Any of you white chocolate lovers? If so, I have some news for ya! White Chocolate is not chocolate

What makes chocolate chocolate is cacao powder, but white chocolate does not actually contain any cacao beans.

So what is white chocolate made of? 

- cacao butter

- milk solids

- sugar

- milk fat

- lecithin

Therefore, the only difference between white and regular (milk & dark) chocolate is simply cacao beans.
