Being the chocolate fan that I am , I received a 10lb box of Ghirardelli sweet ground white chocolate drink mix for the cooler months ahead....( I love dark ) now what to do ?

Does anyone have any cake ideas or sweet dishes I could some of this in ?

TEN POUNDS?!?!?!?!? :eek: :lol:

What's in it besides white chocolate, can you tell from the label?

Since white chocolate is just cocoa butter with sugar and flavoring (and maybe milk), you can't, of course, substitute it for regular cocoa. But you knew that. ;)

Dont quite savvy ground white chocolate drink mix. Is it something you could make ito truffles and give as christmas prezzies?
If you dont like it yourself, maybe you could give it to someone who would appreciate it.
What about a chocolate party... You provide the white and guests bring anything but.

If you dont get any great ideas here, maybe you could donate it to a charity fundraiser.

Ten POUNDS !!!!:suprise:
You know I like to be generous myself but theres a limit. If it had of been dark chocolate, I would have not said a word and sipped my happy heart away but ten pounds .....of white.....

You know what ? This is not even a gift I can recycle. I get chocolate all the time, from chilli chocolate to Godiva, and from all over....

Nothing beats this. I was trying to figure out a recipe with mousse. Could it work ? What is your opinion ?

Egg whites, Heavy cream, White chocolate powder, whip like mad until it peaks. That would be a nice white mousse. Otherwise, add it to a very dark cocoa powder 50/50 and make a super cocoa buttery hot chocolate.

I laugh everytime I think about this.....

But Ray, today I am going to do just that , whip it into submission, make a mousse.

3 litres of heavy cream doing nothing, well it just found a home . Trial and Error .

I will let you know how it goes.

Thanks

Once you've gotten it just right, yo could use it in a desert presentation. Prepare it a little loose and serve it on top of red and black raspberries as if it were creme fraiche.
