Sometimes having a bad temper can produce some nice results. At least, that was the case today when my beautiful wife and I attempted to temper 2 kilos of chocolate. Although our efforts yielded undesirable returns as far as well tempered chocolate goes, the medium has grabbed us both by the short hairs.

Woofing down chocolate has been a passion of ours for-almost-ever, so we decided to take the plunge and learn more about it. Chocolate is like firefighters, you just can't say anything bad about em.

Below are some pictures from the day. Don't be fooled. We totally flopped. Ironically, when we figure out how to do it right, the pictures will probably become more boring. Hopefully there will be a long drawn out learning curve.


  1. YUUUUM!

    You and your wife must come to our annual chocolate event one of these years.

    My hubby and I are chocoholics, we can never get enough of the morsels of sin.

    Did you roast your own beans and grind them up too!?

  2. eventually I want to make chocolate from the bean but for now we are just ruining perfectly good chocolate.
