I am no chocolatier. I am no pastry chef. I am just a mom who spends a lot of the time in the kitchen experimenting and playing. I'm also a mom who is learning to let go of [some] of her perfectionist ways and say "that's good enough."
And so it was with this attempt at chocolate making. I did some reading up on it; how to temper it, all the technique involved. Bah, too many steps, too complicated."Let's just go melt some cocoa butter, throw in some cocoa powder and some sweetener and run with it," I thought.
