Blonde chocolate is basically caramelized white chocolate. It is considered its own type of chocolate because it has a very distinct roasted flavor. It tastes like caramel candy but is tempered like a bar of chocolate. Its not sticky like caramel either. You can purchase blonde chocolate from a few different makers.
The best makers will make it right. Specifically blonde chocolate is roasted cocoa butter. When you stick the cocoa butter in the oven at 250 for about 50 minutes and stir every 10. Its so easy but rare. Its so delicious but uncommon.
We are working on our blonde chocolate recipe here at Island Sharks Chocolate. Simultaneous we are working on several other new chocolate bar recipes. You see blonde chocolate would be great as a base for our 100% Ka'u Peaberry Coffee.
It would also be great as a salted caramel bar if we just added a little Hawaiian Sea Salt, or even local and salty seaweed.
The possibilities are endless but there are only 3 types of chocolate. You know about blonde, now. You've heard of Dark and White Chococlate. So what are you missing? Ruby and Milk chocolate. You see, when you learn about ruby and milk you will see they are not vegan. They are in fact marketing ploys to get consumers to buy more chocolate. Ruby has dairy and milk, well, it has dairy. Chocolate is vegan. Real chocolate anyway.
So blonde chocolate is not always vegan. It can be made vegan and yes we can make a vegan "mylk" chocolate but here is the thing. Ruby cannot be made without dairy. So lets just call it "candy". Oh and milk chocolate? Call that chocolate with milk. It is easy to know what chocolate is what and how to call or name each type. You will see every other single company disagree with us and say there are 5 types of chocolate. Maybe four but until there is a vegan Ruby, we don't count it.
New flavors will be released sometime between fall 2021 and spring of 2022 in small and super limited quantities. You are at the right website. Stay right here for announcements!
