Kosher Dark Chocolate Ingredients: Cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, emulsifier: soy lecithin and natural vanilla.
Made in our Belgian chocolate factory just outside of Bruges. We select high quality cacao roasted at low temperature for a long time to create a deep flavor. Natural and pure cacao when roasted longer offers a smooth chocolate tasting experience much like a high quality coffee. Medium dark brown chocolate color, bittersweet flavor with notes of caramel and muted acidity.
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:
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.
We use Ethical Trade Cacao Chocolate. Our raw cacao ingredients come from socially responsible fair trade chocolate brokers. UTZ is one of our cacao auditors with very detailed methods in place to guarantee traceability, sustainability and ethical trade practices.
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.

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. Rose E. on 19th Jan 2017
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. Unknown on 1st Oct 2016
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. Unknown on 22nd Jun 2016
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! DC on 6th Apr 2016

Our Belgian Wholesale Chocolate Grand Aroma recipe marks the strong points of the best Belgian chocolate which are flavors of dark cocoa with an earthy flavorful melt.
