What is everyone’s favorite thing? Chocolate, of course. Everyone loves things that are chocolate and learning to cook with this ingredient is fun and easy. Whether you want to learn to cook better chocolate chip cookies, or learn to make elegant designer chocolates to impress all of your friends - there are classes, lessons, and dedicated schools available to teach you to do just this. Chocolate can be added to almost any dessert, so the different recipes you can learn to cook are endless. The skill you may want to learn the most may be making chocolate candies.

There are some rather intricate details that should be learned to make chocolate that stays clear and firm when finished - that you'll surely learn when you take a cooking class. There is something called bloom that can appear when chocolate is melted. This is the white filmy material that is unattractive and makes your creation look less than professional. To prevent this, chocolate must be tempered. This is best learned in a chocolate making class where you can observe what the exact process looks like. Although it sounds rather complicated learning this process is not hard when you see how it is done. This is one of the most important things to learn as it can be used in all processes of making chocolate candy. Making chocolate macaroons is also something that you can be envied for, once you learn the technique.

French macaroons, which should not be confused with coconut macaroons, are one of the hottest desserts trends around. The process of making them is also best done while observing someone who is an expert in their creation. Although they are ultimately easy to make, watching the specific techniques to create these is important. Macaroons are two crispy meringue type cookies filled with a frosting or candy filling. They are well known in France and are making their way to America. Knowing how to make them for weddings and special events would be a great talent to have.
