i want to make cake pops soon and add swirls on them with chocolate. i was wondering what kind of bag and tip i would use to do this. i was thinking about putting chocolate in a piping bag and using a very small tip but worried the chocolate would leak out. i want as much control over the chocolate as possible so it wont leak out and will leave me with clean results. any tips? and what chocolate should i use? maybe candy melts?

I have done this with candy melts. You just have to be very careful with the amount of pressure you use and stop the pressure just before you are done and let it stop flowing before you pull up. Also, let the chocolate cool just a tad, it won't be as thin, but still workable. HTH

If you mean little stripes of chocolate streaks, I use a fork dipped in the chocolate, and just wave it back and forth, letting the stream of chocolate that runs off make the streaks. No bag or tip needed.
