Recently I have been thinking about trying to make Dark Chocolate at home.I am not much of a cook.I have never tried it. I came across some recipes online.So I know the recipe and I have the ingredients. Have any of you made chocolate at home?Is it simple,as it is said online.Any practical advice?( I know we can not post recipes.I have got the recipe). I am wondering whether it will it be worth the trouble . Image-Pixabay.

@allen0187 Day by day I am leaning towards the idea that it is better to buy them.

@silvermist although making chocolates yourself would definitely add satisfaction when you eat these!

The dark chocolate is not expensive here in Switzerland and surely better of what I can make at home.

@LadyDuck Dark chocolates that are bought from store are better.My favorite chocolates are from Switzerland.They are imported here.The only thing is they are very costly.

@silvermist I know that online recipes say to use "coconut oil" to make dark chocolate at home. Swiss chocolate makers DO NOT use coconut oil, they stick to their ancient recipe, it's the same for the Belgian chocolate makers.

As much as I love to bake, I don't think I would attempt to make dark chocolate at home.

I think it would be really neat to make my own. If the ingredients were all ones I could grow it wouldn't be as expensive as it would be for me now to do it. I would to buy the cocoa beans or whatever they are called from out of state.

Oh, I have never even thought about making them... I've done some baking that the recipe called for some dark chocolate - and I'd simply buy them from the store...

I would have thought that it wasn't worth the trouble, and it would probably be cheaper to just buy it.

Chocolate is my favorite. A slice of chocolate cake would be delightful. There's a couple of recipe books around here somewhere. Enjoy the baking.
