How to Make a Chocolate Emulsion
Virtually every recipe I have written for hot chocolate, chocolate ice cream, or chocolate sauce involves making a chocolate emulsion. An emulsion is simply a mixture of two liquids that don’t normally mix, such as oil and water. Chocolate can be a bit tricky to work with, and consistently getting a smooth, glossy final product is not always so easy. In fact, I struggled with it before going off to France for the Valrhona chocolate course. There, I learned a very simple trick that’s shown in this video – adding warm liquid to warm chocolate in small parts, mixing all the time, until you have a very professional looking product.
Anyway, here’s the video! I hope it’s helpful. Here are recipes where it might come in handy:
- Hot Chocolate
- Winter Hot Chocolate
- Aztec Hot Chocolate
- Chocolate Sauce
- Hot Fudge Sauce
- Chocolate Whiskey Sauce
- Chocolate Ice Cream
- Chocolate Whiskey Ice Cream
