I live in South Africa and I'm struggling to find candy coating that's used to dip things like cakepops, as per Bakerella. It's supposed to firm up harder than baking chocolate. Anyone know of a substitute?

You can use regular chocolate. Bakerella uses candy coating style so a) she doesn't have to temper it (I don't think she knows how to). and b) it's pre-colored. You can do the same things with regular chocolate. You just need to temper it.

another name for candy melts is almond bark. it works the same way. also, you may be able to order the candy melts off line from the wilton website...

Baked boutique in Cape Town sells Wilton candy melts. They post orders as well if you are not in Cape Town.

The website address is www.bakedboutique.co.za
