Flavoring Dark And Milk Chocolate?

by Madalena
(Questa, NM, USA)

Hello again! Christmas season is upon us again and I can't wait to start making candy!


This year I would like to try some different recipes so...I would like to know how to go about flavoring Dark and Milk Chocolate.

I find Dark Chocolate is easiest to work with and everyone prefers it. I'm thinking maybe Mint, Cherry, and Orange flavors for maybe some truffles or something. Not sure exactly yet.
Thank you!






Hi Madalena,

I can't wait to see what you come up with this year! :)

When flavoring dark and milk chocolate, you can use flavor oils if you want to literally flavor the chocolate.

Of course, you can just fill molded chocolates with cherry, orange, or mint fillings if you prefer. You can get the cream fillings at Candyland Crafts.

In fact, they also carry the flavor oils. They are my favorite place for chocolate making supplies.


Looking forward to seeing this year's Christmas candy photos!

Blessings,
Angie

Flavoring chocolate
by: Madalena

I was thinking of making solid pieces of chocolate but I want them flavored. I will probablydo some filled ones as well, so I'll look into the cream filling you suggested! I actually bought candy molds from them now for Halloween! My other question was..Do I use the Loranne (I think that's the name, I forget) kind of oil flavoring to flavor the chocolate?
Thank you!

LorAnn Flavor Oils
by: Angie

Flavored chocolate will be very nice - filled or solid.

Yes, you can LorAnn Flavor Oils for chocolate making if you already have them on hand. Just be sure that you have the oils that are good for use in chocolate. I know LorAnn carries a variety of oils, but not sure they are all suitable to be mixed in chocolate.

If you don't already have oils, the flavor oils at Candyland Crafts are very nice, too.

Glad to hear you got some Halloween molds. Are we going to get to see some photos? :)

LorAnn Oils
by: Madalena

I have the LorAnn oils. Are there different types of LorAnn oils? Some for hard candy making and some for flavoring chocolate? I got a little confused.

Thanks,
Madalena

LorAnn Flavor Oils
by: Angie

I read on their site that most of the LorAnn flavor oils can be used in chocolate. If you want to be doubly sure before using, you can probably give them a call. The number may even be on the bottle somewhere. Let us know what you find out. :)

Flavoring Chocolate
by: Mikes

Hi,

I make alot of Chocolate Candy around the Holidays. There are many Flavorings that you can use. I use different Liquors ( alcoholic ) in my Chocolates. Since it is Alcohol, a little goes a long way such as 1 Tablespoon for 1 batch of Chocolate. I make truffles so instead of just using one kind, I like to mix it up so Friends as well as Family can have a treat tasting what I have made instead of having just one flavor. The combinations are endless, just don't over-do it when adding your Liquors and make sure that it palate friendly. You can get small quanities of these at your favorite Liquor Store so you don't have to put out alot of money and they will last if you don't use it all at one time.

I Sincerely hope that this helps you out.

Mike
