I have led you astray people
I recently posted, with much enthusiasm I might add, a recipe for thinning dipping chocolate. I was so happy to have found it. YA-UNTIL I TRIED IT!!! I don't usually make a habit of posting things I haven't tried but I had actually found this recipe recommended through another blog and it was such a great find to me I wanted to share it before V-day and I had full intentions of using it myself to make chocolate covered cinnamon bears for my hubby (but I didn't get them bought before the store closed for the weekend) so I didn't actually get to the recipe until today. I hope you haven't wasted a bunch of your time and money trying this based on my recommendation alone. The recipe is junk-it doesn't work. I didn't look close enough myself otherwise I would have seen it's flaws. I got a huge blob of greasy chocolate that wouldn't stick to a cinnamon bear if I tried. I had to resort back to my old method of plain old chocolate chips (though I thinned them a bit with some shortening). Sorry if I have led anyone astray or wasted any ones time. And while I am here-does anyone know the secret to smooth and shiny dipping chocolate? I am stumped once again.
