Simple but Delicious Chocolate Recipie


Making chocolate is actually much easier than it looks.  It’s similar to making soup and can be a beginner’s recipe.  Don’t forget that you can always customize your chocolate by adding ingredients such as almonds, nuts, marshmallows, raisins, cranberries, wafers, and caramel.  For gourmet chocolate recipes, I recommend looking up
 “Gourmet Chocolate Recipes from Hank Friedman” on the internet for a delicious recipe.

Cocoa Powder Method (Beginner)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (220g) cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup (170g) butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100g) sugar
  • 2/3 cup (150ml) milk, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup (30g) powdered sugar (sugar will work top)
  • 1 cup (235ml) water
  • saucepan

Steps:

  1. Boil the water in a saucepan.
  2. Combine the cocoa powder and butter in a bowl  and mix until smooth (eliminate lumps)
  3. Add the mixture above into the saucepan of boiling water and stir.
  4. Lower the heat of the boiling water so that the mixture is hot but not boiling
  5. Add the powdered sugar and sugar into the saucepan and stir. (*Sift the sugar if it has clumps in it.)
  6. Turn off the heat of the saucepan
  7. Add the milk into the saucepan and stir until smooth.
  8. Let the chocolate mixture cool for thirty minutes, and then pour the mixture into a plastic or other type of bendable mold. (*Almost any plastic container can work as a plastic mold)

This recipie is a modification of the chocolate recipe of the article “How to Make Chocolate” on Wikipedia with added improvements.
