Cocoa Bean Method (Advanced)

  • Cocoa beans ( 1 lb or 0.5 kg is a good amount to start with)

    • You can also buy cocoa nibs and skip Steps 1 and 2
  • Cocoa butter
  • Nonfat cocoa powder
  • Sugar
  • Lecithin

STEPS ARE AS FOLLOWS :-

Place the water in a pot and heat it. Keep it below boiling
Combine the cocoa powder and softened butter in a bowl. Cream together until you have a smooth paste. Use a fork, food processor, or even an immersion blender to eliminate lumps.
Add the cocoa powder mix to the hot water and stir. Allow the temperature to rise back up. Again, it should be hot but not boiling.

  • Pour the hot mixture into a bowl.
Sift the powdered sugar in a separate bowl. Eliminate as many clumps as you can. Stir the sugar mixture into the hot cocoa mix.

  • Add milk. Blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture in thin layers across the bottoms of various containers. Since the chocolate will take the shape of the container, a rectangular casserole dish will work well for a rectangular bar.

Harden overnight in the refrigerator or freezer.
