Merckens’ range of edible chocolate products taste just as great as ordinary chocolate and save you time and effort.
Tempering and melting chocolate can scare people off using chocolate for fear of failure, but with Merckens, the compound melting chocolate, there really is absolutely nothing to worry about. Getting the temperature of your chocolate just right and then keeping it there long enough is sure tricky, but thankfully compound chocolates such as Merckens are not made with pure cocoa butter - which you MUST temper. Instead, the compound melting chocolate still delivers the great melting chocolate taste, but is so much easier to melt because you don't have to temper it.
Essentially, Merckens are a delicious alternative to using regular chocolate without the fuss. White and coloured confectionary candy coatings combine sugar, milk and vegetable oil. They are easy to melt and if a thinner coating is desired, paramount crystals may be added. If adding flavours or colours, you can use a concentrated flavour or an oil-based flavour.
They come in a wide variety of colours, such as red, yellow, blue, green, orange, pink, brown, white, peach and royal blue. Merckens chocolates also come in a variety of flavours too, including vanilla, peanut butter and butterscotch to name just a few.
Merckens candy melts are perfect for dipping cake pops, making chocolates with moulds, smothering cookies, using with chocolate transfer sheets, and so on. They are great for kids to use too and provide endless fun for creating yummy treats for the whole family.
