I am making some chocolates for someone and was wondering what everyone uses for their chocolate. I've used candy melts which work great but don't taste as good. I use Ghiradelli for baking and have dipped pretzels, etc in that. But want these to definitely taste AND look great. Any suggestions on what brand to use?

You can add 1 tbsp shortening to 12 oz of high-quality chocolate to help it melt smoother and create that nice coating on candy like you get with candy melts. I prefer to use Ghiradelli and Scharfenburger brands.
