Homemade Ghana Chocolate: Quick And Easy DIY Recipe

Sweet Adjeley, a popular food blogger, takes us through very quick and easy steps to making homemade chocolate – the Ghanaian way.

Homemade Ghana Chocolate? you may be wondering. Well, two things make Ghanaian chocolates distinct.

Premium Ghana Cocoa Not Artificial Chocolate

cocoa post, cocoa news, chocolate news,First, it’s made with the pricey world-acclaimed Premium Ghana Cocoa – not a mixture. Yes, most of the chocolate brands you may know are made from a mixture of some amount of Ghana and great amounts of other less expensive beans from elsewhere.

Secondly, when biting on a bar of Ghanaian chocolate you are assured it is a pure treat of unadulterated natural chocolate, not laboratory-formulated artificial compound chocolate.

According to Wikipedia, these compound chocolates are a product made from a combination of cocoa, vegetable fat and sweeteners. They are often used as a lower-cost alternative to true chocolate, as it uses less-expensive hard vegetable fats such as coconut oil or palm kernel oil in place of the more expensive cocoa butter.

No doubt, therefore, that scores of tourists actually troop to Ghana annually to savour the true quality cocoa chocolate while embarking on experiential and knowledge tours of the origins of the raw material for the world’s favourite snack.

Tourists would often learn that Ghana is not only the second-largest producer of cocoa globally, after neighbouring Ivory Coast, but also get to meet some of the over 800,000 smallholder farm families who expertly apply 140 years of national experience in cocoa-growing to produce the best quality cocoa beans that accord consumers around the world the numerous health benefits of quality natural cocoa.
