What do you do when you are able to purchase $2.49 Ghiradelli Luxe Milk Chocolate bars for around .20 cents a piece? Buy lots.
Break some up and make cookies! I made 4 batches of Ghiradelli chocolate chunk cookies.
Due to the perfect combination of deals at Walgreens, and having the right coupons, I snagged 40 bars of milk/dark combination chocolate bars. (Not all of them posed for the picture.)
The math went like this:
The grand total for 40 bars was around $7.50, this was for a total of 120 ounces of chocolate. 120 ounces could be translated into 10 bags of chocolate chips, 12 ounces each. This would be like paying .75 cents each for premium bags of chocolate chips. Pretty good deal, I'd say.
Now, the most fun thing about it all, is that I made a double batch of cookies just for the staff at my Walgreens because they always welcome my crazy coupon habit! (CVS needs a treat soon as well, because they are great also.)
The majority of these chocolate bars will go in the freezer. I used 6 bars total today for 4 batches of cookies.
