Hello chocophiles! I've been lurking for a year or so, I'm so excited to finally say hello. I have a tiny little chocolate shop in New Paltz, about 80 miles from NYC. Everything we do is organic,…Continue
"Thank you, Lagusta, for your response. It's certainly not as easy as I thought it was going to be. The recipe given on the internet was said, on the same website, to be easy and delicious. I suppose that coconut sugar…"
We make a version of what you're making that we use for fillings and things. You can't really use it as a "ganache" without adding so much cocoa butter that it tastes terrible, or so much sugar that it's way…"
"Hi: I did a search on that company on the internet and you were right about contacting them. But the computer wanted me to open an Outlook account for emails and when I wouldn't the notice appeared saying the address was…"
"Yesterday I tried to make the vegan white chocolate using a recipe I found on the internet and which called for coconut oil, coconut butter and coconut sugar. I first of all melted the cocobutter and then added the oil to it and mixed them…"
"Hello! How nice to meet another vegan organic chocolate company!
And what a bizarre experience with the Callebaut rice milk chocolate, wow. I'll look out for it, even though it sounds rather odd. I'm now working with Cacao Prieto, in…"

"Sorry, my mistake, but then the lucama or cashews are used instead of the milk? I see your point then, but then it is not a milk chocolate but a Lucama chocolate. That is going to taste very different, isn't it? Where can I buy your…"
"Interested to know why anyone thinks milk or milk substitutes has more to do with 'chocolate' than say lucuma or cashews?! *Chocolate is CACAO! *
Dark chocolate doesn't contain milk- so why should white chocolate? You can get raw…"
"Using Lucuma and coconut, or cashews, might make an interesting bar... but it is not really chocolate anymore. However I am curious how is the cacao butter produced for such raw products, I could find nothing relevant on SacredChocolate, and…"
"I am a chocolatier in London. I make Raw chocolate (shoot me down in flames)!
Without dwelling on the 'raw thing' to much...I make a 'white chocolate" with Lucuma, cacao butter, coconut oil and coconut sugar.
My mother and I have a small chocolate business in Victoria, BC Canada. We are also fully organic, fair trade and vegan. We are also soy and gluten free. We use Cocoa Barry organic, fair trade 71.7% dark chocolate for all of our products. This…"
