Do you have to use sweet, bitter, or semi-bitter chocolate for bonbons?
I have seen many recipes in which they made chocolate bonbons, some of them used semi-bitter chocolate, and others, melting chocolates, which is the traditional sweet chocolate. To know when to use one of the two chocolates is very easy and straightforward, the secret is to know what the filling will be for our chocolates.
The answer to the question is very simple if, for the filling, you are going to use something sweet since the ideal would be to use semi-bitter chocolate, so you avoid that the chocolate bonbons exceed the limit of the candy. In the end, it only produces Can a feeling of harassment.
On the other hand, if the filling is going to be, for example, nuts, almonds, peanuts, or other ingredients that do not handle sweet, the ideal would be to use sweet chocolate to complement the filling and achieve a balance in its flavor.
You know, from strawberries to nuts, marshmallows, and another amount of ingredients that you can use as a filling in the recipe, and if you want, you can use them all, that depends on you. So go ahead and prepare these delicious chocolate bonbons and surprise your family. Let's cook.Español
