Jivara Lactée makes baking more surprising and delightful than ever before, by using only the highest-caliber forestero cocoa beans, and raising them to a distinctly creamy crescendo. With unmatched craftsmanship, this milk chocolate blend has been imbued with a vanilla and malt after-note, bringing out the flavors of the Ecuadorian earth in which those cocoa beans first sprouted.
Each bag of Jivara is filled with oval-shaped pistoles, so much easier to prepare than rectangular blocks. What's more, the bag is re-sealable, so leftovers can be stored for later use without losing any of those aromatic flavors. The bag also includes instructions to properly temper the mixture so that it stays firm at room temperature.
With chocolate this perfect, why not try it out in some of your favorite recipes? Milk chocolate chip cookies are a great place to start, but there are plenty of other applications, including couverture, coating, glaze, mold, mousse, sauce, or decorations for pastry and baking dishes.
