How to Add Flavoring to Chocolate
Nothing is quite as satisfying to a sweet tooth as a bite into a creamy, delicious chocolate bar—except maybe a bite into a creamy, delicious flavored chocolate bar. There are so many flavor combinations that can upgrade your standard chocolate bar into something unique and heavenly. Check out this guide to learn how to add flavoring to chocolate.
Prepare to make the bar
As an avid chocolate maker, whether professional or hobbyist, you know how you like to make your chocolate bars. Start with your chocolate bar mold, and melt your pre-made chocolate—whether homemade or bought in wafer or droplet formats—down in the mold. This should be a very similar process to what you normally follow. For those new to the chocolate-making hobby or profession, a great way to start out is by using pre-made chocolate. You can buy this in multiple forms and simply melt it down to fill your chocolate bar mold.
Insert different flavorings
Decide on the flavor combination that you prefer before you experiment with the dosage. Using flavor extracts is ideal when you want to flavor chocolate. If you plan to use a single flavoring, use half a teaspoon at first, and then increase by a fourth of a teaspoon gradually for a more impactful flavor. If you plan to use multiple flavors, starting with half a teaspoon of each should work, and then, again, gradually increasing each flavor for a better balance should help find the right mix for you.
Bonus Tip: Here are some popular flavor combinations to try:
- Raspberry and champagne
- Caramel and peanut butter
- Coconut and pineapple
Set the flavored bar in the freezer
Once you have the right flavor combination and ratio for you, set the mold with the completed flavored chocolate in the freezer. Let this sit for about 15 minutes. This should be enough time for the chocolate to harden and be ready to eat or package. Once you’ve done this, you can enjoy the fruits of your labor and keep producing more delectably flavored chocolate.
