C823 is the less-fluid varietal of Callebaut’s iconic 823 milk chocolate. It stands out with a deep, warm color; prominent roasted cocoa flavors and seductive caramelly notes. It has a generous taste and great reputation in workability, as it can be paired with a wide variety of powerful fruit, spicy, dairy or liquor-like flavors. The C823 consists of about 3% less cocoa butter than the 823, thus less fluid and ideal for creating ganaches with a stable, thicker texture. The C823 also allows molding of larger, hollow figures with a thicker shell. This blend also is great for homemade cake decorations: when tempered, the less fluid texture keeps the chocolate from becoming runny too easily.
