Expired chocolate: lost cause?

I was getting ready to post about what to do with an 8oz bar of bittersweet (62%) baking chocolate, but I checked the expiration date and it was (eek!) 9/07. My mom gave it to me. A while ago. Kinda forgot about it but just got in the mood to bake something for the holidays.

Should I just toss it? Or can I still use it to make something? If you don't think I'll die, what should I do with it?
