THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHOCOLATE, CANDY MELTS & COMPOUND CHOCOLATE
In my recipe card below you will see that I use candy melts. I use them because I don’t need to temper my chocolate and I can buy them already coloured. If I used white chocolate I would have to temper it so it wouldn’t melt at room temperature and also buy special food dye to colour it. So using candy melts makes it quicker and cheaper to make this recipe. But you can definitely make these with white chocolate if you want to temper it and dye it.
If you are not a baker you may find the terms, chocolate, candy melts and compound chocolate a little confusing. So here is a brief summary of what these three types of chocolates are.
All chocolate contains varying amounts of sugar, cocoa butter, full cream milk powder, cocoa liquor, lecithin and cocoa. When chocolate is melted if it is not tempered before setting it will melt at room temperature and it wont have a crisp snap or shiny appearance.
Candy melts do not contain cocoa. The cocoa butter is replaced with vegetable fats and in exchange the chocolate doesn’t need to be tempered after being melted. Candy melts can be bought in many different colours so you don’t need to dye them.
Compound chocolate is the same as candy melts. The cocoa butter has been replaced with vegetable fats so tempering isn’t needed.
