National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day Faqs

Q. What does it mean to temper chocolate?
A. Tempering is a process that improves the quality of a substance. In the case of Chocolate, it improves its resiliency and shine. It’s recommended to use tempered Chocolate when dipping or making candy.
Q. How do I temper Chocolate?
A. There are a few different methods for tempering Chocolate. One is to heat Chocolate slowly in a microwave in 30-second intervals. When the Chocolate starts to melt, you are getting close. Stop heating the Chocolate when it is soft but holds some of its shapes. When you stir the Chocolate, it should become smooth and lose its shape. Seeding chocolate is another method for tempering Chocolate. Separate 1/3 of the Chocolate and chop it into pea-sized bits. This is the seed chocolate. Melt the remaining 2/3 of the Chocolate in a double boiler. The temperature you bring the Chocolate to will depend on the type of Chocolate.
