Belgian Dark Chocolate bulk couverture at wholesale prices is a great value for home cooking and professional candy making. True to the real Belgian chocolate taste of dark roast cocoa beans with a touch of vanilla, this is the chocolate coffee lovers crave. This is an extra dark chocolate that is not too bitter or too earthy but rather balanced.

    Made in our Belgian chocolate factory just outside of Bruges.

    What is the best dark chocolate for candy making? 

    Our Belgian dark chocolate known as Grand Aroma is a favorite among pastry chefs and candy makers.

    All of our chocolates have been tested and prequalifed for candy making and professional chocolate making. They are tested for ease of tempering, viscosity, flavor after tempering, how they harmonize with different inclusions or fruit flavorings and all are significantly tested for food safety. Chocolate food safety is a very important priority for us. Our customers re-order at over an 80% rate and this is due to our testing and guarantee. As head chocolatier for Santa Barbara Chocolate I get to work with all of our chocolates everyday. I act as technical advisor for customers with specific questions mostly relating to a recipe or application.  When it comes to the best dark chocolate for candy making I advise that you choose a chocolate that makes you feel happy. Look at the chocolate's features and see if they are right for you. The top 6 things I look for in a quality chocolate are:

    • Does the chocolate taste great?
    • Is the chocolate made with pure cocoa butter or does it have some type of added filler replacing cocoa butter (i.e. palm oil or cbe cocoa butter equivalent).
    • I like chocolate couvertures for candy making because they are lower viscosity (less thick) and more fluid. Chocolate couvertures have more cocoa butter then standard chocolate. Is the chocolate a couverture chocolate?
    • How does the chocolate taste? Is it a flavor you like? Is it too sweet, or too bitter?
    • Is the chocolate made from a responsibly sourced cacao or ethical trade cacao? This is very important for many reasons. Unfortunately some chocolates come from forced labor farms and this is a really bad thing for everyone's karma when profit becomes more important then good will and love. 
    • Is the chocolate artificial flavor free? This is important to us purists looking for real flavor.

    You obviously care about quality chocolate for eating and cooking and that's why you've come to our website to shop.  If you didn't care you would've gone to the store and bought something typical. But you clearly want your efforts to be rewarded with fun food and good karma. Thank you for your research. So in sum, to make a long story short: I really love our Belgian 64% dark chocolate for candy making because it is super fluid, easy to temper, responsible cocoa sourced, not too sweet and without fake flavor. It is a good one.

    1. GREAT GREAT CHOCOLATE

      Love this chocolate and so do my co-workers.They melt the chips at work and dip in different choices like strawberries, peanut butter, nuts, and more fruits. They are always happy when I have this chocolate in stock. on 3rd May 2017

    2. My oh my what a superb chocolate

      The Belgian Dark Chocolate Couverture Grand Aroma is gorgeous. Gorgeous to taste, wonderful to work with and looks elegant when done. We used it for dipped truffles for a wedding and they stole the show. Lovely as the bride. I came home and couldn't stand it that the chocolate was almost gone, so I ordered another box. on 27th Jan 2017

    3. Belgium dark and milk couverture

      They are both great! They taste so good! on 20th Jan 2017

    4. Wonderful Chocolate!

      I will always get my chocolate from SBC.. Top quality! Kim's Gourmet Kitchen.... on 19th Jan 2017

    5. Santa Barbara Chocolate

      My first time ordering from the Santa Barbara Chocolate Co. was a great experience. Opening the 3 lb bag of chocolate the aroma was so noticeable. I'm glad to find chocolate to my liking, what a treat. Thank you, Rose E. on 19th Jan 2017

    6. Purchased to eat straight up

      I/we purchased this to eat directly with my tea or coffee. This chocolate is smooth, creamy and has sweet note. However, it is a little too sweet for our liking as a snack. My wife and I did a taste test comparing the Belgian dark chocolate couvertaure grand aroma to T.J. 72% dark chocolate. We both preferred the T.J.'s since it was less sweet and more bitter. I guess this is just a personal taste thing. I'm sure the Santa Barbara Belgian couvertature is great for making desserts. Next time I/we will try a Santa Barbara chocolate that has a higher percentage of cocoa. on 1st Oct 2016

    7. Amazing stuff

      I keep ordering this chocolate over and over because it's just so good. It's great in recipes or to eat alone. Creamy mouth feel. Rich flavor, but still smooth. It also tempers beautifully and works well for things like chocolate dipped strawberries. You can't go wrong ordering this chocolate. on 22nd Jun 2016

    8. Perfect

      This chocolate is so lovely. The flavor is wonderfully rich and complex without any bitterness. It melts and pours beautifully. My chocolate bunnies were a huge hit! on 6th Apr 2016
