Good afternoon all! Just a query regarding making your own chocolate, I literally did the exact same process yesterday and it turned out great, however the batch today has ended up a disaster.
Let me explain my process:
1 cup cacao butter melted in a double boiler (I was very careful to make sure no water gets in) I then added 1/2 cup of honey, vanilla extract, pinch of salt, 1tsp soy lecithin powder, and 1 cup of cacao powder, and mixed in the double boiler.
The consistency is now very fatty, as opposed to silky and smooth which is what I got yesterday. The mixture isn’t consistent, it’s clumpy and then really thin liquid inside there too, which prevents it from all blending together smoothly.
I was pretty confident I got no water in, the only thing I can think of is maybe I cooked it at too high of a temp? Did I need to wait for the butter to cool before mixing the ingredients first?
Any suggestions appreciated!!
