11lb block of dark chocolate?? HELP!

Hi! My husband and I received an usual wedding gift: a solid bar of dark chocolate weighing 11lbs. It is intense. We tried breaking some off with a knife but it is messy. Think of a slab of ice; shavings flying everywhere. I get the impression from what I could find on the internet that the block is for professionals who would need several pounds of chocolate at once. Do you have any advice? We have invited friends over to try and eat it, but Id rather be able to use it or break down without losing half of it. Vegan recipes appreciated as well!
