How would you choose the best chocolate for it?
After choosing the fruits and berries it’s time to select the best chocolate for it. Let’s admit it – there is nothing like chocolate when it comes to its unique flavor and texture. Although it is difficult to pin down exactly when chocolate was first invented, this sweet delight has always been cherished in some form or another since the start of human civilization.
We can’t deny the fact that using high quality chocolates while making dipped fruits and berries can make the taste more mouth-watering. High quality chocolates have a wide range of flavors, from spicy to fruity to floral, in a full range of cocoa solid levels from milky 32% to extra dark 70% to unsweetened 100%.
- High-quality chocolate should contain cocoa or cocoa butter. If cocoa is not the primary ingredient, the chocolate is likely high in sugar.
- The more chocolate is protected from light and moisture, the longer its shelf life will be.
- A chocolate of about 60% cocoa is good for snacking, while a chocolate with at least 80% cocoa will have a strong, bitter flavor better suited for baking.
- Make sure it’s a good quality tempered chocolate, so it will not get melted easily
