The Guittard 25 lb. Creme Francaise 31% white cocoa butter wafers have been carefully made from bean to cocoa, crafted with generations of French artisan chocolate-making experience. With a fresh cream flavor, nutty notes, and subtle hints of citrus that create a French-style white chocolate, these wafers are made with all-natural ingredients to showcase the natural terroir and post-harvest practices. When making these wafers, Guittard only uses a proprietary blend of Fair Trade certified cocoa butters with respect to Mother Nature, transforming the natural beauty of cacao into uniform white chocolate discs.
Essential for any bakery, chocolate shop, or restaurant, cafe, and gelateria that uses the finest products, these wafers are more than an ingredient: they are the multi-dimensional element that takes your recipe to the next level. Temper these wafers to create the perfect set, snap, and shine to coat your truffles, fresh fruits, or to create chocolate masterpieces to adorn cakes or make into showpieces. Melt the wafers to use as an ingredient when creating fluffy frostings, rich ganache, silky pastry cream, or smooth ice cream. Or, roughly chop these wafers for the ultimate white chocolate chunks to fold into your batters for signature, premium baked goods.
For five generations, Guittard has been endlessly evolving their artisanal craft to bring the most flavorful, sustainable, and socially responsible chocolate to the industry. During the California Gold Rush in the mid 1800's, Etienne Guittard discovered the demand his chocolate garnered among the wealthy chocolate miners and, with his newfound passion, grew his business into a leader in the chocolate industry. Through their stewardship, Guittard has donated funding, time, and product to community projects across America, worked to continually reduce their environmental impact, and empowered their cacao growers in order to obtain a chocolate that contains optimal flavor, quality, and value. At Guittard, their chocolate not only enhances flavor profiles, but helps them unite the world through social responsibility, sustainability, and equality. It's true what they say: chocolate cures all.
