What did I do wrong? I had them in the freezer, then put them in the refrigerator before dipping. They were NOT frozen when I started dipping and actually the ones that are cracking are some of the last ones I dipped, which would have not been as cold as the others.
Ugh.. i thought I did so good following directions and I still messed up.
FYI. . I used Almond Bark not candy melts. Which I thought was a safer way to go, but not only are they cracking but I found it very difficult to dip because the chocolate was so thick.
Please help so this doesn't happen again!
Oh also. . .I do not have room in my freezer to put them in there now that they're decorated wrapped (on my previous post, someone had said to pop them back in once decorated until delivery).
Will they be ok sitting at room temp until Saturday? They are covered with a cello bag and tied with ribbon???
There may have been a bit of condensation build up as they thawed. Make sure that you keep your chocolate warm and workable as you get to the last ones, so that it doesn't become too thick. I always add a couple of tablespoons of Crisco to my chocolate, whether it's candy melts, almond bark or chocolate chips. That seems to help with the workability.
They should be okay as long as it's not too warm, but just to be safe, I'd stick them in the fridge.
I agree, I would add shortening, the thinner the better and that may help them not crack, because the chocolate's not so thick. I do A LOT of cake pops, and it does take practice to get them just right. Good Luck!
