White chocolate is made from cocoa butter, sugar, and milk solids, and does not contain any cocoa solids.

The origins of white chocolate are a bit unclear, but it is believed to have been invented by the Swiss chocolate manufacturer Nestle in the 1930s. The company created a white chocolate bar called "Galak" that was popular in Europe and Latin America.

However, some historians argue that white chocolate was actually first made in Europe in the 1800s, although it was not widely available or popular until much later.

In any case, white chocolate has become a popular and versatile ingredient in desserts, baking, and cooking around the world.

If you want to try your hand at making your own white chocolate, here's a basic recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cocoa butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Begin by melting the cocoa butter in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Make sure that the bowl does not touch the water.
  2. Once the cocoa butter has melted, remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the powdered sugar and powdered milk until well combined.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  4. Pour the mixture into a mold or onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and let it cool to room temperature.
  5. Once the white chocolate has cooled and hardened, it can be broken into pieces or cut into desired shapes.

Note: It's important to use high-quality ingredients when making white chocolate. Be sure to use pure cocoa butter, not vegetable oil or other substitutes, as this will affect the texture and taste of the final product. Also, be careful not to overheat the chocolate or let any water get into it, as this can cause the chocolate to seize and become grainy.
