Our Gourmet Confectioner Discs do not contain hydrogenated oil, so they melt at a higher temperature than other melts you may have worked with before. To get a smooth consistency, you will need to melt them using a double boiler. Bring the melts to a little above 100°F and keep them at a minimum of 95°F while you work.
Work as quickly as possible with the melted discs and immediately (within 45-60 seconds of being off the heat) put the molds or dipped items into the refrigerator or they will bloom. You may need to work in smaller batches so you can get your melted discs into the fridge within that time.
If your melted discs are brought to melting temperate and not reset correctly, it will cause fat bloom. While this bloom does not affect the taste of your melted discs and it is still fully edible, it will cause a dull white finish on the surface and sometimes throughout the melted discs. Fat bloom also causes the melted discs to lose its satisfying snap and shine.
While these discs are better tasting and better for you, than other melting chocolate, we understand they are a bit difficult to work with. Please reach out for any additional questions or advice on how to use our Gourmet Confectioner Discs.
