Ohh the hullabaloo around homemade chocolate was so huge that I got caught up and made a batch for a little girl’s 1st Birthday Dessert table. Dessert tables are so much fun. They have bite sized dessert portions and look delectable. I made strawberry flavoured chocolates with butterscotch filling.
Morde strawberry compound came in handy for the punk pink colour that we needed. However this compound is little tricky to work with. The usual tempering temperatures for white chocolate do not work for this. I used the seeding method to temper it. Also I made it on probably one of the hottest day at Mumbai. Phew what an ordeal.
Points to remember:
1. Melt the 50% chocolate and use the rest of the 50% for seeding.
2. Keep a simmering pot handy too use.
3. Use oil on a tissue to smear in the cavities of the chocolate mould.
4. In case you life in high humidity places or places with high summer temperatures, work in air conditioning.
