Is Chocolate good for you?


Commercially produced Fondant is a commonly used filling in chocolate truffles. And that's a problem. Since it can be almost 100% sugar - it may taste good - but it's not going to have any of the chocolate good stuff - and that's not great. The best thing - ask! If you are buying hand made chocolate - the seller should know if they are made using commercial fondant. And in any case - the ingredient list is a great clue - if the chocolate isn't telling you the % cocoa butter - it is probably low (on average 20%) - and that's not what you want.
