CANDY HINTS BEFORE YOU START AND TIPS TO SAVE THE CHOCOLATE:
- When melting chocolate, it sometimes starts to clump of thicken into a hardened mass. This is referred to as “seizing”. Seizing can be caused by the smallest drop of moisture from a wet spoon or steam from a double boiler. Its kinda like Gremlins like that – don’t get them wet!! If this happens, there’s no need to toss out the chocolate. Mix in 1 tablespoon of shortening or vegetable oil for every 6 ounces of chocolate. Then use the correct mixture as intended. But note, if chocolate seizes due to excessive heat, it can’t be saved.
- If you want chocolate that tastes like Hershey’s, use 3 blocks of chocolate almond bark & 1 block of white! Melt together & substitute into any of the recipes!
- When you are melting it the Almond Bark will not spread. It will be important to stir it per the directions to be able to get it fully melted.
