I have a question for all you chocolate experts - hubby went out to buy chocolate, and on the way from the store to the airport he put the bag in the trunk. He says for just 30 minutes, who knows. Anyways, the chocolate melted and resolidified, and now has this greyish layer on it. Is that still ok to use for baking, for example for the chocolate oblivion, or can I only toss it?

Any advice is appreciated.

Hi Silke,

The gray layer on the chocolate is bloom.  Although it doesn’t look very pretty you can still bake with it for sure.  Don’t throw it away.  It will definitely be fine for melting for the chocolate oblivion or any recipe where you need melted chocolate.  The bloom on the chocolate will have no effect on the taste of it.  Hope this helps you.
