Ruby Chocolate revelled globally in 2017 by the famous Swiss Chocolatiers Barry Callebaut. We have all heard alto about the new fourth chocolate as it is being called, but very few of us have had a change to taste this new creation. Is it real or some concocted confection?
Basically, yes, this is real product, it is chocolate and it does have a fruity vibrant taste. It comes from the Ruby cocoa bean, processed just like regular cocoa beans and is not coloured in anyway. It does not, however, taste like the traditional cocoa you are used to. Smooth, velvety chocolate, dark or milk. It does have a mild white chocolate taste with a slightly sour, vanilla and fruity overtones.
Ruby Chocolate can be used exactly like chocolate, in fact as a hot chocolate it is gorgeous. Creamy and flavourful with a slight sour taste. It normally comes with quite a bit of sugar so if you are going to use Ruby to make your favourite chocolate products, it will pay you to play around with it first. Maybe adjusting the sugar to suit your tastes.
So far, I have used Ruby to make hot chocolate, flavour marshmallows, quadruple chocolate chip cookies and a luscious ruby velvet cake. As this product comes into its own more recipes will be tried and created. Patissiers are now beginning to experiment and soon you will see Ruby Chocolate desserts at all your favourite restaurants.
For now why not try a bag for yourself, melt it, eat it, drink it or just make a beautiful elegant creation. Click here to purchase this magnificent new product.
