Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Chocolate-flavored candy coating can be used instead of the vanilla coating. Or make two batches—one of each!
  • Candy coating, also called confectionary coating, is used for preparing and dipping candy. Whether left white or tinted pastel, candy coating melts and sets easier than chocolate. Look for candy coating in the baking aisle of the store.
