Air Delight Aero Chocolate Bar Recipe

how to make air delight aero chocolate at home

Chocolate with bubbles of nothing mixed through, sounds easy right? I did several experiments with different methods before we got this to work. But the results were worth it, beautifully bubbly chocolate.

Bubbly Chocolate Experiment 1:

    I’m a recent convert to your channel and I absolutely love it.

    I tried to make this today but I had a major problem in that most of the chocolate got stuck in the cream dispenser.

    We’re vegan so I was using 70% cocoa dark chocolate

    What do you think I was wrong?


    • try lubricating the inside of the dispenser with oil first as it would be rough inside the canister and is often used for much simpler things like cream and not complicated thick chocolate- also try making you rown chocolate using coconut oil and coconut milk powder as this homemade stuff also has less sugar and is often looser when in melted stage

    can’t wait to try this! Do you perhaps have an amazon link or similar to freeze dried cocoa butter? I can’t find any that specify they’re freeze dried, or am I being dense? Just wondering how you cut the bars so square in the video? I’m hoping to get them quite regular 😀 Thanks

    I too am from Australia and wondering if all cocoa butters are freexe dried?
    Do you recommend a specific brand?
    Help would be greatly appreciated,
    Many thanks,

    • Hi Amy, no most cocoa butter that you buy is not freeze dried. The one that I use is by callebaut and you can order it from savour in Melbourne

    Is there a substitute for freeze-dried cocoa butter? Like a technique or an ingredient. I live in a place that freeze-dried cocoa butter is something that isn’t easily accessible.

    • Hi Kristal, in this recipe I am using the freeze dried cocoa butter for two things. ! to thin it down and 2 to temper it. You can use any cocoa butter to thin it down (doesn’t have to be freeze dried) and then use a different method for tempering – this post will help with that…

  7. We can use pipping bag instead vaccum pump container??wats the use of shaking in vaccum pump container??

  8. Can I use luiqid green food colouring

    • Hi Amir, No liquid colouring will impact the chocolate.

  9. Hi Ann! Can I use shredded cocoa butter instead of freeze dried because I cant get hold of freeze dried cocoa butter but I can buy cocoa butter and just shred it. I really love mint aeros and they are really expensive where I live.

    • Hi Amir, Ann hasn’t tested it with shredded cocoa butter but it should work.
