Van Leer compound Chocolate by Barry Callebaut has a beautiful shiny finish and snap. Compound Chocolate is widely used by professionals and home hobbyists for its versatility and workability. Unlike couverture or chocolate with high and pure cocoa butter content, compound chocolate does not need to be tempered.
Decorators Tip: Chocolate is a tastier alternative to gum paste glue and other types of edible glues. Pop in the microwave, melt and stir in 10-second intervals. Use in place of traditional edible glues when decorating with fondant.
Decorators Tip: When using White compound chocolate for drip cakes, thin out with pure cocoa butter for desired consistency.
