99p cake

Is it good chocolate?

Yes. For 17p it is exceedingly good value. I will be stocking up big time. Thanks for the heads up.

the chocolate is ok for eating but really very good for cooking with

Great for use in brownies

Unfortunately as a diabetic I don't often get to sample them

YYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS I've been waiting so long for this.

awesome!

I am going to get my years stock, and feel my boots

I always stock up as each type is on offer, great for the chocolate cheesecakes etc.
Especially the white chocolate....

Anyone know if this contains milk..

Anyone know if this contains milk..



just happen to have a pack on my desk (yes the dark chocolate). It contains traces of nuts and soya, not suitable for milk allergy sufferers. There's no milk on the ingredient list though.

Great price but seems to be only 50% cocoa so maybe not quite up to cooking cholate standards.

I always add this to Chilli con carne.

Same here, 4 or 5 chunks gives a nice, rich, smooth sauce.

50% cocoa is more than adequate for cooking chocolate, snobs insist otherwise. My mrs uses this stuff all the time in her cakes - bargain !

Excellent been waiting for this. I use it in my choc brownies. Thanks. Let us no when white choc goes on offer because that's really tasty too! I stocked up on the milk choc offer they had on about a month ago!

I'd guess they put that warning as the factory will also make milk chocolate products and they need to cover themselves. Same on crisp packets for instance.

I love lidls jd grosse 81% dark chocolate. Just over a quid for 125g so good value even compared to asda.

Only 50% cocoa that's no good. Not going to bother

Why such snobbery? It's good chocolate at an unbeatable price. If quality really matters that much to you, then you shouldn't even be considering something that costs 17 pence.

Would really appreciate it if you could share your tried and trusted recipes - and othe recipes for choc-related stuff that these bars could be used for. Thanks

Never tried that - may have to give it a whirl...8)

oooh dark chocolate, first time I've seen this on offer. It's normally white, plain and hazelnut. Will be stacking up

heat added! people saying about quality etc, its 17p!!

I've expanded on a recipe I found on the internet by one of the "famous" chefs (I think) for white chocolate cheesecake, using cheese from Aldi or Lidl rather than top price Philly. etc. I always am complimented on my cheesecakes and a synch to make. Freeze quite well too.
Ingredients
• 300g Philadelphia cream cheese, (Aldi or Lidl’s own equally as good and usually cheaper)
• 250g mascarpone cheese, (or just double Philly, or experiment with stronger cheeses, I have used White Stilton with apricot and Wensleydale with cranberries, and even tried a smoked cheese but wasn’t to everyone’s taste)
• 300ml double cream
• 300g white chocolate bar. (I find Aldi or Lidl chocolate as good as baking chocolate)
• 500g biscuits e.g. digestives (this will make a thick base, 300g will probably do, ginger biscuits and choc chip cookies also work well.)
• 250g of butter (remember butter is half the weight of the amount of biscuit that you decide on)
• Fruit for topping e.g. strawberries, or use chocolate buttons white or milk chocolate or just lightly dust with cocoa.
• Vanilla essence (not essential)
• 2 to 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder for base (not essential)
• 75g Granulated sugar.
Method
1. Crush the biscuits until completely ground. Add butter (either in food processor or gently heat on hob) until desired crumbly consistency.
2. Add the biscuit mixture to a large spring form cake tin and pat till flat. Leave to set in the fridge for approximately 30 minutes. (Alternatively bake in oven for 10 minutes at 150 degrees c, then allow to cool, gets a more crunchy base, in my opinion)
3. Begin melting the chocolate in a glass bowl over a small pan of hot water on a low heat. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. (If using proper cheese I would melt this too).
4. Put double cream into a bowl or jug and add the 75g sugar and vanilla if required, whisk until thick with stiff peaks.
5. Mix the Philadelphia and mascarpone cheese together with a whisk; hand or electric. Add double cream and whisk again. Finally, add melted chocolate to the mixture and whisk. The mixture may seem slightly 'curdled' just continue whisking.
6. Spoon the mixture over the cooled and set biscuit base. Return to the fridge to cool for as long as possible, until the topping is set. You can put chocolate buttons or even shaved chocolate on the top at this point, but leave fruit until after it has been set properly. As most of you know I have frozen it at this point.
7. Finally decorate with fruit or other topping.

Obviously you don't have to use the white chocolate you can use milk, dark, hazlenut or more expensive like toblerone or Chocolate orange. A double shot of Baileys also adds a nice touch too :o)

Lidl also sells Schogetten brand chocolate Milk, Dark and I think an almond one
the milk and dark are really nice and a lot smoother than the Fin Carr`e one.
Its normally about 70p a bar but I wait till its on a weekend special half price and then stock up.
The pieces, squares are separate from each other and are on a cardboard strip covered in foil.
Give it a go and I promise you it will be a firm favorite.
