Like Ketchup for Chocolate

A couple of years ago I got interested in alternative chocolates. I wanted to create foods that were hard and shiny like chocolate, melted in your mouth like chocolate, were impeccably smooth like chocolate, but didn’t taste like chocolate. I wanted them to taste like other things – so we made mustard “chocolate” and ketchup “chocolate.”

“Ketchup chocolate sounds disgusting,” is what most people say. Yes, it does. But I’m not talking about chocolate mixed with ketchup. I’m talking about ketchup prepared in the style of chocolate –ketchup couverture. People are still suspicious.
