  1. I understand your curiosity about dark chocolate! When it comes to melting, dark chocolate behaves a bit differently than other chocolates. You see, chocolate contains something called cocoa butter, which gives it that smooth texture. Dark chocolate has more cocoa solids and less sugar compared to milk chocolate. This means it has less sugar to interfere with the cocoa butter. During melting, the cocoa butter crystals in dark chocolate stay stable at a slightly higher temperature than those in milk chocolate. So, dark chocolate can hold its shape in slightly warmer conditions. But, if it gets too hot, even dark chocolate will melt. It’s all about finding the right balance between cocoa solids, sugar, and temperature!
