Ever wondered how the snowy, tangier relative of dark chocolate is made? It may be a revelation: According to The New Food Lover's Companion, "Not really chocolate at all, white chocolate contains no chocolate liquor, which means it has little, if any chocolate flavor." Instead, the two desserts share a cocoa butter base, but white chocolate uses lecithin and vanilla for flavoring.
Chocolate might be considered more exotic than vanilla, but the addition of vanilla in white chocolate makes for a plethora of rich desserts with complex flavor. Check out the innovative white chocolate recipes and more from our Slashfood Flickr pool.
