Cake pops - I HATE white chocolate...Do you? - Page 2

Yep.

Warning: Choco-snobbery ahead.

I dislike *all* melts/summer coatings. I get disgruntled when melts/ summer coatings are labeled as "chocolate." I'm also not a huge fan of white chocolate. I thought I didn't like any white chocolate until I accidentally tried some Green & Black's. It's excellent, though ivory colored with vanilla bean specks. I've found that El Rey brand chocolate tends to make thinner coatings than other brands, but I usually only use dark or semi-sweet, so I'm unsure about the consistency of their milk or white choc.

Disclaimer: Just my preferences, and it's one of the few foods or things I'm snobbish about. I'll buy clothes from WalMart, and generic food brands for most things. But chocolate....that's a whole different level.

Of course, the cost can be prohibitive, so I don't eat or make them very often. That's probably a good thing for my thighs!

speaking of the cracking..I followed the instructions of letting your cake pops warm up just a tad, when taking out of freezer so they aren't too cold for the chocolate to crack..SO, I dipped mine today and they were great, BUTTTT,,I was also told to not put them in freezer once, dipped,,just keep out for room temp/ refridgerate..SO,,I left them to dry up at room temp and as they looked soo beautiful..cracking occurred a 1/2 hour later I noticed!!!!!!!!!!!!! So,,after I followed all of the dang instructions on how to properly,,I still get the cracking and NO, the cake pops were NOT extremely cold when dipped and my chocolate was cooled down a little prior to dipping so my pop won't break.. So frustrated..AND I do add some shortening to chocolate for a smoother dip,,so could the shortening cause this?? OR what else?? I don't understand,,and so I dipped them AGAIN and it helped,,but why on earth does this happen in first place after all I explained?? I LOVE doing these,,but hated the outcome with cracking..errrr icon_cry.gif

I don't have a problem with it not sticking - I don;t like how it yellows after drying hard. And not even a prety yellow - a dingy stale color... yuck!
