Every baker needs the right tools. Yours is chocolate! Enjoy HERSHEY’S Chocolate every which way with these baking chocolate recipes. The mildness of baking chocolate makes it ideal for balancing out the sweetness of cakes, pies and other baked goods.

5 HERSHEY’S Baking Chocolate Recipes

Baking chocolate is chocolate you actually bake with! Regular chocolate can also be used for this purpose, but the difference is that baking chocolate is either unsweetened or semi-sweet. Since your dessert recipe already has sugar, you don’t need to get the sweetness from the chocolate. So HERSHEY’S Baking Chocolate brings all the chocolate flavor to the table. Here are five of our favorite recipes using baking chocolate:
