Can I use almond bark in place of candy melts?

My niece is allergic to wheat and peanuts, and the candy melts I find at the store are processed in the same facility as these things.

I found the most adorable recipe for cake pops that are covered in candy melts, and I want to know what I can use in place of candy melts to cover these cake pops?

I need red and blue... Can I color white almond bark and use it the same way? What about white chocolate chips?



Hi Carissa,

Yes, you can use almond bark in place of candy melts. You can also use white chocolate chips or just plain white chocolate candy bars if you can find some that are not a danger to your niece.

You can get the red and blue oil based chocolate tinting colors at Candyland Crafts if you don't have them already.

Love to see your cake pops when you get them finished. Share a photo if you can!
