Chocolate Paste Recipe

Inspired by My Little Space I decided to try making home made chocolate paste. This version is based on the recipe found here just with a couple of little changes and added details. Easy to make, just gotta have a little patience! Is perfect for making Chocolate Wassants.

Chocolate Paste - Ready to be bagged and refrigerated

2 egg whites
100g  sugar
50g  flour
10g  corn flour
2 tbsp  milk
150g  chocolate, chopped.

Combine egg whites, sugar, flour, cornflour and milk in a saucepan. Mix well
Add chocolate and heat mixture on a very low heat until chocolate has melted.
Heat mixture on a low-medium heat until thickened, stir continuously.
When mixture is a paste like consistency, remove from heat and leave to cool.
Transfer to a plastic bag and refrigerate for at least an hour until set.

Chocolate Paste: Ready for use in Chocolate Wassants after an hour in the fridge
  • Make sure you melt the chocolate into the mixture on a very low heat; alternatively you could melt the chocolate in the microwave first then add to the rest of the mixture.
  • Be patient when waiting for the mixture to thicken; too much heat and you're running the risk of burning or splitting the mixture
