I finally got around to trying out the bars that I am making as favors. They look cute, but did not temper for a variety of reasons. I think I'll be able to get it to work in another try or two, once my new thermometer comes.
In the mean time, I need to order chocolate, a lot of chocolate, about 30 pounds. It has to be chocolate that will temper well at home. Any suggestions?
Try stover and co - they have good prices on all kinds of bulk chocolates. Good luck!
