My chocolate has turned white, what's wrong?
If the stain is greasy, then you may have stored the chocolate at an excessively high temperature (over 22°C). The white is just the fat drawn to the surface. The chocolate is still edible. If the stain is in the form of crystals, then the chocolate has come in contact with water and the sugars have formed on the surface. The taste of the chocolate will have been changed.
My chocolate doesn't taste right, why?
It has most likely been exposed to water, constant light, or a strong smelling product. It could also have been stored for too long.
Can you mix imitation chocolate with real chocolate?
Absolutely not. The fats are incompatible. You need pure chocolate, and nothing but.
What is a truffle?
Generally it is a paste in the form of a blob that is covered with a chocolate shell and decorated with cocoa powder or chocolate flakes. The paste at Marsatta is made from chocolate mixed with our special, exclusive cream imported from different parts of the world, and flavored with the best liqueurs.More about chocolate truffles.
What fruit is suitable for chocolate?
In general, dried fruit such as raisins, figs, candied fruits, and nuts can be used as well as fresh fruits. Fruits with a high water content need to be handled differently. Marsatta uses the best candied fruits, brought in from all over the world, to use for their chocolates. We spare no expense. Our desire is for you to have an amazing chocolate experience. Our location is always a plus. Year round we also treat you to fresh organic fruit, hand dipped or served on a skewer.
What can be used to flavor chocolate?
Anything that is soluble in oil, all you have to do is add it to the melted chocolate. If you have something in mind, let us know, we would love to try something new, or make up something special for you.
