Continuing Education is pleased to present “Friday Freebies,” a series of online, no-cost, half-hour courses offered through Zoom for fun and personal enrichment.


March 26, from 3:30 to 4pm – Watch Your Temper!
Instructor: Deb Morris, Barkeater Chocolates, LLC

Have you ever tried to work with chocolate at home and found it to be fickle, frustrating and (anything but) fun? The culprit was probably one of chocolate's main components: cocoa butter. This fat is why we can't just melt it, set it and forget it. During this session, the instructor will guide you through the art of hand tempering chocolate, explain how to choose your chocolate wisely, and entertain you with chocolate's backstory. 

Attendance is limited; preregistration is required online HERE, through Zoom. After preregistering, you will receive an email from Zoom with the link to this session. 

Optional: If you’d like to follow along with the instructor, you will need:

  • 1 pound of plain dark or milk chocolate*
  • 1 digital candy or meat thermometer 
  • 1/4 cup of any nut of your choice and/or dried fruit (optional)

* Pick a block of chocolate that contains nothing but chocolate liquor (which might be called chocolate mass or chocolate paste), sugar, milk (for milk chocolate) or milk fat (optional for dark chocolate), vanilla (natural) and any kind of lecithin (sunflower or soy). For example, Callebaut, Valhrona, Guittard, Sharfen Berger or Giradhelli chocolate will work.
