Why does my chocolate have white spots?

Pourquoi mon chocolat a des taches blanches? - Choco de Léa

You may be wondering why your chocolate is sometimes covered in a whiteish veil. Well, that's because it's not tempered!

We temper (or crystallize) the chocolate so that it has the right texture and the right color. Because no one finds it pleasant to eat chocolate speckled white and crumbling (even if in my opinion it often looks like fields of flowers or the craters of an unknown planet)!

Now you know why your chocolate can sometimes have white spots! Rest assured, it is still very good to eat!
