      A convenient light cocoa candy product, much more convenient than real chocolate

      12 oz bag of light cocoa candy melts. Certified Kosher.

      Wilton candy melts are useful for many different projects. Some ways that I use them are for dipping cake pops, molding into candies to use as cupcake toppers, and drizzling on top of desserts such as cake pops, brownies, and cookies.

      The light cocoa shade is excellent to use for fall desserts, as well as coating truffles / truffle pops. I like to make caramel apple cake pops with the light cocoa candy melts used as the "caramel" part. Also, you can make basic pops decorated with jimmies or non-pareils and they are always a big hit. Light cocoa candy melts are especially useful when dipping chocolate truffles and/or strawberries (or other fruits) in a chocolatey coating. You do not have to temper the chocolate, which is ultra convenient since tempering chocolate takes a lot of patience and control of elements such as heat, as well as a lot of stirring and chopping. Although, you don't get quite the same quality as if you were to use genuine chocolate that had been tempered. Still, the light cocoa candy is a crowd pleaser.

      I do find I need to thin out Wilton candy melts in general, with melted vegetable shortening and/or vegetable oil. In general, I have had significantly better luck with Make N Mold brand milk chocolate flavored candy melts, because they seem to thin out more readily.

      Also, be sure to use them in a place that isn't humid, otherwise the candy will seize up and have lumps in it.
