<p> <h1> Making chocolate at home </h1> </p>
<p> I always buy cooking chocolate from shops, and I have noticed that all of th
em have "hydrogenated vegetable oil" or their equivalents mentioned in the ingre
dient list.
Now, I'm not a big fan of using products that contain fully/partially hydrogena
ted vegetable oils, so I've long been on the look out for chocolates that do not
contain these ingredients. However, on searching, I haven't been able to find an
y with just a few basic ingredients. The ones that don't contain hydrogenated oi
ls
are too expensive because of the high cost of cocoa butter. Also, being in India
, where the climate is generally about 33°C - 36°C, manufacturers use Hydrogenat
ed
Vegetable Oils to keep the chocolate from melting at room temperature(which is w
hy "foreign" chocolates are generally deformed when we buy them in India).</p>
<p> <em> I have been experimenting, and have found that the following procedure
produces good quality bitter chocolate, which I enjoy eating.</em> </p>

<p> <h4> Ingredients </h4>


<pre> <i>
1 unit Melted Unsalted Butter
1 unit powdered/pulverised sugar(not Icing sugar), or to taste
3 units good quality cocoa powder(I use Cadbury or Hershey's), or to tas
te
</i> </pre> </p>

<p> <h4> Procedure </h4> </p>


<p> Melt the Butter, and add all the sugar to it.<br/>
Simmer the butter with the sugar for some time so that sugar is complete
ly melted in the butter and some of the water has vaporised.<br/>
Keep stirring with a thin wire whisk.<br/>
Remove from the heat.<br/>
Add the cocoa powder a little at a time(preferably in 4~5 batches), stir
ring all the time with a thin wire whisk, to ensure that no lumps form.<br/>
Add as much cocoa powder as is required(to taste) or to adjust the consi
stency of the mixture to be like a thick syrup, which can be poured
into molds when it is hot/warm.<br/>
You may optionally add vanilla extract for extra flavor. Add only about
1/4tsp for every 100g of butter(or 500g chocolate) or to taste.<br/>
Pour into molds and chill in a refrigerator for about 2 hrs. or till com
pletely solidified.<br/>
Eat directly or use as cooking chocolate or make a hot cup of hot chocol
ate. Enjoy! </p>
<hr/><hr/>

<p> <b> Note </b> If you want to add more cocoa powder or you find that you are
not getting a shiny pourable liquid, you may want to try adding an emulsifier
such as "soya lecithin" or "egg yolk" in a proportionate amount, a little at a
time, stirring constantly till you get a liquid with a smooth consistency. </p>
<hr/><hr/>

<p> <blockquote>
You can make chocolate from cocoa powder. There are companies that make their ch
ocolate like that. Here are some things to remember though...<br/>
- When the cocoa butter and cocoa powder are separated their have not been refin
ed down to the correct partical size....so you might get a grainy chocolate.<br/
>
- NEVER EVER add water or a water based product to Chocolate! If you do it will
either turn it into a ganache or just seize up the chocolate.<br/>
If you are going to make a chocolate bar then you will need cocoa powder, cocoa
butter, and sugar. If you want to add anything else it needs
to be water free! Unless you are adding a dired fruit or something...the little
water in that will be fine.<br/>
- You will have to temper the chocolate(like said earlier)<br/>
- If you want to add flavors to the chocolate then use "essential oils". Those a
re the flavors from the flavor source and have no water. They are fat based. <br
/>
- You can certainly make this chocolate bar but it will not come out as good as
a company might make it because you do not have a refiner(partical size)
or a conche(heating and agitating machine to develop flavors) but you can certai
nly have fun with it and make a chocolate you will enjoy... </blockquote> </p>
