Compound chocolate is so easy! Compound chocolate substitutes the two main ingredients found in real chocolate. Instead of chocolate liquor, it has cocoa powder and replaces cocoa butter with an oil. This means it will set just fine without tempering it. Simply melt it and dip whatever you’d like in it. This type of chocolate is great for making chocolate-covered strawberries or coating your caramel apples.
