- Shiny and glossy when hard
- Even colouring as the colour and shine will be evenly distributed throughout the chocolate
- A crisp hardness that snaps when broken
- Clean and consistent shrinkage making it easier to remove from the moulds
CHOCOLATE TEMPERING WITH THE MINI MELTINCHOC
- Set the maximum temperature on the Mini Meltinchoc and melt the 70% of chocolate, stirring frequently.
- When chocolate is completely melted and has reached a temperature of 40-45°C, lower the thermostat of the Mini Meltinchoc to 30°C and add remaining 30% of chocolate at room temperature.
- Stir to mix and cool down to the "tempering" temperature recommended by the chocolate manufacturer (tempering temperature is approximately 31°C for dark chocolate, 30°C for milk chocolate and 29°C for white chocolate).
- This technique is called "tempering for insemination" and it is useful to stabilise the crystals of cocoa butter.
For a precise tempering, it is recommended to measure the temperature with a digital thermometer for chocolate.
Well tempered chocolate is easily released from the moulds and looks inviting, bright and crisp. On the contrary if the chocolate is not tempered, it is difficult to release from the mould and will have a marble like finish.
