Nestlé’s patented “tropicalized shell” ensures a chocolate bar to withstand the heat

A chocolate bar may be a sweet afternoon pick-me-up, but it’s never been the go-to choice for a picnic in the park on a hot summer day. After all, is there anything more wasteful — or disappointing — than opening up a wrapper, only to find melted chocolate soup? (Yes, actually, but you get the point.) Following the model of Mondelez International-owned Cadbury, Nestlé decided to tackle the tragedy of the melting chocolate bar and has created a temperature-tolerant solution.

As food scientist Harold McGee notes, the ideal melting point for milk chocolate, when cooking, is 104 to 113 degrees Fahrenheit, but the product will begin to melt at 93 degrees, a stifling, but customary, temperature for New York City and many other cities in the summer. McGee recommends storing chocolate at 60 to 65 degrees: in other words, cool room temperature, and definitely not outside heat.

Nestlé’s latest invention can reportedly withstand even 113-degree heat. The product features a “tropicalized shell,” which remains solid in warm weather thanks to humectant liquids, such as propylene glycol and polyethylene glycol. While these “ingredients” have been known to negatively affect the texture of the product — for instance, by creating a waxy mouth feel — Nestlé insists this problem can be evaded with low concentrations.

And while it may taste the same and solve a summer snacking problem, isn’t there something unappetizing about an ideal-for-melting ingredient that refuses to melt?

The Untold Truth Of Nestle

When it comes to massive conglomerations and corporations, Nestle is right up there at the top. They're so big that it's almost impossible to imagine: according to Forbes, they're worth around $280 billion. give or take a few billion.

When you think of Nestle, what do you think of? Candy? Nesquik? Nescafe? Childhood memories of trick-or-treating, and hoping to see all your favorite candy bars in your bag? Or, do you think of controversy? Boycotts? Some serious hate?

Any and all of the above might be pretty accurate. While Nestle has undoubtedly had a far-reaching impact on the shape of the commercial food industry, they're also highly controversial. They're definitely not all candy and sweets, and there's some seriously dark stuff in their past. and their present. And here's the thing — they own so, so much that even if you think you're doing your best to boycott them, you probably still have some of their products in your kitchen — or bathroom — right now.

Copycat Nesquik Recipe

This homemade Nesquik saved me a trip to the store (which I did not have the time for at that very moment). Also, my son was VERY happy with my hubs Copycat Nesquik Recipe and says it tastes just like the real thing.

If you are in a pinch and looking to ave yourself from purchasing overpriced Nesquik… you will want to give this recipe a try too!

You most likely have the ingredients needed for this DIY Nesquik right in your cabinets. Just Baking Cocoa, sugar and salt. That’s it! Pretty simple that even the kiddos can whip it up.

2/3 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Cocoa
Pinch of salt

Combine ingredients and store in air tight container.
Add to 2 tbsp per 1 Cup of Milk

Your family will love these Chocolate Bird Nests! They are easy to make and who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate?? These are rich, chocolatey snacks that are perfect for Spring! We found the White Chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs at the grocery store and we had to try them! I already love the regular Cadbury Eggs so I knew adding white chocolate would not disappoint. However, I had to redirect a hundred little hands away from the bowl of candy just so I could get this recipe done!

One warning though…this recipe is a little messy. My hands were covered in chocolate and peanut butter before the process was done. However, it is totally worth it. When you are forming the nests, make sure that the edges come up enough that the eggs won’t roll off the sides. These will keep for a few days, just make sure to store them in an airtight container. I also like storing them in the fridge because I like to eat them cold.

What to Serve with this Chocolate Covered No Bake Cookie Dough Bars

So, while there might not be anything you want to serve with these no bake cookie dough bars, you will need some meal ideas for before or after. I used my favorite Brownie Pan which I was able to get for $20. This pan is great because it is so versatile. I have made

For gift giving, this recipe makes four pint-size jars or two quart-size jars of cocoa mix. Each pint size jar contains eight servings of mix (quart-size =16 servings). There are multiple ways to gift this mix. I usually have extra jars around, so I often use them to give this mix as a gift. There are lots of fun ways to decorate the jars from fancy to simple. I usually take the simple route with just a bow and the gift tag tied on. I’ve also put the cocoa mix in a decorative bag and placed it in a mug with some candy canes or cocoa stirrers. My daughter made the cute gift tags to go with the mix that I am giving out this year. Print them out on card stock and tie it on the jar with ribbon or twine.

Nestlé Toll House Cake Recipe

Fluffy yellow cake dotted with chocolate chips, layered with chocolate frosting, and topped with brown sugar for a subtle crunch and that rich molasses taste you expect in a chocolate chip cookie.

Alas, time went on, my sister and I grew up and got our own places, and I moved further outside of town. Half Price Cake Mondays became a fond memory.

I don’t know what took so long, but recently I asked my husband (the chef in the family) if he could re-create the fabled Nestlé Toll House Cake.

The anticipation built all week as we bought the supplies and planned a day when we’d have time to bake.

Would the cake taste as good as I remembered?

Could it be made gluten free?

