Dark Chocolate Candy has gained a new level of respect in recent years...
Dark chocolate is chocolate that contains chocolate liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla, and lecithin (an emulsifier). It is sometimes called "plain chocolate" because it is chocolate without milk as an additive.
Dark chocolate is often distinguished by the percentage of cocoa solids in the bar. The higher the cocoa content, the darker the chocolate.
In commercial dark chocolate bars, the cocoa content can range from 30% (sweet dark) and up to 80% for extremely dark, high-quality bars.
The cocoa content ratio favored by gourmet bakers is between 35% and 50%, which most dark chocolates contain.
European varieties are typically darker than American-manufactured dark chocolates.
