The two primary ingredients in couverture chocolate are chocolate liquor and cocoa butter. Unlike other types, this chocolate requires tempering to melt it down. Assuming you are new to tempering, it is slowly melting the chocolate, followed by cooling to obtain and preserve a shiny texture. Couverture chocolate can quickly turn white without tempering, an aspect referred to as blooming. It is called real chocolate because it melts more evenly than regular chocolate and has a better flavor. Being real chocolate, couverture chocolate is relatively easy to order online.
