chocolate covered frozen bananas


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Thanks for the tip, but I want to dip the bananas into my semisweet nondairy Belgian chocolate. I guess the only way to decide is to try it and see what happens.

Is it necessary to temper the chocolate for chocolate covered frozen bananas since they are kept in the freezer anyhow after they are dipped?

Wilton Color Mist


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Hi Cathy, I used the spray on just a few pieces of chocolate. You must not spray too close to the confection and you need to just spray lightly with a sweeping motion. It doesn't smell particularly good when you first spray, but it dries quickly (give it a minute) and then leaves a nice sparkly shine on the chocolate. It has no after taste (at least not on the few pieces I used it on) and it does not come off when you wipe your finger across the chocolate. Remember I only used it on a few pieces. I will be experimenting with it more in the future. Let me know how it works for you. Esther

Rev1 Problems - won´t melt!


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

I have the Sinsation. It melts and tempers about 1.5 lbs. of chocolate at a time. After about 30-40 minutes I find that I need to melt a small amount of chocolate and re temper the batch because it becomes over-tempered, becoming too thick to work with. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Clay, for responding to my question even though I posted it in the wrong place. I want to use Color Mist on my chocolates after they are released from the mold. I'll try it and let you know how it worked. Esther

chopping up a block of chocolate

Thanks for the great suggestion. By the way, since I have been using a hammer on my chipper, the wooden handle began to split so I taped it up very well to preserve it as long as possible.

Thanks for the response. I also bang the block on the cement after I put it into two large plastic bags. Thanks for the idea of sharpening the chipper. I'll try that.

Posted in: Recipes

Does any have a good recipe for making nondairy caramels that you could also dip in chocolate?

chopping up a block of chocolate


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Is there a simpler way to chop up a 10lb. block of chocolate other than using a chocolate chipper and a small hammer?
