Chocolate Bars vs. Chocolate Chips, Which Is Better?
As the name of this recipe suggests, chocolates are the star of this decadent dessert. However, you’re not the only one who has gone to the supermarket and stared at the wide selection of chocolates and pondered over which one is best for your baking recipes. We’re here to settle that debate, or at least make your decision a little easier.
Most solid forms of chocolate are available as both chocolate bars and chocolate chips. While they’re both definitely chocolate, there’s still a slight difference. Chocolate chips have less cacao butter and have added stabilisers to help maintain their shape. While the difference may not be apparent if you use them in things like brownies, the texture will make itself known in things like sauces and candy. IN fact, it can greatly alter your recipe. This is why if your recipe calls for baking chocolate, it’s best to use chocolate bars.
How To Melt Chocolate Without Burning It
This recipe is relatively easy if you follow the instructions. The trickiest part of this is definitely melting your chocolate down to make the ganache filling. Well don't worry, because we’re here to share the secret to not burning your chocolate!
The key thing to do is to remove it from heat right before it’s completely melted, but to still keep stirring it until it is. When melting your chocolate on a stovetop—which is what we do in this recipe—make sure that your saucepan is directly over the flame and your chocolate is evenly spread over the bottom surface. You should also make sure that the flame is on low heat. Then, remove your pan from heat before the chocolate is completely melted and stir. In under a minute, your chocolate will be silky and smooth. Our recipe also uses our BamNut Milk Barista, which helps prevent the chocolate from burning as well.
How To Make Sure Your Ganache Filling Is Smooth
What distinguishes a mediocre chocolate tart from a great one is its filling. To be more exact, it’s how smooth your filling is.
What Is A Ganache?
Before we get into the tips and tricks of always getting a smooth and silky ganache, let’s briefly understand what a ganache is. Ganache is a velvety emulsion made by combining chocolate and heavy cream. It changes state according to its temperature—when warm, it’s velvety and liquid, when chilled, its consistency is firm and almost chewy. This makes ganache an extremely versatile ingredient due to its variety of textures. It could be used as cake frosting, whipped mousse or even a tart filling like in our recipe.
Ratio Is Important
The ratio of chocolate to cream is extremely important and determines the consistency of the ganache. For a firm and smooth texture in the case of truffles, use a ratio of two parts chocolate to one part cream. For a liquidy or soft ganache being used for something like a mousse, use one part chocolate, two parts cream. And use equal parts chocolate and cream for a medium-consistency ganache that’s perfect for glazing or filling cakes and pastries. It’s important that for this step, you measure your cream and chocolate by weight, instead of volume.
Cream, Then Chocolate
The order of which your cream and chocolate goes in the saucepan is of utmost importance. You should always add your chopped or chunked chocolate to your warm cream in order to get a smooth and creamy ganache. Make sure to stir with a spatula for a bubble-free end result that will look perfect as it sits in your tart shell.
You may have seen some ganache recipes asking you to add hot cream to a bowl of your chopped chocolate and stirring until smooth. While this may work occasionally, this method can cause your ganache to split, causing you to see tiny specks of chocolate in the ganache. If you insist on adding hot cream to your chocolate, make sure to leave it undisturbed for about a minute to let the chocolate melt a bit before gently stirring. This will make sure that there aren’t any tiny specks visible in your finished ganache mixture.p
