id like to use isomalt instead of candy melts to cover cake pops ( inside a mold ) because I live in Dubai which is humid all year long so, im just wondering have any of you tried using it?
AI believe that isomalt is not classed as an edible product. But toffee might work , although I doubt if cake pops would stay on the stick as the hot sugar will melt the buttercream and make them fall apart. Freezing them may work well

oh I see...I guess I have to experiment some more before I actually come to THAT perfect technique in cakepop making; thanks for the reply sugarflorist
AYes, isomalt is edible. but as a customer, I would not want to eat a soft cake pop in a hard candy shell.
AI am sure that I read somewhere that isomalt has a laxative affect tried to Google but could not find it.
AIsomalt is almost entirely sorbitol and mannitol (98% or more), which can both have a laxitive effect. Some are more sensitive than others. If I knew that's what the coating was, I would definitely limit myself to one cake pop.More would be very bad news.
Maybe roll them in crushed hard candies? I have not tried this and don't know if they would absorb too much moisture. I'd do a trial run before making a big batch.
AThis is what the use in diabetic sweets.
Not sure what your occasion is but perhaps cake pops and a chocolate fountain would fit the bill.
thanks for all your insights, really appreciate them! so isomalt is not a good idea for cakepops ; id better stick to perfecting the chocolate coating then-
