OK would white chocolate candy melts or almond bark work for the white chocolate to be added to Michele Foster's Fondant? I'm in a VERY small town and haven't been able to find straight white chocolate chips...

I have never made that recipe but most likely that would be just fine.

I use her recipe exclusively and I don't even like the white chips...they aren't white chocolate either....just "premier white chips" is written on the packaging. I use Baker's white chocolate baking squares. I don't like the artificial taste of candy melts or the "premier" white chips...made the fondant taste funny...the white chocolate squares make it taste really really good.

I suppose you could add the almond bark or the candy melts but neither are white chocolate...and won't give you the same results as adding the white chocolate will. Candy melts aren't chocolate...no matter what color they are.

I agree with mamawrobin. I've only been able to find pure white chocolate chips at speciality stores (and not close to where I live!) and I live in a large city. If you can't get your hands on the pure white chocolate chips or bars, then try the alternatives (e.g. candy melts). Maybe you could research ordering white chocolate online? Just a thought. HTH
