The Process

Step 5

Tempering


Raw chocolate contains crystalized cocoa butter of varying shapes and sizes, making the chocolate brittle and dusty. Store-bought chocolate gets its sheen and signature snap from the tempering process, which heats the chocolate to a critical temperature and, thus, re-crystalizes the cocoa butter to a uniform size and shape. The result is simply beautiful chocolate. It’s during this part of the chocolate-making process when we pour our chocolate into molds and add special ingredients to our bars, such as our Sea Salt Chocolate Bars and our Pink Peppercorn Chocolate bars.
