Kids Praline

Knowing about the joy, chocolate brings to children, we want to share some creations specially made for the younger chocolate lovers. We developed a couple of exciting pralines, in shapes such as Butterflies and Robots. These pralines for kids are filled with praliné, a paste made of ground nuts and chocolate, and coated in Dark Chocolate, decorated with natural food coloring.

Beside the pralines, there are also chocolate dinosaurs to discover in our Javasik collection, starring Tyrannosaurus, Brachiosaurus and a few others. The dinosaurs are made from Milk Chocolate with 41% Cocoa. The creamy character and joyful sweetness makes it a children’s favourite! – Available at all of our showrooms and online

Tempering Chocolate

  1. Chop the chocolate into fine pieces.
  2. Melt 70% of the total quantity in a microwave or bain-marie, until the chocolate reaches the recommended melting temperature (see table).
    • If using a microwave: heat only for 30-60 seconds, take the chocolate out and stir it well. Repeat the progress until you reach a homogenous texture without any grains.
    • Note: Melt the chocolate step-by-step, because just like milk, chocolate can burn easily. – The smaller the amount of chocolate you want to melt, the shorter the heating periods should be.
  3. Stop heating and add the remaining 30% of the chopped chocolate to the mix.
  4. Stir intensively. Thereby you ensure that the added chocolate melts in the mix, while cooling it down to the desired working temperature.

Note: The chocolate has to be TEMPERED, if you want to mould it into any desired shape and achieve a smooth, glossy and evenly colored texture.
