Can I use cake pop coating as white chocolate (melted from chips)? Everywhere I can see is Wilton Candymelts which I don't like.. They taste ok but white chocolate is YUMM....


How do I use it?.. It didn't melt like candy melts..

AAre you wanting to use white chocolate chips instead of white candy melts, or the other way around? I think you are stating you wish to use white chocolate chips to cover cake pops? There is white chocolate chips and there are white baking chips. Two totally different species that behave different from each other. Chips are made to not melt in cookies. That's not to say you can't get them to work. Try white merkins. You'll find folks who even like to use almond bark, or white dipping what-ever- it's -called from ghirardelli.

If I melt chocolate chips, I add a little bit of crisco so when they melt it will be thinner. It will still be thicker than candy melts and they will be harder to get to look nice, but they do taste better.

I just melt white chocolate chips (Guittard works well) in the microwave and if it's too thick, add a bit of Crisco.
