The short answer is chocolate enrobing is the art of coating fillings and all kinds of confectionary with chocolate.. to "enrobe" in chocolate.
The long answer is "enrobing" is a process that involves covering or coating a confection or snack with chocolate. An "enrobed chocolate" is typically when the center of the chocolate is made first and is then fully coated in a thin layer of chocolate.
Traditionally, the enrobing or coating process was often done manually by hand dipping the filling, confection or snack in tempered chocolate. This manual process can be slow and cumbersome.
As demand for chocolate-coated sweets increased, it became impractical or impossible to manually keep up with production demand. That is when "enrobing machines" entered the picture and changed everything!!
A chocolate enrobing machine can do this job much faster and more accurately. Using a belt system to pass the center or confection under a curtain of tempered chocolate to quickly create a chocolate covering.
A chocolate enrobing machine allows ease of production for small and large businesses and helps to establish automated production of chocolate truffles, coated chocolates or confections.
