    chocolate great Ghirardelli milk loved baking Creamy wafers caramel brothers

    We only use Ghirardelli chocolate at our store. Their milk chocolate is creamy and smooth and awesome for dipping things like strawberries and gourmet caramel apples.

    Chocolate dipped strawberry bouquet.

    I loved Ghirardelli anything but this chocolate flavor is excellent. We used a lot of chocolate since we were baking cookies for my brothers wedding. Great for melting

    The 5 lb. Stanford Milk Chocolate Ghiradelli wafers are repackaged in a facility into 5 lb. bags, boxed, and shipped. I was a little surprised to find out that I did not receive the pre-packaged Ghiradelli-sealed bags, but purchasing in bulk through Webstaurantstore is much more cost effective than I would have paid at my local grocer. The bag the wafers are in is tied up, so you may need a zipper bag or closeable container to store these in if not using right away. The quality, as usual, was fantastic and fresh. This was actually my first time using the milk chocolate wafers, though I have used both dark and white chocolate previously. These wafers are easy to melt in the microwave. I used them to drizzle on popcorn and they worked well. I also made a ganache with them, which was thinner than an equivalent amount of another brand and the taste was not as rich (though I typically use semi-sweet squares).

    I'm so glad that I tried this chocolate. I was a bit apprehensive because I really don't care that much for the Ghirardelli bars in the store. These wafers, however, are a different story. They have a well-rounded chocolate flavor that I find excellent for blending. I rarely use any chocolate without blending and these wafers are perfect for making the type of chocolate that's good for candy bars.

    Scrumptious Fudge Topping Made With Ghirardelli Sanford

    For what you get, this is honestly a great price. We have ordered this bag many times for all of our bakeries and we go through it surprisingly quick.

    Everyone loves my chocolate covered pretzels, potato chips, ritz crackers and so much more. Since I switched to Ghirardelli I enjoy making these for everyone again. Its no longer a chore.

    The taste of these are amazing! They are great for melting and using to make molded spoons that can go into hot chocolate for an awesome gift or product for sale.

    from 4K9 & Company Posted on

    These chocolate wafers are excellent for various confections and melt easily (seen here making molded spoons for hot chocolate).

    Ghirardelli is a leading chocolate producer and these wafers are no different. We melted them down to make candy pops and they were excellent! There are a variety of uses for these chips and I would not prefer anyone to go with another brand.

    Chocolate wafers

    Creamy milk chocolate taste..great for ganache and adding to my frosting. I wish this chocolate could be used in molds like the white and dark chocolate.

    Ghirardelli 5 lb Stanford milk chocolate wafers excellent for making chocolate cookies and cream ice cream. Can also be utilized for making the best milkshakes and your clients will be impressed as you're utilizing a reputable brand such as Ghirardelli

    This chocolate is delicious and should be melted in a nice sautier pan to bring out the flavors

    If you,want real chocolate, whether for nibbling, cooking, baking or candy making-this is it. Not too dark but more full bodied than most milk chocolates. This is a real steal for such high quality, smooth and slow melting candy. I will always buy this for all my ,ilk chocolate needs. It's a winner.

    Yummy creamy sweet milk chocolate. Melts like a dream and hardens up well again too. I like wafers because you don't have to cut up as much chocolate (or any, depending on what you're doing) saving you time and effort.

    Melted milk chocolate to make a thin layer between a tart crust and pastry cream. Once it cooled and hardened I added the pastry cream on top, it worked perfectly! Delicious!

    Ghirardeli is the best hands down when it comes to taste for melting chocolate but if using for something that has to have the chocolate set it doesn't seem to set very well

    from A Dip Into Paradise Posted on

    Great chocolate wafers for coating, baking, icing or anywhere else you would need to add real chocolate. I also love to eat these out of the box straight.

    The Ghirardelli Stanford Milk Chocolate Coating Wafers have a great rich milk chocolate flavor. They are easy to melt which makes them perfect for dipping, drizzling and decorating. They are my go to for chocolate covered strawberries and pretzels.

    Great texture and flavor

    I don't quite know the difference between a "Stanford" milk chocoalte and any other, butit works as intended. It melts well, makes a great ganache for cakes, and tastes great.

    This chocolate is perfect for melting and dipping. This chocolate is delicious and its a great combination for my truffle cones. My clients love it!

    from Sweets By Fernanda Posted on

    This chocolate had a great taste! It arrived in a simple plastic bag but none was melted. The only drawback is it to longer than cheaper chocolate to cool in the molds.

    from Savory Plates Posted on

    Another great Ghirardelli product! I use the chocolate wafers for drizzling and covering cookies. It is pretty easy to work with and melts well. I had a few issues with getting the chocolate to harden and set, but the chocolate itself is delicious.

    Decorated chocolate covered cookies made with delicious chocolate wafers!
