homemade white chocolate

I'm trying to only use soy free chocolate and I was curious if anyone had a good white chocolate recipe that creates decent white chocolate.

Not manty recipies out there.

Basically, you need cocoa butter, milk powder, cream powder, and sugar. Tiny amount of vanilla--1/2%, and most companies use a tiny amount of soy lecethin-1/2%., thats half of one percent. The lecethin, in small amounts acts as a thinning agent--it mimics the addition of almost 10%cocoa butter. Obviously you can use cocoa butter instead.

Thing is, none of the ingredients will dissolve in cocoa butter, they are only water soluable. Chocolate mnfctrs use a milling process and then a "conching"process to mill the sugar and milk powders super fine. Pretty elaborate and expensive equipment, and I don't know of any small, countertop equivelent.

Hope this helps

@lazar89, The OP wanted to know if they could make the white chocolate itself, not for recipes using white chocolate. Also, this forum is for pros only......if you're not a pro you should refrain from posting. Thank you!

aren't there soy free chocolates produced? I haven't looked for awhile but I would imagine that the labor to produce would negate the cost of the chocolate.

Following the thread as I get some pretty specific allergy sufferers walking in the doors
