Guittard 100% cacao unsweetened chocolate baking bars are for serious dark chocolate devotees. Use to make intense homemade chocolates to enjoy after dinner with coffee.
There’s no sugar or other sweeteners added to these baking bars, so you experience the unadulterated flavour of Guittard’s fair trade cacaos. Though the flavour starts off bitter, it gives way to hints of fruit and spices with rich cocoa depth.
Balance the intense dark chocolate with sharp, sweet citrus flavours. Try lime and yuzu for a complex blend of sweet, citrus and floral. Contrast the bitter chocolate with rich, creamy ingredients like white chocolate and vanilla. Or try your hand at the gourmet brownie recipe that comes with every box of 100% cacao baking bars.
For best results when chocolate making, first break the bars into pieces. Melt slowly over a bain-marie and stir regularly. Try to keep the temperature of the chocolate below 31 degrees Celsius – if it rises above that, you may need to temper the chocolate again. If you’re not sure how, follow our ‘How To Temper Chocolate’ guide.
Guittard were established in San Francisco in 1868, by Etienne Guittard. He originally left France for California to make his fortune in the gold rush, and he took some chocolate from his uncle’s factory with him. The miners loved it – so instead of heading to the mines, Etienne started a brisk trade in fine chocolate. 250 years on, Guittard is still in the family. They use vintage equipment to tease out the best flavours from their specially selected cacao, and their chocolates are loved worldwide by professionals and home cooks alike.
Ingredients: cocoa beans. Minimum 100% cocoa solids. Made on equipment also used to make milk chocolate and products containing almonds. Not suitable for individuals with dairy or nut allergies.
