I was wondering if Candy Melts are easier to use than chocolate? I get annoyed at the waste from chocolate as it starts to set half way through a project, and has to be rescued. If Candy Melts don't become so bothersome, then thats the way for me. Please could you help?

Candy Melts are easier than chocolate because they don't have to be tempered in order to harden into a nice, shiny finish. They are a lot less temperamental than chocolate. When you're working on longer projects, use a Chocolate Melting Pot to keep your Candy Melts at the perfect temperature for dipping, drizzling, or piping.
