Guittard Dark A'peels coating chocolate is a perfect replacement for Merckens®. They are an all around compound coating chocolate and don't require tempering!
Important: For a shiny finished product, A’Peels should be melted to 120-125 F until it is smooth and all of the lumps are gone. Then let the chocolate cool, but keep it between 105F– 125F while working. If it gets too cool, reheat to 120-125F again to use.
Take care not to overheat your chocolate as it can burn quickly. A’Peels can still bloom. Bloom happens when the chocolate has been heated too high too quickly and the result is the fat (oil) comes to the surface of the chocolate and gives it that chalky white look.
If you have bloom on the chocolates that you have dipped or molded, it is probably due to the temperature getting too high while melting your chocolate. If it got too hot, when it sets, it will bloom. We recommend using a candy thermometer.
They can be easily melted over a double boiler, or in a microwave oven in a microwave proof container on half power with 10 second intervals of heating and stirring.
Guittard A'Peels are Gluten Free, Peanut Free, Non GMO and made with Sunflower Lecithin
