Pâte de cacao, also known as cocoa paste, is a key ingredient in chocolate making. It is made by grinding roasted cocoa beans into a fine paste, which is then molded into blocks. Pâte de cacao contains both cocoa solids and cocoa butter, giving it a rich, complex flavor and a smooth, creamy texture. This versatile ingredient can be used in a variety of sweet and savory recipes, from chocolate truffles and brownies to mole sauce and chili. Its deep, chocolatey flavor and velvety texture make it a must-have for any serious chocolate lover or chef.
