With bars as a guide, layers are slabbed to a uniform thickness for later precoating, cutting, dipping, or enrobing.
Slabbing is the process of creating a layer of chocolate of uniform thickness that can be precoated, cut, and dipped or enrobed. As with examples throughout this book, the confectioner uses metal bars to create a frame, which is then filled with the material that will be the center. The advantage of using bars, rather than other types of frames, is that they can be adjusted to fit different batch sizes.
