Children's Chocolate Dipping Party!

Last weekend twenty children came on a very chocolatey outing to dip their own confections in the Compartes kitchen!

 

 

In groups of five to ten, while the others enjoyed games and crafts outdoors on the patio, began the factory tour by Compartes Owner Jonathan Grahm. As he showed them how the chocolates are made and stored, he even let the children into the gigantic fridge on their way through! In turn their names were then written on stickers and placed onto plates where they would let their chocolate creations dry! And so on they journeyed into the dipping room, the fresh chocolate churning delectably in the chocolate kettles! Neatly aside set out ready for dipping were fresh strawberries, marshmallows, pretzels, Oreo Cookies and Vanilla Wafers… mmm!


Then came the fun! After a short demonstration, mouths left watering, the children excitedly sprang into action! Taking it in turns (patience was short with the scent of fresh chocolate as it whisked before them!) they each chose five confections to dip in one of the two kettles: milk chocolate or dark chocolate.

 

Content with their accomplishments, their chocolate was moved into the refrigerator to cool.

Ten minutes later, chocolates ready, children jumping with excited impatience, what could have been more rewarding than biting into their very own handmade chocolates!?

Does this sound like something for your children, a school, or a group of children you know? Please contact us for more information!

INGREDIENTS (makes 36)


PIES
1 cup butter (Jonathan recommends salted European-Style butter for maximum flavor and texture!)
1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup sour milk (don't have? 1 tsp white vinegar or lemon juice + 1 cup milk. Combine and let stand 5min)

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (Jonathan recommends raw cacao available from markets such as Whole Foods)
1 teaspoon (unrefined) sea salt or fleur de sel

FILLING
1 1/2 cups (salted) butter
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 egg whites stiffly beaten

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

PIES: In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla and sour milk. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Stir together the baking powder and hot water then mix them into the batter last. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm but not overbaked. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
