FAQ

What is the best candy coating to use for melting?

Any almond bark works well. Wilton and Ghirardelli now make candy melts that work incredibly well, as well.

Why is almond bark used for melting instead of chocolate?

Chocolate has to be tempered to avoid a cloudy look. Almond bark, on the other hand is designed specifically to be melted and retain a great sheen and texture.

Is almond bark safe for people with nut allergies?

It sure is. There are actually no almonds – or any other nuts, for that matter – in almond bark.
