    Using a vacuum, I think. It takes a lot of timing, but they must have machines for it - but I think they have the melted chocolate, use the vacuum on it to get air bubbles out of it and then let it set.

    I saw something similar on a cookery show at the weekend. (Pretty sure it was Saturday Kitchen - they were trying to make the perfect Chocolate Cake, so they did this bubble technique)

    They're actually the area left by the shells of the notorious chocolate maggot. They prey upon unsuspecting people who begin to question their very existence.

    A vacuum would mean a space that has no air or atmosphere though :confused: Surely it would be the opposite, they 'airate' liquid chocolate as it sets?

    I was actually wondering about this the other day too. The explanation is intriguing.

    lol surely they must pump air in rather than use a vacuum and take air out no? Surely they just heavily airate the chocy and then let it set

    I (shamefully) saw that too. I love the fact that they pointed out that they couldn't tell viewers to use the industry machinery, instead showing how to do it with a vacuum bag and a vacuum cleaner - very easy! Everyone will be doing it now(!).

    Here, this is what I was talking about:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006v5y2

    Watch it today, because tomorrow it goes away because iPlayer is like that. Watch from about 42:00 to 46:00 - that might be how it's done (only with big machinery and stuff)

    As I said, I have no idea if this is what they do for Aero's.
