Ann & Robert: Isn't it the same as Chocolate Almond Bark that is used in lots of Christmas candies? It comes in 1 lb. packages, both white and chocolate, scored into big squares, on the same isle as chocolate chips and other baking supplies.

Chocolate Bark is also called Candy Coating, Candy Melts®, candy wafers, chocolate coating, almond bark, vanilla bark, etc. They are different names for the SAME result....chocolate (or a coating) that has been "TEMPERED". All that is needed is for the product to be melted until smooth and creamy. No additional tempering needed. You can find "Candy Coating" in the baking aisle of any grocery store.

You can use the almond chocolate bars, or the chocolate candy melts.
