Chocolate chips
« on: November 25, 2008, 06:15:01 pm »
Does anyone know how to chip up a bar of chocolate in the TM to use for choc chip cookies?  I had a go the other night and ended up milling it instead  :(

Best to start with bits of unifprm size and try a couple of Turbo pulses.  Check what's there - take out big bits and then little chunks into a bowl to use - very easy to have fine powder within seconds.

I am not a chocolate person and the method may be tedious?  But that's how I have done it.

I've used turbo pulses VERY CAREFULLY. As said it is so easy to end up with chocolate powder.  But then that's great for hot chocolate!

Um, yes ... very valid question.  What did I do?????  I think I probably did about 10 seconds on speed 7.  Not sure though.  It would be helpful to remember that sort of thing, wouldn't it, if I want to learn how to do it!  ::)

 ;D I hear you, Brazen.

Tried the turbo method, Cookie1 - very carefully, as you suggested - and it worked.  Thanks.
