Help! Not long after I added the vanilla extract, the nice, smooth mixture curdled. No amount of whisking will mix the solid lumps back into the melted cocoa butter. What did I do wrong? What do I do now??!!
Sorry it didn't work out LcoyoteS. Is your vanilla extract alcohol-free by chance? If it is, it might contain a little bit of water which is the enemy of chocolate. If so, let me know and I'll revise the recipe.
