Learn How To Make Delicious Praline Filled Chocolate Bars 

Filled Bars, or Snacking Bars, are a fun way to make treats for your friends and family, or as a product to sell.

They can be kept simple, with one layer inside, or more complex with multiple layers.

Want To Make Delicious Homemade Chocolates?

This 1.5-2hr livestream class is focused on making filled chocolate bars, or snacking bars. This can be done using any shade of chocolate and the fillings can be chopped and changed to meet your needs.

We’ll be using naturally coloured cocoa butters and stone ground chocolates in this class to create gorgeous chocolate shells. If you are not making your own stone ground chocolate, you can use couverture/pre-made instead.

Elements covered in this class …

Mirror Shine

Caring for your professional moulds is very important. The way you care for them will ensure longevity of the mould and a brilliant, mirror shine on the chocolate. All chocolatiers choose a different way of treating and maintaining their moulds. I will share my most current methods and methods I have used in the past too. This will give you a good selection of methods to choose from.

Shelling & Capping

No matter how much experience you have in this, you can always refine your technique and learn something new. My technique for both these applications has changed over the years. The filling of the chocolate will dictate the method I use to seal them. In this class we will seal them by pouring chocolate onto the back of the mould. This method of shelling is used to make any type of filled or hollow chocolate – bonbons, filled bars, Easter Eggs, etc… So, it’s a great one to master.

Colouring Moulds

We’ll be using naturally coloured cocoa butter and stone ground chocolates for decorating the moulds. No fancy equipment will be used, so that everyone can do this at home or work. We will cover a few different colouring methods, as seen on this page, using only paint brushes and sponges.

Fruity Fillings

Fruit fillings are really popular. The downside of using fresh fruits in your chocolates is that it reduces the shelf life substantially. What’s the fix? In this class we’ll go through making an easy white chocolate praline that will act as a base for the 3 fruit fillings we’ll be using. Making your fruity fillings this way will extend shelf life by 6 months and they are stable at room temp.
