You're a chocolate lover, but how well do you know your chocolate? I'll share with you some of the chocolate trivia I learned from Heavenly Chocolates' seminar, Chocolate Appreciation 101 last April 24 at Roces Avenue, Quezon City from Ms. Marga Manlapig, a chocovangelist and also a blogger.
Chocolate Trivia for Chocoholics
Chocnut is not considered as a chocolate.
Three Musketeers, Baby Ruth and Snickers are not considered as chocolate bars. Only part of it is chocolate and it is mostly made of nougat.
Chocolates are made from beans of the cocoa fruit.
Several thousand years ago, chocolate is not really sweet, it is spicy.
White chocolate is not a chocolate. It is extracted fat from cocoa beans, more known today as cocoa butter.
How to Make a Ganache
Ms. Marla taught to us how to make a ganache for fondue. After that, she added a little vodka powder and rolled it to cocoa powder to make a ganache to be used to make truffles.
Now, the greatest part is the chocolate tasting. We explored some of Heavenly Chocolates' best chocolates. We got to taste chocolate drinks, nama, nama sachi, and of course, the truffles. I really love the nama sachi for its chocolatey minty taste for only P350 per box.
