This weekend I made the chocolate cryptocurrencies with a filling of strawberry white chocolate. It was a challenge for me because I wanted to make them better than my Steemit chocolate.
It was really challenging working with chocolate because you make a lot of mess in the kitchen and you need to be quick. I really appreciate all chocolatiers over the world. Making chocolate isn't easy. After my second try, which is making these crypto chocolate, I still feel I can do it a bit better. But they always say: practice makes perfect and these crypto chocolate are definitely looking much better than the Steemit chocolate I made before.
If you are curious how they looked:
I think that the crypto chocolate looks much better than the Steemit chocolate I made in the past. The reason they look much better is because I use the right silicone mold for chocolate and because I tempered the chocolate to prevent the chocolate from crystallization. I am also happy I could make my own silicone mold for the crypto chocolate.
If you look at the chocolate, you see no crystals. (Crystals are white spots on chocolate.)
You are probably curious how I made them. So I will show you how I made these delicious cryptocurrency chocolate.
1 bar of white chocolate (100 gram)
Cream ( 30 gram)
Fresh strawberries (50 gram)
I took my food processor that also is included with metal discs for grating chocolate.
So I grated the dark chocolate. I prefer milk chocolate but I know that working with dark chocolate is easier because it gets solid quicker and chocolate looks much nicer using dark chocolate.
After the chocolate is grated I put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Then I stir it and put it again in the microwave for 20 seconds and stir it again. When I see the chocolate isn't melted totally I put it again in the microwave and stir it again.
I took my self made crypto silicone mold and filled the mold with the chocolate. I filled it till the end and shake it a bit to get rid of the air bubbles. I think I should shake it more because you still see some air bubbles. Then I put the silicone mold upside down to remove the chocolate and leaving only chocolate at the sides and the surface of the silicone mold. Then I put it in the refrigerator and let it chill for 5 minutes or longer.
I cut the strawberries In pieces and cooked them (low) until they are soft.
Here I grated the white chocolate. I used the wrong side of the metal grating disc, so the pieces are bigger. I never used these metal grating discs before. I melted the white chocolate for 30 seconds -1 minute and added the cream and the strawberry puree.
Then I put it in a plastic container, closed it and let it chill for 20 minutes in the fridge. Once it is chilled I take my food processor and use the dough mixers for mixing the strawberry white chocolate.
I take a zip lock bag, poured the mix inside and cut the end of the zip lock bag.
I filled the silicone mold holes with the filling.
With a spatula I removed all excess chocolate. (It still looks very messy as it is all new to me). Then I shake the silicone mold to get rid of air bubbles and let it chill in the fridge.
This is how it looks after it is chilled. So messy everything hahaha.
The chocolate came out easily out of the silicone mold! That was the moment I was worried about!
There are still some air bubbles visible which annoys me :-D. At least I know now what I can do better to improve.
I have to say that Ethereum and Dash look the best from all. But I only ate the Steem chocolate ;-).
