In the 1950's my grandmother made a Chocolate Macaroon cookie with four ingredients: egg whites,powdered sugar, coarse cracker crumbs, and 1 whole box of DOT chocolate. I have never been able to find DOT chocolate, who manufactured it, or the quantity in 1 whole box. Any ideas? All 21 of my cousins remember this cookie. Granny lived in Cleveland, Ohio so perhaps local?

I just poked around a bit and I found several references to Baker's DOT chocolate, but they don't have it on their product website. Maybe you could contact them directly for information?

Oh, I'm so excited! I found it for you! It's Baker's semisweet baking chocolate. Here it is on ebay:

You probably can't get it any more, but you could substitute the current Baker's semi-sweet chocolate (or any good semi-sweet chocolate).

What I really love about drbab's answer and the photo is that I just learned that "Baker's Chocolate" is made by a company apparently founded by someone named Walter Baker!! Who would have known? How interesting! Thanks for posting this. ;o)
