4 kg's of untemperable milk chocolate

Recommended Posts

I have just over 4 kg's of milk chocolate callets that has been stored wrong, got damp and therefore cannot be tempered, although it was destined for the christmas chocolate production. Any ideas for use?

Thanks

well, depends on how damp 'damp' is. if it's just thickened a tad, add 0.1% fluid lecithin to it and make ganache out of it.

Are you looking for a retail solution? 4 kg isn't that much, but you could grate it and package it as gourmet Belgian-style Hot Chocolate flakes, or make a ganache and package it with strawberries as gourmet chocolate dip.

Thanks, guys. The hot choc is a good idea, but it will have to stay an idea - I had another taste of the callets and they have an off-flavour, so - in the bin :sad:

      Has anyone used Valrhona Absolut Crystal neutral glaze particularly to thicken a coulis or to glaze a tart?  If so, how did you like it and is there another glaze you think worked as well but is less expensive or can be purchased in smaller quantities?

      We are new Chocolatiers 3 months in business and doing well. We are looking for mentors people who are in production and can help us grow in the right direction. We need to take some decisions to invest now before the holiday season and want to make sure we are doing the right moves. 
      If we need to pay for this service we don’t have a big budget but will try.  We will try to get help to avoid any mistakes and will take a loan for this investment. 
      Look forward to hear from you guys
      thks

      Hello, 
       
      I am new to this forum. It is nice to meet you all.
       
      For August I have 2 big custom chocolate jobs and would love to know if I can paint the molds with tempered cocoa butter weeks in advance and then shell, fill, cap, at the last minute?
      Will the paint hold and be shiny and beautiful? 
       
      Thanks in advance

      I've read some older threads on here about keeping your cocoa butter warm in a dehydrator. We picked up a NutriChef PKFD32 which was the closest we could find to a recommended one (2016/2018) and none of our bottles fit. Which had us ask--are people putting their bottles preset in here or are you using cups/transferring and cleaning your bottles over and over? Also if the PKFD32 isn't what we should be using, is there one generally people like now?
       
      We've grown up from cheap airbrushes to the Grex line and we're attempting to get much more serious about our airbrush techniques. It's been long enough. Any thoughts, tips, tricks, or considerations are greatly appreciated.
