Can I use chocolate chips instead of candy melts?
Hi Jessie- I usually use the candy melts, but you can use chocolate chips. You do need to add some shortening to it (I'd use Crisco), otherwise it'll get lumpy. The candy melts already have oil added to them, chocolate chips don't have any oil added. ... You can use Wilton Candy Melts or a bag of chocolate chips.
Can I use baking chocolate chips for dipping?
High quality chocolate (or baking chocolate chips) tastes less processed, melts easier, and really helps give the strawberries a nice beautiful coat after dipping. I usually use Ghirardelli baking chips, or Baker's Baking Chocolate and I'm always pleased with the quality and price.
Can I Melt chocolate chips in silicone molds?
Simply melt in the microwave and either dip your treats in chocolate and set in the freezer or buy a Silicone Mold Holiday pan like we did and melt chocolate directly in the pan and then freeze to create darling treats. Then package it up in cute boxes or baggies for your favorite peeps!
Why does homemade chocolate melt?
When you melt chocolate, you change the crystal structure. If you cool it off at the right temperature, i.e., temper it, you get the "good" crystals, otherwise known as beta crystals, which allow the chocolate to retain its glossy sheen and crisp snap after it's been used as a coating.
What does adding butter to melted chocolate do?
How much butter do I add to melted chocolate? Butter helps the chocolate chips melt in a smooth and glossy liquid. It also helps make the perfect consistency for dipping and glazing!
What does adding coconut oil to melted chocolate do?
We like to combine coconut oil and melted chocolate so that the chocolate hardens faster and a little thicker. The coconut oil makes the chocolate act like a chocolate shell. It's not essential—and doesn't add much flavor at all—but we recommend it.
Why is my melting chocolate so thick?
If chocolate is overheated, it will be quite thick and lumpy. ... Chocolate is a mixture of fat (from cocoa butter) and dry particles (cocoa and sugar). When the melted chocolate comes into contact with water, the dry particles become moist and begin to stick together, quickly forming a gritty, rough mass of chocolate.
Why are my candy melts so thick?
Like any food, the consistency of melted candy can be affected by temperature, humidity and overall freshness of the candy itself. Temperature is very important when working with Candy Melts candy. A cold work surface or a cold room will cause the candy to thicken, then set.
Can I use olive oil to thin candy melts?
Don't Add Olive Oil We would like to suggest not to use olive oil in the candy melt mixture.
Why won't my cake pops stay on the stick?
Hardened candy coating acts as glue so it can be very helpful in preventing your cake pops from falling off the sticks. Before inserting your sticks into your chilled cake balls, dip the end of each stick into candy coating. I suggest inserting the stick about half way into the cake ball.
Can I Refrigerate cake pops overnight before dipping?
The freshly rolled cake pops should stay in the refrigerator for at least two hours before you dip them in melted almond bark or candy melts. This refrigeration time will ensure they are firm enough to keep their shape during the dipping and drying process. After two hours, melt a small amount of the coating.
Why are cake pops so expensive?
Cake pops are cheap in terms of ingredients, but expensive in terms of labor to make them. Bakeries make them out of leftover cake which otherwise would be thrown away, so they should be cheap. ... For consumers, it really is cheaper to pay $1.
Should you Refrigerate cake pops?
Refrigeration is not typically required for cake balls (unless you are using a perishable frosting). Refrigerating your cake balls/pops can cause condensation on the coating and this moisture will cause the coating to become sticky. Store them in a cool, dry place and they should be fine!
Why are my cake pops cracking?
The most common reason why cake pops crack is because the temperature of the cake ball and the frosting you applied to it was too great. More often than not, the coating will have been too hot and the cake ball will have been too cold, although vice versa can happen.
