As a chocolate lover, you know there are big differences between dark and milk chocolate. Each kind has its own flavor, its own texture, and its own personality. Since they are so unique, these chocolates pair best with different flavors. If you’ve ever wanted to know the differences between milk and dark chocolate, this guide will help you understand each distinct flavor.
The main difference between dark and milk chocolate is that dark chocolate does not have any added milk solids. Generally, dark chocolate contains a higher amount of cocoa. This contributes to dark chocolate’s rich, deeper chocolate flavor. It is also much more bitter than milk chocolate, allowing it to pair with different flavors more easily. If you’re a dark chocolate lover, gourmet dark chocolates like delicious dark chocolate truffles or delectable dark chocolate sea salt caramels are sure to satisfy your dark chocolate cravings. If you’re a dark chocolate purist, simple, gourmet breakup chocolate paired with red wine is the ultimate after-dinner dessert.
Milk chocolate, unlike dark chocolate, is made with milk. Most milk chocolate is made from powdered, liquid, or condensed milk. Milk chocolate is generally very smooth and creamy. It doesn’t have the same dry texture as much dark chocolate has due to the milk adding elasticity. Milk chocolate is known for its ability to be paired with almost any other sweet or savory flavor. True milk chocolate lovers should taste locally-made, gourmet milk chocolate candies like milk chocolate covered pretzels and milk chocolate crabs! If you want to step up the sweetness, milk chocolate strawberry creams are a great choice as well.
