    Artificially sweetened anything is disgusting.

    And I don't dip my strawberries in anything! I'm perfectly capable of
    eating just the perfect amount of Chocoley Fair Trade, Organic
    65% Dark Couverture Chocolate bits, warming them in my mouth to the
    perfect consistency and then adding just the rigjht amount of bite of
    a room temp strawberry to make the perfect chocolate+strawberry in my
    mouth!

    Of course if I *did* dip my strawberries in anything it would be
    melted Chocoley Fair Trade, Organic 65% Dark Couverture Chocolate,
    which contains real sugar, not some lab produced non-nutritive
    artifical sweetener crap!

    His head is filled with artificially sweetened ganache? That would
    explain things.

    Bryan was merely once again wallowing in his own narcissistic sense of

    I wasn't implying that. I wondered why he started off with
    artificially sweetened ganache and switched to strawberries. Very
    ADD. http://oi41.tinypic.com/s441ts.jpg

    You should appreciate a thread about ganache, considering your skills
    as a confectioner and donut maker.

    Because the artificially sweetened ganache is what I've been dipping
    my strawberries in. I figured that'd be obvious.

    It wasn't. Why do you do that? How on earth do you make
    "artificially" sweetened ganache? Sounds like too much work to me.
    It's easy enough to add heavy cream to melted chocolate chips and it's
    easier to skip the cream entirely. Semisweet chocolate is sweet
    enough, why bother to "sweeten" it at all - especially with something
    artificial? I see people add sweetened condensed milk to some
    ganache, but that would send me straight to the dentist. Why don't
    you just go with sour cream and brown sugar?

    I don't use semisweet. I avoid avoidable carbs. I make it with
    unsweetened chocolate and pure sucralose.

    And that does taste better, but it's also higher in carbs, which means
    I get to have less of it.

    John, can you still not temper chocolate??? It's so much better- I'll
    tell you how, okay? We use disks where I work, so you may be working
    with chopped...
    Melt 3/4 of your desired amount to 120 slowly- we use a microwave in
    small doses- gotta stir it a lot
    Add the rest cold and chopped small to melt into the hot chocolate-
    you want to cool the chocolate to about 85, and still want some chunks
    that don't melt all the way. When there, nuke for 10 second
    increments until the rest melts- stir a lot!!! You can always let it
    sit a min or 2 to let the bits melt down from the heat. Do a little
    drizzle test on a neutral surface- if it starts to set up in a couple
    of minutes, you are in temper...

    Mine does have cream. It also has a bit of added vanilla extract.
    Only a pig would use sweetened condensed milk.
