Best Chocolate Dessert 2019
More than 2000 years old, cocoa, which was first discovered in Central America, has now become the staple ingredient in many popular desserts we have the pleasure of enjoying today. Rich and dense chocolate cake, light and foamy mousse and creamy and full-flavored chocolate cheesecakes all require this ancient ingredient. At Jessica Pastries, we love creating chocolate desserts to satisfy our chocoholic customers’ sweet tooth. This is why we use the very best chocolate and cocoa products in our creations.
Discover 5 of our best chocolate desserts that are sure to fly off your shelves.
Characteristics of Chocolate
First, it is important to know that there are three types of chocolate:
1. Milk chocolate
2. Dark chocolate
3. White chocolate
The difference between the three is the percentage of sugar as well as the percentage of cocoa powder. For example white chocolate is a composition of sugar, milk, cocoa butter but does not contain any cocoa powder. Dark chocolate can have a varying range of cocoa powder percentage. The higher the percentage, the more bitter the chocolate will be. Chocolate is one of the most used ingredients in pastry cooking. It adds a rich texture, a certain consistency and, of course, a great taste. It’s the base of many desserts, and sometimes there are some in recipes you wouldn’t suspect. For example: White chocolate helps us at Jessica Pastries a lot with the consistency of our glazes since we use it to make the glaze more dense and non-transparent. It also takes the role of the gelatine. The quality of the chocolate is also very important when baking. In a lesser quality chocolate, you can find other ingredients like palm oil for example, which is used to recreate the texture of cocoa butter. Cheaper, these inferior types of chocolate really lower the quality of the desserts. Jessica Pastries, we bake with BARRY-CALLEBAUT chocolate, a world-leading chocolate supplier that has been producing chocolate for over 175 years. Their chocolate is of great quality and they have a wide range of variety of chocolates we can use. For example we use the INAYA chocolate, which has some fruity flavors. We also use GRAND CARAQUE, which has 0% sugar, only cocoa. It gives our mousse a very intense chocolate taste.
