I tried making my own chocolates yesterday.  They look and taste good, but start melting the moment I take them out of the fridge, and eating them is very messy.  I'm hoping someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong.  We made them with the recipe that came with the products (but I don't think we were too carefull with the measurements):

3 tbsp coco butter
1 tbsp coconutfat
5 tbsp cocopowder
2 tbsp agave juice

Melt the fat and butter.  Mix in the rest.  Add any flavoring might want.  Pour in to forms and refrigerate.

I went to a chocolate demonstration once, and they talked a lot about tempering, but the recipe didn't mention it.  Could that be what we are doing wrong?
