As connoisseurs of chocolate we understand that many of our customers buy our chocolate wafers to eat and ultimately to explore the world of creative cooking and chocolate making. The final chocolate creation is only as good as the ingredients used, which is why we continue to source and supply the very best.
What are Chocolate Wafers when Considering Chocolate Shape? Bulk chocolate wafers in this category are defined as small flat chocolate coins in shape. Wafers are shapes that are flat and round. Chocolate wafers are larger than the standard chip size of 2,000 pieces per pound (measured as count or CT). Each chocolate listed in this category has a specification sheet that lists an approximate size. You'll notice all sizes are less than the chocolate chip count per pound of 2,000CT. So a 1,200CT specification means there are 1,200 chocolate wafers in a pound. In this particular example of 1,200CT the chocolate wafers are about 40% larger than the standard chocolate chip that has 2,000 pieces in a pound. So this offers a technical way of understanding the approximate size of these chocolate types.
What is Melting Chocolate? Melting chocolate is defined as chocolate that melts evenly and without excessive heat. The melt will be smooth and glossy. The melting is due to the addition of cocoa butter in the chocolate or in the compound varieties a palm butter. The even and smooth melt lends the chocolate to use for enrobing and dipping.
What is Dipping Chocolate? We define dipping chocolate as chocolate that has a fluid viscosity at 87F so that it is easy to dip fruit and truffles. Some chocolates defined as dipping varieties will not offer the fluid viscosity. Ours will meet fluidity of 125V with some being even more fluid and flowing.
