I'm planning to sell these but how can I keep the chocolate from melting? When I made these before the didn't last long enough for me to test. Will adding food grade paraffin wax make the chocolate stable?

I'm thinking it should be good for 3 to 5 days so what can i do to keep the chocolate from melting and getting all over the packaging for that period of time?

If I just melt chocolate bars instead of baking chocolate will it be more stable? I can't find candy bark here. icon_sad.gif

If you are using plain chocolate you must temper the chocolate. Once it is tempered it will not melt unless it's sitting out in very high heat or direct sunlight. If you do not know how to temper chocolate, you should use confectioner's/coating chocolate/candy melts, which do not need to be tempered.
