Does white and dark chocolate make milk chocolate?
Milk chocolate contains more milk and dairy fat than dark chocolate, giving it a creamier texture, less bitter flavor and lighter brown color. White chocolate, which is white in color, doesn't contain cocoa solids like dark and milk chocolates do, but does have cocoa butter, milk and sugar in it.
How do you melt white chocolate?
Place your chopped white chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl. Put the uncovered bowl into the microwave and heat for 20 seconds. Stir the chocolate well and heat for additional increments of 20 seconds until the chocolate is nearly melted, stirring after each interval.
How do you temper chocolate?
Grate or chop the desired amount of chocolate. Place two-thirds of the chocolate in the top pan of a double boiler. Heat over hot but not boiling water, stirring constantly, until chocolate reaches 110°–115°F. Place the top pan of the double boiler on a towel.
