Well, I'm having all kinds of problems today. I dipped my bon-bons in white choc, being careful of temp and they are cracking. I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions?

Are the bonbons cold or frozen? Sometimes chocolate will crack when warm chocolate is applied to cold items. You need to add 2 tablespoons of Paramount Crystals per pound of chocolate to avoid this.

I have already added the paramount crystals & that didn't work. The choc I'm using must have been old when I bought it because I've had nothing but problems with it. I've made a lot of candy & never had this happen b/4. thanks for reply.

I'm not sure of the ingredients but they look like white choc slivers. You add them to candy melts if they need to be thinned.
