    Making lactose free chocolate

    Fri Mar 16, 2012 11:14 pm Groupie
    i want to make a chocolate easter bunny for someone who is lactose intollerant. I know I can use lactose free milk but how do I make chocolate that I can pour into a mould? I have never done this before and recipes talk about cocoa beans which is far more than I want to do, I was thinking more like something with cocoa.

    There is such a thing as dairy free chocolate chips, and bars...

    Starting with dairy free chocolate may make it easier to make Easter bunnys, eggs, etc.

    If you "temper" the chocolate, and pour the tempered chocolate into the molds, the chocolate will be more stable and not melt at room temperature. It will not need to be kept in the refrigerator.

    To temper the chocolate:
    Boil several cups of water in a small saucepan. Place about 3/4 of the chocolate in a heat-proof stainless steel or pyrex bowl and set this over (but not touching) the boiling water, stirring occasionally until melted. Remove from heat and mix in the remaining chocolate. Allow chocolate to rest for about 3 minutes, then mix and return above the boiling water for one minute more. Remove from heat and allow to rest for about 2 minutes, or until the mixture is just warm to the touch. Pour chocolate into mold, place in freezer to set the chocolate (about 5 minutes or so). Remove chocolate from mold and store in an air tight container, or wrap so it is air tight.
