Yes, you can make whatever you like with tempered chocolate. Just ensure that the chocolate is real chocolate and not compound chocolate by checking the ingredients for cocoa butter or may be listed as cocoa solids, depending on location. Cadbury Dairy Milk is fine, and what I used myself – you can see I used that in my photos.

Just ensure when tempering that your chocolate doesn’t get too hot. If you dip your finger into the melted chocolate and it feels hot, it has been overheated. If it feels warm like just above body temperature, you’re good to start the seeding process. It might take a few tries to get the hang of but once you get the hang of it, it will become easier.

I hope that helps. I’d love to see what you create. Feel free to tag me on my social media accounts with your creations. Good luck. 🙂

Yes, you can use the same method here to temper dark, milk and white chocolate successfully. I’ve tried this with all, and no problems. However, with white chocolate, make sure you buy a good quality bar as some white chocolate bars are named ‘chocolate’ when really it isn’t chocolate at all! Crazy huh?

If the ingredients at the back of the specify cocoa butter (sometimes known as cacao solids in certain parts of the world), then you should be good to go. Chocolate is only real chocolate when it contains cocoa butter. Cheap chocolates use vegetable fats instead of cocoa butter which makes them compound chocolate or candy coating (like candy melts and chocolate chips).

i hope that helps. Good luck with your chocolates. 🙂

To check, you can always look closely at the chocolate to see if it has a glossy sheen and has a crisp snap when you break it before melting.

I’ve used this method on lots of different types of chocolate from cheaper supermarket own brand chocolate to more expensive high cocoa butter type chocolate – works fine for me!

I hope that helps. Good luck.

Thank u so much!

I’ve worked with chocolate before and never could get it to set right or have the finish I needed it to, and now it’s obvious what I’ve been doing wrong. I used this method to dip some coconut macaroons and they came out great today, so thank you!
