What can I use it for? Got 3 bars of dark cooking chocolate (my mum got me them going cheap)
But I don't really know what to use it for? Apart from melting it as a topping for cakes 🤔🤔

Plenty of cake recipes use melted chocolate. You can chop it up for chocolate chip cookies.

Or you can just eat it.

Or melt it onto bananas. I forgot that one.
Onto baked bananas, even better.

Baked bananas omg used to love those! A little foil parcel in the oven, amazing I need to do this . Also chopping it for cookies is good, will it go all melty though? Whereas choc chips usually stay whole. Hmmm maybe the meltiness will be nice

This is so yummy but takes about 10-15 minors extra to cook www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/694633/double-chocolate-loaf-cake

Cooking chocolate isn't chocolate, it's chocolate flavoured covering. For truffles, cake pops, etc.

Brownies usually use melted chocolate. And if you're making Rocky Road it has to be Nigellas Rocky Road Crunch Bars - easy but bloomin delicious!!!

Use as choc chips in cookies?

Or slice a croissant / brioche, put a row of cooking chocolate in the middle and stick it in a panini press or similar. Delicious.

melt with a table spoon of milk for a super smooth sauce for ice cream.

is it a very high cocoa one? 70% or higher and you can put a square in savory sauce (gravy, bolognese, chilli) for depth of flavour.
