Nama Chocolate 日本生巧克力(生 チョコレート)

My first encounter with nama chocolate was the one from Royce. It was smooth, velvety, melt in the mouth and  irresistibly good. I can't tell you how much I was addicted to it. Every single cube of chocolate was so precious that I tried to push it to a corner of the fridge, hoping that everyone would have forgotten about it , so that I can have it all for myself (my secret, heh)!

To 'redeem' myself from my selfish act, I had spent some time figuring out how to make nama chocolate. The quality of the chocolate used is crucial, because that will pretty much determine the taste of your nama chocolate. So, don't waste your effort, pick a good quality one!

Nama Chocolate

Nama Chocolate

  • 150g semisweet chocolate chips (use a good quality chocolate)
  • 50g whipping cream
  • 15g butter
  • cocoa powder for dusting
Cooking Directions

  1. Line a 4.5" x 4.5" baking dish with parchment paper (the height of your chocolate will depend on the size of your baking dish).
  2. In a pan (make sure the pan is completely dry), add whipping cream, chocolate chips and butter.
  3. Cook over low heat (the chocolate may separate from oil under high heat) and keep stirring until the chocolate chips dissolved and well combined.
  4. Pour the mixture into the baking dish.
  5. Keep refrigerate until firm for about 4-5 hours.
  6. Remove the chocolate from baking dish. Warm a knife (can warm it with hot water, but make sure to dry the knife completely before cutting) and cut the chocolate into cubes.
  7. Sprinkle cocoa powder on top of the chocolate.

Notes and Troubleshoot
The measurement that I have is based on Hershey semisweet chocolate chips, and Emborg whipping cream. A different brand of ingredient might result in slightly different consistency. After refrigerated, if the end product became too soft, melt it again and add more chocolate. Likewise, if the product became too hard, cracky, or lumpy, melt it again and add more whipping cream.

In the case where your chocolate seize (happens if the bowl or pan not completely dry), or separate (when the chocolate overheated, the oil separated from the chocolate), don't be dismay yet, read here to find out how to salvage it.
