Dipping Candy Into Chocolate

by Diane

What's the secret to dipping candy into chocolate?

I made some candy that I rolled and put into the refrigerator to set. Then I "dipped" them in chocolate to cover them.

What a mess!!! I tried using all types of things to hold the candy ball to dip into the chocolate.

Help!!! What does everyone else use (that works)?

Hi Diane,

I can't help but laugh as I recall my earliest attempts at making chocolate dipped candy! It IS a challenge, isn't it?!

They actually make special chocolate dipping tools. You can get them at Candyland Crafts. But I've used toothpicks, skewers, and forks, depending on the type and size of items/candy being dipped.

Those makeshift tools are not necessarily a perfect solution, but once you start getting the hang of it, you can get a rhythm going.
