White chocolate fiasco

Not only once, but twice ! I had no idea how tricky it is to melt white chocolate ! The first time I tried was for the Halloween chocolate cake. The dark chocolate with 70% cocoa melt nicely and was easy to cover the cake with. I wanted to decorate it with a spider web in white chocolate. Too bad I had not read about how to melt white chocolate. It burned, turned brown and hard.

Date Balls Date Balls

Yesterday I, again, made date balls. I wanted to coat some with white chocolate. This time I would be very careful, not make any mistakes. I read so many tips on how to do and how not to do it. Well, at least, it didn’t burn this time. But was too thick and hardened too quickly. I gave up after “dipping” eight balls in it. The rest I rolled in coconut flakes and cocoa powder.

Last night I was convinced, no more melted white chocolate for me. I’m done with it for good !

But, again this morning I have surfed the web for even more tips on how to succeed in melting it. Maybe I still sometime will give it a third chance 🙂 After all, the balls with the white chocolate coating are delicious 😉
