Lisa, San Diego, California

this help me so much. thank you


thank you for the recipe of melting the chocolate, but I have one question will this chocolate be hard after covering my cake and place it in the fridge since I have added vegetable oil. Please advise...

Thank you Luke, will try the cocoa butter

Thank you so much for this great informative post. I melted the chocolate chips in a bowl over simmering water, added the shortening to the chips right at the start...chips melted beautifully. I dipped jumbo marshmallows on sticks and then rolled them in a couple of different toppings. They look super and the chocolate set-up nicely when I chilled them in the refrigerator. Thanks again for putting this information together.


I'm so glad to find this. I love to bake/craft unique sweets for my family but I was struggling with Wilton's melts being too soft and morsels being too hard and no good recommendations in between. Too many said "no no, never use chips" but it seemed like there could be something to add because the flavor to me is superior when using chips with far more flexibility with coloring white chips than adding liquids to already soft candy melts. This ratio was *perfect* and so far, so good. I was able to use Crisco and swipe it in with the morsels first to coat them which negates the ashy grains instantly and seemed to protect them from melting too quickly (probably in my mind by hey, sometimes that works as well!). This was for straight chocolate candy/popsicles so I'll be trying this with cake pops because I always found the other dips out there just too soft to be good.

I should add, I use the Chocolatiers and Wilton's Chocolate melting system so I'm not sure if this made the difference in being able to stir the Crisco right in or not since it goes slooooooow to melt. I have 4 boys and double boilers and microwaves can't always be watched they way the should for it to be proper.


Informative article, thankyou.

Seized Chocolate

Hello there, I have a problem when I try to melted my chocolate and when I add some nuts to mix it will be set very quick when I try to divide it. The solution I want is, it is need to put some vegetable oil in the chocolate to prevent it set quickly? Or did you have any others solution can solve this problem?

Thank you so much for your tips to keep it warm,it was very helpful. Sorry for late reply,now was no more problem when I working with chocolate. ;)

Kuala, Malaysia

Thank you so much for your prompt response. I was trying to make a recipe easy for tempering-shy users, but I think they'll just have to go for it because the chocolate, although a filling, must be completely firm.
