Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use liquid milk instead of milk powder?
Unfortunately, you can't use liquid milk instead of the goat milk powder, as the water in the milk will ruin the chocolate (and cause it to clump).
Where can I find whole goat milk powder?
I get my goat milk powder from Mt. Capra, and really love the quality. You can use this link and the coupon code "RIBEYERACH" for a discount at Mt. Capra.
Can I replace whole goat milk powder with whole cow milk powder?
Yes, absolutely! As long as its whole milk powder, it will work.
Can I use any other sweeteners instead of raw honey?
Yes! Maple syrup, coconut sugar, or even cane sugar should work just fine. You may have to adjust the amount of sweetener to taste. Personally, I haven't tried making this with zero calorie sweeteners (such as allulose, stevia, or monkfruit), as I'm not a big fan of them. But feel free to experiment with it!
Why cacoa powder instead of cocoa powder?
Personally I like using cacao powder, as it is much less processed than cocoa powder. Taste wise, the result will be very similar. So you can definitely substitute cocoa powder if you'd like.
Can I add any other flavors to the goat milk chocolate?
Yes, of course! You can add a few drops of peppermint extract for a mint flavor, or even some dried raspberries for a fruity addition. Get creative with it and experiment to see what you like the best!
What if I don't have a "double burner"?
No problem! Use a "makeshift" one. Personally I just add some water to a stainless pot, then add a glass bowl on top (where I melt the cocoa butter). Make sure the water from the pan isn't touching the glass bowl. Turn the heat on medium.
Will the heat from the cocoa butter ruin the raw properties of the honey?
Not if you remove it from the heat right at the melting point! If you remove it right away, it will be able 100 degrees. This will not ruin the raw properties of your honey. If you're concerned about this, just use a thermometer to measure the temp before mixing the ingredients.
How do I store the chocolate?
Store it at room temperature in a glass container or plastic bag. It will stay good for months, but you'll likely eat them much more quickly than that!

Where did you buy your silicon molds?
The molds I have are from amazon. They have lots of cute shapes available, but I loved this honeycomb mold because the chocolate is made with honey! Most molds on amazon are very affordably priced.
