What actually made me want to learn how to make white chocolate from scratch was because of how versatile it really is. You can use it for so many different things. Knowing how to extract the vanilla essence from the beans was the key. I knew that there must be something out there that would allow me to create these great tasting desserts.

It wasn’t long before I found some excellent recipes online. They had all been featured on Yahoo answers, which made it easy for me to find out all about the different products. The most popular item, that the people were asking how to make white chocolate from scratch we’re recipes that involved cacao butter. Cacao butter is an ingredient that you commonly find in all sorts of sweet recipes. You will also find recipes that call for vanilla extract. Both of these ingredients are combined to create the different flavours that are often called “flavour”.

Another question I was asked was if it was possible to substitute the vanilla extract for another flavour. My first answer was yes. So I did a little research to see what else was out there that could replace vanilla. One of the other options available to me was to simply melt down a tablespoon or two of cacao butter and pour it into a sauce pan. Allow the cream to melt down and then add in any other ingredients that you would like to your hot cocoa.

Now I know you might be thinking that this is a rather simplistic way of how to make white chocolate. In fact it’s really not that simple. If you take just a moment to think about what exactly goes into making the so-called “white” cream, you will see that there are a number of ingredients that are used to give it that consistency. Those ingredients include butter, sugar, vanilla, milk, and cacao.

Line Your Cupcake Pan With The Mixture

The next thing that you will want to do is take your two bowls and mix together the melted chocolate, unsweetened vanilla, and your powdered sugar. You will also need to stir in your cacao. You should have everything well mixed by this time. Once you have everything well blended, it’s just a matter of spooning it into your pre-made lined cupcake pan.

The next step is to line your cupcake pan with the mixture, or you can use custom designed cupcake pans. Next, you will add your rolled chocolate to your mixture. If using fresh chocolate, you will just spoon it directly into the cupcake liner. If using shredded or dried fruit powder, it will be wise to pipe it in as well.

Final Thoughts

When finished, you should let your cupcakes cool down for about thirty minutes before frosting them. Once the cupcakes are cool, you can frost them with any type of frosting that you prefer. If you wish to add additional embellishments such as fresh berries, frosting meringue, or even real whipped cream, then it’s entirely up to you.
