Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet M&M's | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

Nasıl Yapılır ve Stil

Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make gourmet M&M's. M&M's are available in just about every color known to man, but there is one color that is objectively the best: green. Scientists have puzzled over this curiosity since the inception of M&M's in 1941. MIT Professor of Cognitive Sciences Dr. Bertrand Mathers has dedicated the entirety of his postdoctoral studies to this conundrum, labeling it the Green M&M Dilemma. With the dedicated assistance of researcher Loretta Marshall, Mathers has finally unveiled his ultimate theory on the subject. “After more than fifty years of sleepless nights, proposed and rejected ideas and quite a few cavities,” Dr. Mathers read from a lectern at an August 15, 2019 press conference, “My life’s work has finally reached its culmination. I have found the solution to the Green M&M Dilemma.” Dr. Mathers, never one to skimp on dramatics, spun around to face a chalkboard covered by a red velvet curtain. Pulling it aside, he revealed his grand solution: ‘The color green is the best color, so therefore green M&M’s are the best M&M’s.’ A stunned silence in the crowd was quickly following by a standing ovation lasting over five minutes. Finally, as the applause died down, Dr. Mathers, red-cheeked and clutching a bottle of celebratory champagne, added: “And now we begin our studies into why blue M&M’s are definitely the next best M&M’s!”

    Please, for the love of all that's holy, re-create the WWF ice cream bars. They haven't made them in like a decade and I miss them soo much. This would be a recipe I'd actually re-create if the recipe is given. Please, Claire and BA...bring back our childhoods!

    So the candy pans polish the candy like a rock tumbler. So constant rotation and contact with the other m&ms is whats smooths them. I bet that the peanut m&ms are coated flat and put into the pans and the coating is added slowly and the rotation is what smooths the chocolate and later the candy coating.

    If you want the color coating to be more smooth and less gloppy looking, add dabs of white!! It makes the paint more opaque and creamier! I learned this from painting. Yellow paint is very translucent, so when you add white it’s opaquer and you can get a cleaner coat on it!

    Claire! It's not a "design flaw," it's a FEATURE. Also, may I suggest purchasing a rock tumbler and some wax for buffing? It's my understanding that that's how they make candies shiny on the outside.

    95 degrees is too hot for tempered chocolate. It ruins the temper. Should be ~88 degrees, especially with milk chocolate in the mix. Also, learn to table chocolate and then keep it in a warmer. It'll save you time and frustration!
