It's sticking, just not blending into the white chocolate. I dipped the pretzel in chocolate and put the image on imediately and it looks like paper on top of chocolate. No blend! What am I doing wrong...
(oh, and I'm using white almond bark, is that a big deal?)

HELP please

I've used and made edible images for years and every brand of image paper that I've used suggests using white buttercream under the image. I have also used piping gel for some applications. Yes,you can put images on other mediums but I don't think it is going to 'blend'into chocolate. If you put buttercream on top of solid chocolate it's just going to sit on top.

I've read somewhere about using crisco on the back of the sheet to adhere to the chocolate. Do you think that would still keep it "sitting" on the chocolate?

Dont use crisco. t wont blend into the chocolate just rub it in to make sure it is sticking.

chocolate transfer sheets blend in. Maybe they would work?
