Basically, chocolate comes in three flavours, dark chocolate, usually 70% cacao liquor or more; milk chocolate, quite possibly the most popular version and white chocolate. As explained the other day, you can separate the cacao or chocolate liquor into to cacao butter and cocoa powder. Once separated, you can sugar and milk to the cocoa butter and that’s you get white chocolate. Add milk and sugar to the cacao liquor and you get milk chocolate. Reduce the amount of sugar and milk or eliminate the milk altogether and your get dark bitter chocolate. What’s Your Favourite?
