Discussion for: Why does white chocolate not melt?

What are your thoughts, experiences, or questions about Why does white chocolate not melt?? Whether you have a lot to say or just want to listen to others talk about their perspectives, you’re welcome to join the conversation.

  1. I understand your curiosity about white chocolate! It might seem puzzling, but let me explain. White chocolate does melt, but it behaves a bit differently than dark or milk chocolate. You see, chocolate contains cocoa butter, which has a melting point around body temperature. White chocolate also has cocoa butter, along with sugar and milk solids. The reason white chocolate might seem slower to melt is because it has more cocoa butter and less cocoa solids. Cocoa butter has a higher melting point than cocoa solids. So, when you heat white chocolate, the cocoa butter needs more time to melt completely compared to other types of chocolate. In my experience, I’ve noticed that if you melt white chocolate gently over low heat and stir it continuously, it will eventually become smooth and creamy, just like other chocolates. So, while it might take a little patience, white chocolate does melt—it just requires a bit of extra care!
