Belcolade Belgian chocolate is known as one of the top two Belgian chocolates purchased and used by European chefs and patissiers. Peru's tropical climate is ideal for growing cocoa and it is believed that the plant may have originated in the upper reaches of the Amazon rain forest. The strength and elegance of Peru 64 comes from the careful selection of Criollo and Trinitario cocoa beans. This rich dark chocolate offers a slightly acid cocoa taste with fruity notes enhanced by a touch of fresh fruit and a bouquet of raisins and dried figs. Low viscosity. Applications: dipping, enrobing, hollow figures, moulding, thin enrobing, panning.
The drops are perfect for adding to cookies, or using to decorate bars or cakes. Drops melt easily for icing or candy.
Kosher. Made in Belgium, 64% cocoa content
Note: Due to high temperatures or high humidity, chocolate products may melt during shipment. We only ship chocolate during fall/winter/spring months when the temperature is cooler. However, we cannot guarantee that chocolate will not melt during the shipping process. Chocolate that has encountered melting will appear dull coloured or may have greyish/white streaks and dots. This is known as 'bloom' and indicates that the cocoa butter is separating from the chocolate and is rising to the surface. Although not the prettiest in appearance, chocolates with bloom are fine to eat with little impact to the texture or taste of the chocolate.
