What is the difference between Chocolate and Candy Melts?

Tina - from Lufkin, TX

Candy Melts are a confectionery coating – that means they are a candy made using a different type of fat than cocoa butter. They are convenient wafers made of sugar, milk solids, vegetable oils, flavorings and colors. The Light Cocoa, Dark Cocoa and Dark Cocoa Mint-Flavored Candy Melts also contain cocoa powder. Candy Melts taste delicious but don't require the careful melting procedures of chocolate.
