Picture this .... you decide to do something special for your family one afternoon and make a dessert they all love. Halfway through the recipe, you realize you do not have any chocolate baking squares!
Here is a identical and cheaper substitute ..... it also eliminates extra ingredients in your pantry.
For each square, mix together 3 tablespoons of cocoa with 2 teaspoons of shortening.
First take a small saucepan and using low heat melt the shortening. After the shortening is melted whisk in the cocoa until smooth. Cool slightly and use as directed in the recipe. If you need two or three squares, simply double or triple the recipe. Quick and easy!
Viola, the dessert will be baked and your family will be happy!
Remember to give your loved ones a hug too!
