There's no doubt that chocolate is a favorite dessert flavor, and these Ghirardelli 5 lb. queen dark chocolate wafers can enhance your dessert menu in many different ways! Thanks to their petite, round wafer shape, they're much easier to melt and use than block chocolate. Use them to make a smooth chocolate glaze or ganache. They're also great for coating your customers' favorite snack foods, like pretzels, nuts, and fruits. Whether you're baking cakes and cookies or preparing a decadent fondue, these versatile queen dark chocolate wafers are up for the task! They can even be used to add bold, dark chocolate flavor to frozen drinks, chocolate ice cream, and hot chocolate bases.

Customers will recognize and trust the Ghirardelli name when they see it in your cafe, coffee shop, ice cream parlor, or restaurant. Ghirardelli began with a young Italian chocolatier in the early 1800s and is now a brand widely known for its rich flavors. This sense of quality is the result of Ghirardelli's commitment to control all steps of the chocolate-making process, from roasting the cocoa beans, to refining the product for smoothness and well-balanced flavor. In addition, the company understands that sustainable sourcing and knowing the origins of the cocoa beans speaks to the quality of the finished product. No matter what dish or drink you prepare, guests are in for a treat with these queen dark chocolate wafers!

    these have a deep, intense chocolate flavor for lots of different cooking applications. they are really chocolate-y and being able to buy good quality chocolate in bulk like this is very convenient.
    this stuff is perfect for melting. it is creamy and smooth and coats very nicely. the flavor is great and it pairs very nicely with sea salt
    Have ordered several of these dark chocolate wafers and these are by for the best! The flavor is amazing and quality is great. Shipping is with cold packs to keep fresh and cool in summertime.
    Great quality chocolate, not too sweet. I've used it in all sorts of baked goods, as well as for truffles and molded chocolates. Note that this is 'pure' chocolate, with cocoa butter- it does need to be tempered to keep a perfect smooth texture.
    This is the best dark chocolate I have ever used. It melts nice and smooth and sets up perfectly. Plus my clients LOVE this taste of this chocolate as well!
    These Ghirardelli Queen Dark Chocolate Wafers are absolutely amazing I use them to make my super rich fudge topping for my cakes and ice cream.
    Great chocolate! Good quality coverture, not candy coating. Has cocoa butter and requires tempering for dipping items like strawberries or pretzels. Great for baking, ganache, and glazes.
    I'm not a big chocolate person (especially dark chocolate) so I was a little shocked by how much I liked the taste of these Queen Dark Wafers, they're delicious! They melt smooth and make beautiful ganache and delicious buttercream. Will definitely order again!
    Excellent quality chocolate - I love having a large supply on hand. I've used these for anything requiring chocolate pieces or melted chocolate - added them into baked goods, made ganache, tempered to make chocolate decorations and have eaten them as is.
    We used this chocolate for our chocolate dipped strawberries and got great feedback! They were delicious and we would definitely buy again anytime we need melting chocolate!
    this is a really dark, really intense chocolate, but in the best possible way. it makes everything i make with it super delicious with amazing depth of flavor. it's perfect for baking or just as a melting/coating chocolate. really can't go wrong with it.
    These Ghirardelli Dark queen wafers are awesome to bake and make chocolate covered desserts. I really love how it covers my truffles and the taste is fabulous.
    These have a very unique flavor which is slightly darker than the Dark Chocolate coating wafers also sold on this site. These melt great and store well.
    Dark Ghiradelli chocolate wafers is the way to go. It’s so Yummy! Great dipping chocolate. I have bought the dark chocolate and white chocolate for many years, but recently found it more affordable through webstraunt.com
    I run a very small bakery/dessert business and have experimented with a lot of different chocolates. I always end up using the Ghirardelli bars found in grocery stores or World Market. This gets expensive, so I was so happy to find that I could order the wafers in bulk. These wafers are the perfect combination of flavors -- bittersweet is too bitter and semi sweet is too sweet. With the Queen Dark, I no longer have to mix two chocolates for one recipe. And the wafers are sooooo much easier to use than chopping the bars. They arrived in perfect condition with ice packs to help keep them from melting during shipping.
    If you're looking for a darker dark chocolate this is for you. We love Ghirardelli products and it is the only kind of chocolate we use in our store.
    We now only use Ghirardelli chocolate in all of our bakeries and restaurants. It has become a staple in our kitchens. These are great to have!
    Ghiradelli Queen Dark (and Stanford Milk) chocolates are superior products. Both of these melt with ease and are easy to temper for molded chocolates. They are also great to use in ganache recipes!
    This is some really good Chocolate. I cover my hazelnuts with it. All of my chefs love the new product I've created.
    This is a really fantastic 5 pounds of queen dark chocolate and has a really rich dark chocolate flavor when they shipped it to me they put ice pack around it so it wouldn't melt that was fantastic
    Ghirardelli 5 lb Queen Dark Chocolate Wafers are perfect for creating sweet chocolate milkshakes and smoothies. Can create the best pecan pie by having this reputable brand of Ghirardelli
    This is dark rich high cocoa content chocolate. A real chocolate lovers dream. Easy to melt and add to your favorite chocolate dishes or to eat as is.
    This chocolate is perfect for making my chocolate desserts and sauces. I make a great ganache also with this wafer. I love it and will be buying more
    These wafers melt beautifully and have a lovely rich, dark chocolate flavor. The chocolate does not set up well for dipped cookies or macaroons. It remains soft but perhaps it was my melting method. Regardless, it will be a nice addition to many chocolate recipes.
