product was thicker and harder to work with than store bought product. Will not be ordering again.

    I bought this chocolate to cover my alfajores (cookie sandwiches) and it works well, not as good as I expected, but the hot weather here in Florida is not good for any chocolate, in my opinion dark chocolate is better than the white one.

    I previously bought this at a warehouse club, S... C... . But here I don't pay for membership. I have since bought larger sizes since this stores well in a cool and dark spot. It is so easy to work with that you will be happy to gift or sell your finished product. With Webstaurant behind it you have nothing to lose, but you wil be back for more.l

    These are delicious. The best dark chocolate I've ever had, although I'm far from a purist. I like them because they have quite a high sugar content; even though they have less milk (making them "dark"), they don't taste bitter at all and are quite sweet. It's an interesting flavor profile because it tastes more sophisticated than the milk but it's just as sweet. In any case, don't make the mistake of thinking "dark" means semisweet or bittersweet. It's not the case with this chocolate.

    Dark chocolate wafers (round) with bittersweet chocolate chunks (the rectangles) and melted milk chocolate. You can see that this "dark" chocolate is not as dark as the bittersweet chocolate.

    This is one of my favorite dipping chocolates I have found. It is easy to melt and dries perfectly when dipping truffles. I will definitely buy again.

    Ghirardelli is my go-to chocolate for dipped Oreo cookies, strawberries, and pretzels. This chocolate is smooth, richly flavored, and looks beautiful on my molded Oreos.

    Ghiradelli Dipped Mini Oreo Cookies

    This is my absolute favorite chocolate for dipping macaroons, cookies,biscotti, and anything you can imagine. It melts beautifully and sets up perfectly without having to worry about tempering. Ghirardelli is a great American company that makes delicious chocolate.

    Love these Ghiradelli dark chocolate coating wafers. They are easy to melt then pour into molds or dip candies, cookies, marshmallows, or whatever you want to coat in delicious chocolate. I have been using them for about 4 years and they have never let me down. The shine is amazing when utilizing polycarbonate molds. Try them and you will be dipping everything you can get your hands on.
