Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!

I am molding bars of dark chocolate and recently have starting having strange spots on the bars in only one place on each bar, but it moves..  its looks like cacao butter film.  I am baffled as to what might be causing this.  I wonder if its the temperature in my shop?  I put all the bars on shelves to cool.  I used to put them directly into the freezer and had no troubles then,but I

thought that wasn't the best for the chocolate, because of condensation, so now I let them cool at room temperature, which fluctuates.

Hi Beth, how do you temper the chocolate? Manually? which are the temperatures you use?

Could be "point of last release"

could be contraction/releasing marks. You should leave your chocolates on the mold til they release completely
