Bizarre air bubbles in chocolate air bubbles

gourmandadventurer Feb 18, 2009 05:02 PM

I've dipped a lot of chocolate but have never seen anything like this, and I'd love to hear thoughts from any experts:

I dipped some peanut butter creams in milk Guittard chocolate, which I'd nuked, then sprinkled a very small amount of sea salt on top.

I don't think the salt coated the whole chocolate but it looks like tiny little air bubbles appeared all over the chocolate then popped.

The chocolate had melted a little as my friend was storing it at around 65 degrees.

Have you seen this? Any idea why it happened? Thanks!
