Title: Process for manufacturing chocolate compositions containing water

Abstract: A chocolate composition and water are combined by preparing a water-in-oil emulsion and adding a molten chocolate composition to and mixing it with emulsion so that upon mixing, destruction of the emulsion substantially is avoided and so that the emulsion and chocolate composition are mixed to obtain a chocolate mass in which the water of the emulsion has a form of droplets distributed in a fatty phase of the chocolate mass to obtain a water-droplet-containing chocolate mass product and in which the water may be in an amount of up to 40% by weight.
