Whitakers chocolate

who uses this brand for dipping truffles, also what type of chocolate do you use?? (muffen)

I do - I use the dark for peppermint truffles and the white and milk for a range of different flavours

I use Dark Ghana, because truffle fillings are usually so sweet, the dark chocolate counters the sugar.It also stays firm.

I prefer Dark ghana but m family all have different preferences sousually do a mixture with Dark Ghana, Milk and White - all Whittakers.Themixture looks good in bowls or in a box as a gift.

I use Lindt or Green & Blacks 70% or 85% - bit pricier unless you look for it on special.

Bump - anyone?

I think the OP should learn to spell.I have a battle with the spelling on my partner's behalf.He is also a Whittaker.Nice chocolate too.If I was making anything I'd use it

Yes it melts very well - just melt until there still a few lumps than stir to remove these.That prevents overheating which will ruin the consistency.

Oh sorry about the spelling!! (muffen)

hi ladies, so instead of buying the expensive choc drops etc, you just buy the whittakers and melt over a bowl of water the same. Im going to make some truffles, actually got to make a few, for xmas hampers, so just good old plain whittakers?

That's right - just break it into squares first and off you go. :-)

All your 'melting' chocolate is compound anyway, I try to avoid that, mostly oil and sugar, yucky.
