I just remembered I have tried the dark cocoa ones, actually, not the regular. Wonder if mint makes it better?
I hear Merckens brand is tastier, but I need to be able to use my 50% off coupons to buy several different bags!
I think I am going to have to dress up these chocolates with some candy bar mix ins perhaps.
Voila...VERY tasty molded chocolates! The peanut butter ones certainly enhance the taste of the Wilton chocolate.
White chocolate mixed with Heath is yummy, too! And so is white chocolate with peanut butter. And white chocolate with dark chocolate.
I have a gas range. I placed 3 metal bowls on top of a few inches of water in 3 different pots. The bowls formed a pretty good seal around the top of the pots. Once the water simmered, all I had to do was stir, stir stir and the candy melted SO easily. The peanut butter ones especially! The premium dark chocolate ones took the longest to melt and I actually had to add about a tsp of crisco to that one to get it smooth.
I've scorched candy melts in the microwave and also had it look like seized chocolate (although there was no water in the microwave.) That method doesn't work for me!
After the candy was melted, I turned off the burners and covered the pots with clean tea towels while the mold was in the freezer. I was able to refill the mold a couple of times without turning the burners back on. The metal bowls really held the heat well!
heywife, that sounds yummy.
