I'm sooo over white chocolate... HELP!!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 26
If you are using white chocolate, you have to melt it at a MUCH lower temp than milk or dark chocolate. Anything other than that will cause it to burn and/or seize (or both!) icon_confused.gif If you have a chocolate melter, use it on "warm" to melt it, otherwise it will burn.

For one package of Candy melts (13-14 ounces); 1/3 cup of light corn syrup.. melt your candy melts in a bowl in the microwave.. one minute at a time at power # 8.. check and stir every minute until smooth.. stir very well.

cool for about 10 minutes then add the corn syrup,... instantly this is thicken almost set... freeze for 15 minutes.. then knead to play dough consistency.. if U want to color, do it when it comes out of the microwave..

Some. They all melt at lower temps -- the lighter colors seem to be more prone to burning. Be aware that red seems to be the oiliest of all colors for some reason.

Here's a great thread that will help you with making fabulous modeling chocolate: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=/modules&name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=728733&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0 Mrs Mudrash is the QUEEN of modeling chocolate and her work demonstrates that.

Fondantgrl, or happyascanbee, whatever she's calling herself these days, did a nice job with the ruffling on this cake: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2105525

Here's a cake I did using modeling chocolate: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2198049 The recipe I used kept tearing at the most inopportune places so mixed some chocolate fondant with it and had no problems after that.

See if you can find the Ghirardelli white chocolate bars... they melt nicely. The chips are designed to not melt right so they retain their shape in cookies. They usually have a wax like parafin in them. I don't think that the Ghirardelli chips do, but I'd be willing to bet the nestle ones do. Lindt is another easily found brand that tastes great and should melt better for you. Always try to find it in bar form unless you are buying chocolate buttons in bulk.

White chocolate is a pain though...

No, the coloring will not affect anything except the color..
