Candy Melts what are they

An American recipe.

Just been looking at a recipes for Cake pops and they say you need Candy melts for the deco.


What would Candy Melts be in the UK?

Have made them with chocolate topping before and this time want to do something different.

Thanks

Candy Melts.

They are called Candy Melts in the UK too, but basically they are packs of flavoured cooking chocolate shaped in buttons.

Lakeland do them in about 5 flavours I think, maybe 4. I can remember white choc, milk choc, strawberry, toffee, I assume there is dark choc too.

I would think they are the small icing shapes which you can get in the Vahine section Sue, other than that, if they are what James says, why not just use choccy buttons ?

Candy melts

You can get them from Hobbycraft & from various online stores however I have found Hobbycraft to be the cheapest. They have them in 6-7 colours, if they haven't got the colour you need you can buy little pots of coloured paste made by the same company to colour the white ones.

Hope this helps, I do think they give the best coverage for cake pops.

Thanks Elaine and Lydster,

Elaine had a look in Leclerc this morning couldn't find them, but then our Leclerc is really basic will have to go into the city.
Had a google and found one american cookery site that said, " they are not made from real chocolate, they are made from sugar,milk solid, veg oils, flavoring, colours plus cocoa for the chocolate flavors. Will have a look online to find some good priced one. Can't look anymore on Lakeland it makes me home sick for the UK.
