Further Information Modica’s chocolate should be dark brown and its surface might appear mottled and matte due to cocoa butter blooming. As the cocoa used to make this chocolate does not go through conching or tempering, this is absolutely normal and not an indication of bad storage or bad tempering as in other kinds of chocolate. Modica chocolate may exhibit colour variation or crystallization that looks like “cocoa butter blooming” This is a normal possible side effect of its low processed nature and the artisanal methods used to produce it. It is not an indication that the chocolate is damaged or was mis-tempered.
