A recent was the creation of some chocolate bars. However the request included “teach me how to do it”, and they have to look nice in the end.
Starting with standard chocolate bar moulds and – more or less – tempered white chocolate, we covered the moulds and spread some Oreo crumbs on it. Afterwards we tempered some milk chocolate and filled the chocolate bars up with it.
But after letting it cool down and removing the chocolate bars from the mould, we noticed that there was a small problem: the chocolate hadn’t been tempered properly and it became a bit grey.
Well these things happen. If it wasn’t a teaching session I would have melted the chocolate and started allover again, but in this case I went for plan B: cover it up.
I had some bronze food coloring powder and, using a brush, we applied the powder allover the chocolate bars.
That way the little mistakes where not that visible and the bars looked cool.
Now that we had the chocolate bars ready, they needed to be properly wrapped. The bars itself got wrapped in white coated paper and around that we added a printed sleeve with a customised text on it.
The result looked lovely and the presentee at first wouldn’t believe that it was homemade.
So I’d say, successful course.
