What is a Chocolate Coating?

A Chocolate Coating is commonly known by many names: confectionery coating, candy melt, candy coating, and dipping coating.

What is the difference between a chocolate coating and real chocolate?

There are 2 main differences.

The first is the fat compound used to make them. Real chocolate uses a cocoa butter base while chocolate coatings use natural oils such as a palm kernel oil.

The second difference is the outer surface.

Once melted real chocolate cools off, is remains soft (picture the inside of a truffle). To achieve a hardened result, the real chocolate needs to be tempered.

Conversely, once a melted chocolate coating cools off, it naturally returns to a hardened state (picture the outside shell of chocolates from a Valentine heart).

A chocolate coating is the perfect finishing touch for many goodies. Dipping fruit, sandwich cookies, nougat, and pretzel sticks are common and fun practices. Let your imagination run wild! Additional easy-to-do activities include pouring into a plastic mold to create your own chocolate candy and suckers, or making your own chocolate covered cherries.
