As I was browsing the Halloween candy at Big Lots today, most of the chocolate (i.e. Hersheys, Milky Way, etc were $1.78 for the 11-12 oz size bag. Then I noticed they had also tagged the 22 oz bags of 1 kind with the same price tags. I bought enough to use in Christmas gift baskets (I'll just remove the orange ones). Careful looking pays off!
Take all the pure chocolate candy and break it up into little pieces. Put into a zip-type bag. Many recipes call for a cup to a cup and a half of chocolate morsels (at $1.75 to $2.50 per bag). Use these in place of the morsels.
