Milk chocolate recipe C823 is the less fluid variety of Callebaut’s iconic 823 milk chocolate. It stands out with its deep, warm colour; prominent roasted cocoa flavours and seductive caramelly notes. It has a generous taste and great reputation in workability. It can be paired with a wide array of powerful fruity, spicy, dairy or liqueur-like flavours.
The C823 contains about 3% less cocoa butter than the 823, is less fluid and therefore ideal for creating ganaches with a stable, thicker texture. The C823 also allows moulding of bigger hollow figures with a thicker shell: hollow figures of about 25-35 cm can be moulded in 1 go.
It’s also a great chocolate for homemade cake decorations: when tempered, the less fluid texture keeps the chocolate from becoming runny too easily.
