How to recognize quality chocolate?

These harlequin cake recipes are mainly about chocolate and cocoa, but how can we even determine the quality of the product?

Chocolate can be classified as a superfood because it has very positive effects on our health. Just in the flood of various kinds and types of chocolate, it is really difficult to know them and choose the really high-quality one. That’s why we bring you a few tips on how to navigate through this flood with ease.

Some information about the chocolate will be revealed by the packaging itself, sometimes you need to search a little more. But the effort you put in will eventually bring you the desired result, and you will be able to enjoy the real delicious taste of chocolate, without any regrets.


Producing quality chocolate is not a cheap matter, and this is reflected in its price. Smaller manufacturers and factories mostly use traditional production methods and quality ingredients. However, these chocolates are not available in ordinary stores, because their price can reach 80 – 200 crowns per bar, which is a big difference compared to the prices of large-scale manufacturers. Therefore, they are usually not attractive in terms of price for the average consumer and therefore competitive.


Unfortunately, it is not true that the higher percentage of cocoa a chocolate contains, the better it is. The percentage does not necessarily mean the amount of cocoa beans used to make chocolate, but rather will determine the volume of cocoa mass in dry matter. Which means diluting the chocolate and worsening its quality and nutritional value.


Chocolate is not demanding in terms of the quantity of ingredients, but we have to pay even more attention to their quality. An excessive amount of additives indicates excessive industrial processing. The presence of various flavorings and stabilizers will rather harm the quality of the chocolate, because high-quality chocolate can get by with cocoa beans and cane juice.


We don’t know much about the production method from the packaging on the chocolate, but if we really wanted to investigate, it is always possible to visit the website of the company in question. We should then pay attention to the place from which the cocoa beans are imported and further pay attention to the method of roasting them.

If you want to apply your acquired experience immediately, try these recipes for a bun from a Margot stick , which are full of cocoa and chocolate.
