Valrhona Chocolate Base

raisa Feb 9, 2012 03:16 AM

Umm... I am very confused right now. A friend from France brought me a pack of, what he calls, chocolate base. It turned out to be completely unsweetened chocolate with very high coco mass that is used to make truffles and things like that. I never made truffles and I already have good chocolates at home already. What else can I make using them? Like a cake or mousse or something that brings out the richness of the chocolate nicely. They are of really good quality by the way. So, help me please.

    Lucky you, Valrhona is the best chocolate. Makes great brownies. Use in any recipe calling for unsweetened chocolate. You control the sugar content, great in frosting too. or waffles, or cookies.
