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

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!

Oh thank you everyone! I am going to try and make some goodies this evening. DH just informed me he wants his favorite tomorrow night(Bracciole). So I am making some Valentine Desserts to go along with it.

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.
