Making Gourmet Chocolates Yourself

A few weeks ago I thought it would be a excellent thought to make some gourmet food for a party I was going to arrange. Well I place on my chefs hat and finished up making some truffles, and wow, my friends thought they were fantastic and really thought that they were gourmet chocolates that I had bought from a quality gourmet food store.

I want to point out that making gourmet chocolates for yourself is hard and will take a lot of time, but to be positive it does give you the opportunity to try out some recipes that you probably could not get from the local store.

The ingredients are the key to making fantastic gourmet chocolates:

Choosing and buying the ingredients of your gourmet chocolates is part of the fun. To start with I melted brilliant quality dark chocolate over a double boiler. Secondly I rolled some small balls from marzipan and covered them with chocolate. Finally I rolled the chocolate covered marzipan in ground almonds, I also rolled chocolate covered peanut butter in more chocolate and then gave them a covering of ground peanuts.

Making gourmet chocolates yourself will open up your creativity for sure, also making gourmet chocolates, will allow you to make many different sorts like, chocolate covered chili peppers, chocolate covered citrus peels, and a real wow, chocolate covered candied ginger.

Sharpen your sculpting talents when making gourmet chocolates:

A well loved TV chef had a recipe for a honey chocolate cake, which inspired me to make a honey marzipan truffle. Start by melting some very excellent quality chocolate over the double boiler, and add a small honey, this will make a nice glaze. Now get the marzipan and with a paring knife carve some simple shapes like flowers, bunnies or hearts then dip the shaped marzipan carefully into the chocolate and let the chocolate set on the marzipan. Then dust them with confectioner’s sugar. The glaze will be a small sticky, so the sugar will stick. This will make a fantastic gift for all occasions, and is an especially excellent thought for gourmet chocolates, because you can make the marzipan into any shape to suit the occasion, and end off by dusting them with the confectioner’s sugar.

A Fantastic gift for someone you care about:

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t like chocolate, so as gifts they are an brilliant choice to show someone you care. By making gourmet chocolates yourself, you can take your time, and make them look fantastic for that special person in your life. Food and wine followed by some gourmet chocolates will certainly score you some brownie points.

Gourmet chocolates are usually made by master chocolatiers, so be sure not to make something that looks bland and dull, it defeats the purpose of making them yourself. If your chocolates look uneven, with weird shapes, people won’t reckon you creative. So try not to embarrass yourself or your friends when presenting a plate of your homemade gourmet chocolates.
