Whole Buttermilk Powder

This is a spray dried, whole butter milk powder that is a really interesting variation on classic milk chocolate.  You might expect it to be sour but instead if leads this extra depth of flavor that I find really satisfying.

I have a page for the Milk Chocolate Recipe I use quite a bit.  It works just fine with this Buttermilk powder.  It gives full directions. If you use the following ratios (a little different from the recipe below), you can make a smaller, slightly different batch of 48% milk chocolate. 

  • 8 oz Roasted Cocoa nibs (16%)
  • 16 oz Cocoa butter (32%)
  • 8 oz Butter Milk powder (16%)
  • 18 oz sugar (36%)

This Butter Milk Powder will also work quite nicely for a White Chocolate.

For those drinking this, 1 lb will make approximately 1 gallon of buttermilk.   This also translates to about 1 oz or 3 T per 8 oz of water.

Finally, I was told the Canadian import tariff on powdered milk is 243%, if you are ordering from there, you may need to take that into account.
