Now i know, to make chocolate you don't use cooking chocolate. There are two types of chocolate i.e compound and couverture. Then u have dark chocolate, white chocolate and milk chocolate. You can use fillings eg strawberry, mango, raspberry and even durian other than the nuts and dates. Then. there are moulds with various pattern ranging from RM 10 to RM 200 depending on the material of the mould. I found out that having a chiller is a must if you are into culinary business.
Here are some pictures that i managed to capture during my class of chocolate & praline. We had our hands dirty with chocolate during hands on that i couldn't take more pictures.
