If you are looking for a chocolate that will be easier to melt down for dipping, you can use a compound chocolate. Compound chocolates substitute 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, for candy making, a compound chocolate can be melted down and dipped, and will set up just fine. It does taste a little different. Most people can’t tell, but when tasted next to a couverture chocolate, then the difference can be seen. Gygi is proud to offer compound chocolate from top brands including Callebaut, Guittard, Merkens, and Peter's Chocolate.
