Christmas Gifts: Homemade Toblerone

I love chocolate. I also love the homemade nougat I make. This homemade version of Toblerone is like my two favourite things had babies! It is so good. I have to admit, I did find tempering the chocolate was a bit time consuming (I couldn’t get the temp to lower) but the result was worth it. I think it helps to have a good thermometer (even a digital one). I’ll have to put that one on the Christmas list!

Once you’ve let them set, wrap them up in celephane bags or make mini chocolate bars like I did. Stick a nice ribbon around it and you’ve got a delicious homemade present (if you haven’t eaten it all by the time you finish).

Christmas Gifts: Homemade Toblerone

homemade nougat (recipe found here)
600g milk or dark chocolate
thermometer
2 chocolate moulds

1.  Place nougat in the fridge so it’s super cold and with a very sharp knife cut shards off the edges. Cut these into smaller chunks and place back in the fridge.

2.  You’ll need to temper the chocolate which will give it a shiny glossy finish and crisp snap! Make a double boiler by placing a large pot with 5-10cm of water on the stove. Bring it to a simmer and place a large bowl over the top of the pot so it sits well above the water line. Chop your chocolate into small pieces and place 3/4 in the double boiler. Ensure no water enters the chocolate!

3.  Stir gently and continuously with a silicone spatula. Bring the chocolate up to 46ºC for dark chocolate or 43ºC for milk chocolate. Remove the bowl from the double boiler immediately. Add the remaining chocolate and continue to stir to bring the temperature down. Once it drops to 29ºC put the bowl back on the double boiler for 5-10 seconds at a time. Keep an eye on the temperature until it reaches 31ºC for dark chocolate or 30ºC for milk chocolate.

4.  Your chocolate should now be tempered! Add a small amount of chocolate to the base of your chocolate moulds. Add 3–4 small pieces of chilled nougat  into each mould and cover with the remaining chocolate. Once covered, let it cool to set and enjoy with coffee!
