Chocolate and Melt

What Chocolate To Choose To Melt?

The main characteristic of chocolates suitable for melting is its high cocoa butter content. If you do not find special chocolate pastry to melt in some cases, it is better not to do experiments, which will surely end up in the garbage can. Don’t you think of using a cup of this delicacy because it has a lot of flour and it will thicken, most likely it will burn, it is perfect, for that, to take in a good bowl with some crispy churros?

And almost all milk chocolate types are usually very good, but they have little cocoa butter, so they are great in the snack sandwich, but nothing more.

The Most Common Types Of Chocolate On The Market Used For Cooking

  • Be careful with the knife that some chocolates are very hard and it is easy for the knife blade to slip, to settle the cutting board, it is better to be plastic and put it in a bowl that is suitable for heating. I usually use one of Ikea crystal, perfect to put later in the saucepan.
  • We put a saucepan to heat with water, more or less in half. Remember that we are going to put a bowl with weight, and it can overflow.
  • As soon as it is hot, we add it in the bowl, and when it begins to melt, we stir with a silicone spatula. Grab the bowl with a glove or dishcloth, but you will burn.
  • After about 5 minutes, it will melt completely. If you need it to remain melted for a long time, leave the bowl on the saucepan but turn off the heat.
