    Confections! What did we make? (2017 – )

    Hi - can anyone recommend a good book about chocolate and making bonbons etc - sort of a bible type reference - looking to improve my skills and taking a course is not an option due to my location. Is this a good starting point - it is pretty expensive but cheaper than a course. TIA Fine Chocolates: Gold Jean-Pierre Wybauw, photography Serdar Tanyeli

    Confections! What did we make? (2017 – )

    So I visited with my sister this past weekend and made some chocolates with my nieces - salted caramel and peanut butter, solid chocolate lotus and coconut cream. This difference in the red heart shaped one is one is backed with white. Practicing for valentines this year. I want to offer a 5 pack of flavours - i was thinking baileys, red hot cinnamon, salted caramel, hazelnut praline and ??? any suggestions?

    Molded Bonbon Shine Tips

    I polish my molds with cotton makeup remover pads and some isopropyl alcohol. Tap your molds when filled to release air bubbles. Be aggressive banging is ok. Make sure your chocolate is tempered accurately. Try some colored cocoa butter. Have fun and enjoy. All mistakes taste great. I dabble at home.

    Marble tempering

    Hi all - learning so much from everyone in the forum - thanks for your sharing of knowledge - it's the most positive website iv'e come across for sharing - so my question is how big a marble should I look for to table temper 1-2 lbs of chocolate at a time. I'm thinking a 2'x3' piece? Is there any difference between marble/granite/quartz or do they all do the job Tying to find someone local doing a kitchen reno I can get a piece from. TIA

    How do they do that? (the bonbon thread)

    What do you use to get the triangle shape? or is this a secret? I am an aspiring hobby chocolate hobbiest.

    Hi All

    Hello everyone - I am new here. Live in Pemberton, BC and just found this site and it's amazing - I have learned so much - thanks to all those with the wisdom for sharing.
