What kind of chocolate is used? Do you grind it yourself or does it come ground?

Toni ground chocolate comes ready in a can. Try Ghirardelli Sweet Ground Chocolate and Cocoa, it is the best! It is basically sweetened cocoa but the product is perfect for baking or chocolate beverages because it has real chocolate for that intense rich chocolate flavor. You could also make your own at home. 4 cups sugar 1/2 vanilla bean, split crosswise 1 1/2 pounds high-quality semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped 8 ounces milk chocolate, coarsely chopped 2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder, preferably Dutch process In food processor, process semisweet chocolate and milk chocolate until finely ground. Then add scraped vanilla and sugar (or vanilla sugar)and add cocoa powder to ground chocolate and mix well. Save in airtight, moisture free containers.
