The chocolate is tempered to prevent the forming of crystals in the finished product (which will cause the surface of the chocolate to appear matte or dull). Temperatures are increased to about 115 degrees F, then the mixture is allowed to cool to about 80 degrees F. The heat is increased once more to about 88 degrees F. This whole process may be repeated several times to produce a supremely smooth texture. And that’s how chocolate is made!
