I know I probably should have posted this in the candy forum, but it didn't seem to be a hoppin forum icon_confused.gif So.....I want to make chocolate seashells to go around a flip flop cake. I have the molds. I have used the wafer chips in the past, but they taste yucky, too waxy. Can I just use reg. choc. chips? Will they set up hard? Thanks. Jonna

I'm not sure about the chocolate chips but you can flavor the wafer chips (candy melts) and they taste pretty good. I used Lorann oil flavoring for my seashells made with candy melts and they were pretty good tasting. I used pina colada flavor.

You can use chocolate chips, but real chocolate has to be tempered to have a nice sheen and snap when unmolded. You can always luster dust them to hide the lack of shine if you don't temper the melted chocolate.
