Chocolate Panning

A well-developed and precisely executed chocolate panning technique can provide one of the fastest, most efficient ways to provide a chocolate coating to a product. The art of chocolate panning involves the creation of a layer of chocolate surrounding the center, then dusted or polished to a high gloss.