My worries were for naught — our re-creation of my treasured Nestlé Toll House Cake might just be better than the original! (Because it’s gluten free and I can eat as much as I want! Right. )

Toll House Cake Ingredients

The following ingredient amounts are per layer (there are 3 layers), so you’ll need triple the amounts shown below for the full 3-layer cake. It’s definitely a big show-stopping bakery-style cake!

If you’re making the cake for a small group, you could make one layer and frost as a smaller sized dessert.

  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

The amounts below are enough for the entire 3-layer cake.

Keep reading for more photos and instructions or click here to jump to printable recipe.

How to make Nestlé Toll House Cake

If making the 3-layer version of the cake, triple the ingredient amounts listed above.

Sift together dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients. Whisk together by hand or with a mixer, but take care not to overwork the batter.

Once wet ingredients are incorporated, slowly pour into bowl with dry ingredients, mixing as you pour.

Stir chocolate chips into batter.

Pro tip: Dust chocolate chips in flour before you add them to the batter. This light flour coating helps prevent the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom of the cake when baking.

Divide batter evenly among three circular cake pans.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F. Check with a toothpick – if it comes out clean, the cake is done. If batter sticks to the toothpick, bake for 5 additional minutes. Repeat until toothpick comes out clean.

Allow cakes to cool completely before frosting.

Put it all together:

Place the first cake layer on a large plate or cake stand. Trim the top so it is flat, then coat with chocolate frosting. Add the second cake layer and repeat.

Pro tip: Use this foolproof cake cutting method from In the Kids Kitchen to make evening out your layers a breeze!

Add the final cake layer and coat the entire cake liberally with chocolate frosting. Sprinkle the top of the cake with brown sugar and press brown sugar into the sides of the cake. This step can be messy, so place towels, newspaper, etc. under your cake stand so excess sugar is easy to collect.

Best chocolate cake recipes

We have the best chocolate cake recipes for you to bake at home. Whether you’re after a moist chocolate sponge cake recipe or a rich chocolate fudge cake, we’ve got both classic cakes and showstopping bakes to make for special occasions (take a look at our favourite chocolate birthday cake ideas).

First up, how do you make the best chocolate cake?

How do you make a chocolate sponge cake?

It’s easy to make a simple chocolate sponge cake. You just need to replace some of the flour amount with cocoa powder. Just scoop 3 tbsp. of flour from the measured amount on the basic sponge recipe and replace with 3 tbsp. cocoa powder.

Can you use drinking chocolate instead of cocoa powder?

Don’t be tempted to use drinking chocolate instead of cocoa powder. Drinking chocolate is a blend of cocoa powder and sugar and is typically only has 25% cocoa so will give you a very pale chocolate cake with not much chocolate flavour. Good cocoa powder will be 100% cocoa and nothing else so just 3 tbsp will give a cake a lovely deep chocolatey flavour.

How long does chocolate cake last?

Sponge cakes are best eaten on the same day they are made or the next day as they tend to go dry quite quickly. Chocolate fudge cakes, flourless chocolate cakes, and brownies have a higher fat content and will easily keep for 2-3 days.

How do I store chocolate cake?

It’s best to store chocolate cake in an airtight plastic container in a cool place. Avoid putting cakes uncovered in the fridge as fridges are designed to be a very low moisture environment so will dry out cakes more quickly.

How do I decorate chocolate cake?

There are loads of different ways to decorate a cake. You can make a simple shiny glace icing by adding a spoonful of cocoa powder to icing sugar and water. Try making a chocolate buttercream icing by beating icing sugar with half the amount of butter (so 200g icing sugar/100g butter) then adding cocoa powder until you get the desired level of chocolate flavour. You can make an easy chocolate ganache by combining equal amounts of chopped dark chocolate and hot cream and stirring until smooth and silky. Try our icing and cake decorating tips here.

Magic Mint Chocolate Bark

This recipe is a fun and refreshing way to enjoy the decadent duo of mint and chocolate. Swirling designs add artistic flair to this unforgettable treat.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 2/3 cups (10 ounce package ) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels
1/3 cup coarsely chopped oven roasted or toasted almonds

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Line small baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Pour morsels onto prepared baking sheet. Arrange morsels so they are touching each other in a single layer (roughly an 11 x 9-inch rectangle).
  3. Bake for 1 to 3 minutes or until morsels are shiny. Morsels will retain their shape. Remove from oven to wire rack. With tip of butter knife or wooden pick, immediately swirl morsels to create a swirled pattern.
  4. Sprinkle with nuts. Hold baking sheet 3 inches above counter and drop to settle nuts into melted morsels. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Variation: Substitute broken pretzel pieces or another nut of choice for the almonds.

Tempering in the Microwave

Tempering chocolate requires heating chocolate to a specific temperature so that the crystals in the chocolate are stabilized. Tempering is essential for chocolate candies or for coating foods in hard chocolate, such as chocolate-coated strawberries. It not only gives chocolate its glossy appearance, it helps keep it hard after cooling. Heat milk chocolate chips to 86 to 88 F and dark chocolate chips to 88 to 90 F. Heat the chips on medium at 15-second intervals, stirring in between cooking times to prevent uneven heating and scorching. When almost all of the chips have melted, give the chocolate a final stir. Like with melted chocolate, test the temperature of the chocolate with a candy thermometer.
