    I am making truffles and it calls for 1/2 pound of each bittersweet and semisweet.

    Well theres 16oz. in a pound,so you divide 16 by 2 and that gives you 8.8oz. in a half of a pound.

    I always thought if you divide 16 by 2 you get 8. Am I mistaken? Judy

    Hi Maddymoo,
    They are right--8 oz = 1/2 lb chocolate....

    If you are using chocolate chips,1 cup = 6 oz bag.
    This is a convenient conversion because most recipes list the quantity of chips in ounces. I buy a super big bag at Sam's club so I have to measure them out.

    Beancounter.....I never tried the chocolate chips from Sams. Are they as good as Hersheys? I bet the price is better!

    Donna40--

    The chocolate chips that I get at Sam's are in the same Yellow bag that you see in the grocery -- except it is the 60 oz size. (Nestle's I think)...The price is much better.

    But you do have to measure out your quantity, and as I mentioned before--one cup = a 6 oz small bag.
