Baking With Chocolate

Almost everyone knows that there is a big difference in taste between milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. We Americans love our milk chocolate when it comes to candy, but when it comes to gourmet baking, dark chocolate is always the preferred choice. But did you know that there are also variations in dark chocolate, which influence the intensity of its favor and eating experience?

Facts about Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate can range in flavor from semi-sweet -– which is about 64% chocolate liquor, to bittersweet, which can be as much as 85-90% liquor! The main ingredients are the liquor and cocoa butter extracted from the cocoa bean, and sugar; it almost never has milk added to it.
