Proper nice 70% dark stuff. Just the same as normal, innit?

Besides I've run out of Haribo and it's all I have in the cupboard

Will I get the squits? blush

You will be writhing in agony in puddles of squits.

70% cocoa squits though.

I pretty much always eat cooking chocolate. I don't do milk chocolate, I like mine dark. Why on earth would it give you the squits?

WoahNelly Thu 27-Jun-13 19:44:42

Nope, been there done that

KirjavaTheCat Thu 27-Jun-13 19:45:32

My mum always told me if I eat her cooking chocolate I'll get the squits. She lied to me?!

I never buy cooking chocolate, sainsburys basics is like 30p a bar. Cheaper and much nicer!

Indith Thu 27-Jun-13 19:51:52

Yes your mum lied! It is just chocolate! Cooking vs eating is just to do with what cocoa is used, sweetness etc.

If you get the squits this will prevent any choccie related weight issue so it's a win win!

It'll be fine, but I agree that supermarket cheap chocolate is the way forward for cooking/baking.

Sainsburys basics dark chocolate is delicious - far nicer than cooking chocolate

I always eat cooking chocolate - am opening some Tesco's now which is why te thread caught my eye.
What did you think happened if you ate a crispy cake?

StealthPolarBear Thu 27-Jun-13 20:07:58

are you sure you weren't trying to eat dog chocolate? I am a sel-confessed chocolate addict with no standards (happily eat cheap supermarket own cooking chocolate) but even I drew the line at that grin

Oh and just so you know, cooking chocolate is fine. The stuff they sell in huge slabs called cake topper is vile. I wouldn't top cakes with it.

Tesco finest cooking chocolate is nicer than cadbury's

StealthPolarBear Thu 27-Jun-13 20:09:11

I am a little obsessed blush

It's my favourite!! Has always been - even when I was a child.

treaclesoda Thu 27-Jun-13 20:12:36

for a horrific moment I thought you meant that despicable cake covering that describes itself as chocolate flavour cooking chocolate or something equally demonic. But if its just the chocolate that they sell in the baking aisle then eat away. You have my blessing.

Indith Thu 27-Jun-13 20:13:06

grin SPB Chuck some here would you?

raisah Thu 27-Jun-13 20:17:35

Sorry to say that your mum lied to you so that she could eat it all to herself!

thompson369 Thu 27-Jun-13 20:19:58

Many years ago I ate dog chocolate and lived to tell the tail....(sorry, pun was intended)

FacebookWanker Thu 27-Jun-13 20:20:12

I used to love it, but now it really hurts my stomach when I eat it...

TSSDNCOP Thu 27-Jun-13 20:20:55

That 30p dark chocolate in Sainsbo is the nuts!

I'd cook with it if I could get it as far as the saucepan. It's usually gone by the time I pull up outside grin

StealthPolarBear Thu 27-Jun-13 20:27:47

You wouldn't like it Indith, it's milk. However I still do have the bar you didn't eat the other day...fel free to come and get it as I'm not keen grin

Indith Thu 27-Jun-13 20:40:45

I would but dh is away, 1 and 2 are in bed and 3 is dangling off my nipples in a semi comatose state.

FredFredGeorge Thu 27-Jun-13 21:19:27

You get to eat it, and feel virtuous that you've conned the VAT man out of 20%!
