*Kiva Dipping Chocolate 

Yield: 25 oz. of dipping chocolate containing 50MG THC total.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds (24 oz) semi-sweet or dark chocolate, chopped
  • 10 milk or dark chocolate Kiva Bar squares containing 5MG THC each

Tips For Tempering Chocolate

  • Stick to higher quality bars of chocolate & avoid chocolate chips.
  • Never let water come in contact with the chocolate.
  • Have a few clean, dry kitchen towels nearby before you start.
  • For new cannabis consumers, keep the dosage of THC per serving low (2.5MG of THC or less).
  • The chocolate should not exceed 115°F for dark chocolate, and 110°F for milk chocolate. 

Preparation 

  1. Make a double boiler: Fill a medium saucepan with about 2” of water and bring the water to a simmer.
  2. Place 2/3 of the chopped chocolate in a medium metal, glass or other heat-proof bowl and place bowl over simmering water, ensuring the bottom of the bowl does not come into contact with the water.
  3. Let the chocolate sit until it’s about 3/4 of the way melted. Stir with a heat-resistant spatula until chocolate is completely melted and no chunks remain.
  4. Remove bowl from heat and place on a kitchen towel. Dry the outside of the bowl completely.
  5. Add remaining 1/3 chocolate and the Kiva chocolate. Continue stirring with a spatula until all the chocolate is completely melted. The chocolate should cool to about 89°F for dark chocolate, and 85°F for milk chocolate.
  6. The chocolate is now ready to be immediately used for dipping or coating.
