Melt some cocoa butter, mix in sugar and black cocoa.
The result should be grey or black.
This isn't a recipe, just an outline of one... I'm deliberately
not specifying the proportions of the ingredients, nor even
say whether you should dip things in the stuff, or mold and
or maybe temper it, etc.
Whether you add other flavors, such as vanilla extract, or
milk solids, or chocolate extract, or natural cocoa, or
dutched cocoa, etc, is up to you.
If you haven't got any cocoa butter, you might substitute
chocolate. Almond bark also might work, though I
wouldn't call the result chocolate.
Remember, Halloween is a mere 10 weeks away, so it's not
too soon to start planning some creepy confections.
Gray-ish chocolate is common
It is the result of not "tempering" the cooling chocolate correctly. [Vernon, Aug 23 2016]
||Isn't this the recipe for making...chocolate?
||No, it seems to be recipe for making chocolate-
||Here's a recipe for making purple chocolate: melt some
cocoa butter, add sugar and purple emulsion. Done! Other
colours are available. In fact any colour of chocolate is
available using this simple method.
||This would appeal to extraterrestrials. Which shade of grey,
though? Pantone Cool Grey 5, or Pantone Warm Grey 5?
||[Ian] If you're making chocolate for extraterrestrials, it
should match their skin tone -- grey for Gray aliens, etc.
||[xenzag], black cocoa is a type of dutched cocoa, which
just happens to be black. So, the result will taste like ...
perfectly ordinary chocolate. If more than one fifth of
your resulting candy is black cocoa, it could be legally
classified as "chocolate" in any country which regulates
||I can't imagine that whatever purple coloring you are
thinking of, might like taste like chocolate or be legally
classified as such.
||[Vernon], Chocolate bloom is not my goal here. Obviously
it could happen with gray chocolate, but that's not the
point of this idea.
||Why do you belive that mixing cocabutter cocoa and sugar would be grey? In every case I've seen the result is brown.
