3  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Need Help with Chocolate!!! on: December 23, 2008 02:59:01 AM
YES!!! Hershey's chocolate chips is what I used!  We just had a huge discussion about chocolate chips at work yesterday.  While folks were licking more sticky chocolate off their fingers (even though I'd put paraffin in it), I talked about my chocolate disasters this weekend.  Someone said they thought all hershey's products were different. The consensus at work is that the reason Hershey's is Walmart's cheapest brand of chocolate chips was because hershey's had changed their recipe in order to be competitive.  I guess they're fine for cookies, but not for what I needed them for.  DANG...now I have to taste test several varieties of chocolates in preparation for next year...SUCKS to be me  Wink

The first time around (the disaster) I used almond bark with chocolate chips added ( I had a partial bag and just threw them in).  I did them again last night with a bag of chocolate chips and some paraffin.  So far, so good.  But, the first go around looked beautiful at first too.  We'll see what happens by Chrismtas! 

I think that chocolate chips are softer than they used to be.  Maybe I need to be on a search for harder chips for dipping. 

Has anyone ever used the chocolate melts available at craft stores that look like big hershey's kisses that have been squashed?  They usually are available in a wide variety of colors.  I've seen them, but never tried them.

Anyway, Thanks for all the advice!

Thanks Pimper...they went in the garbage...ALL 4 lbs!!!  I made these last weekend and looked at them again today to find that the peanutbutter balls had shrunk considerably after they thawed.  I don't know if condensation occurred when they thawed or what, but I had a mess.  Anyway, back to the drawing board.  I totally agree with your statement about parafin...that's why I didn't use it, but I guess I will second go around!

PLEASE tell me someone's online and paying attention to posts without pictures!!!
I am having trouble with my chocolate being too soft.  I made buckeyes (peanutbutter balls dipped in chocolate) and the chocolate "shells" are a soft gooey mess!  Any suggestions?

Just wondering what you're doing with Mrs. Paula?  My mom LOVES Paula and I was thinking I could use this image too.  Immediately an apron came to mind, but that seems a little too obvious.  What's your brilliant idea?
