Dessert is great, but adding chocolate makes it even better – there are so many delicious treats you can make using chocolate, including cakes, pies, and cupcakes. You can add milk chocolate frosting or mousse to a dessert to add an element of chocolate flavor. Adding chocolate to a recipe can change not only how it tastes but its structure, too! Here are three ways that adding chocolate to your desserts can create a delicious change.
Think of your favorite dessert’s texture. Is it flaky and crumbly or is it creamy and smooth? If you’re a fan of the smoother textures, you may be pleased to find that adding specific kinds of chocolate can help you achieve those textures. Chocolates with higher fat contents, when added to desserts, can create a delicious, smooth texture that you’re sure to enjoy.
There are few desserts better than a moist chocolate cake. However, you may have found that the levels of moisture can vary dramatically depending on the ingredients you use. Ingredients like flour and cocoa powder absorb the moisture from foods like eggs, milk, and butter. While cocoa powder plays an important role in this way, it is vital to consider how much you are using in relation to other ingredients. If you are using a recipe involving flour and cocoa powder, remember that they serve a similar purpose.
When making a dessert, it’s important to consider its structure. Cakes and other desserts require the right proportions of wet (eggs, milk, butter) and dry (flour, cocoa powder) ingredients not only to taste good but to be stable as well. Adding cocoa powder to a dessert can help stabilize a dessert and add some great flavor to it as well.
