White Chocolate Melting Disks

Can anyone suggest where I can buy this IN Boston? I'm making this recipe http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/candy... and the only place I've been able to find the white chocolate disks is at Party Favors in Brookline and AC Moore in Somerville. Is anything closer? I live in Beacon Hill. Thank you!

    1. It sounds like you've found the type of places that carry this sort of stuff. Michael's, AC Moore - can't imagine there's a Michael's in Beacon HIll or Back Bay!

      On the other hand:
      Lindt white chocolate bars melt well, can be bought in many food shops, even DeMoula's and are made with actual food ingredients like cocoa butter!

        Not sure what you mean by "actual food ingredients" but moving on- can I substitute regular white chocolate bars for white chocolate melting disks in this recipe?

          Yes, you can. I posted an earlier reply to that effect this morning and it seems to have disappeared. White chocolate discs are just a different form of white chocolate. Sometimes they have stabilizers and artificial ingredients in them. I think you're better off buying some sort of bulk white chocolate and melting that. And, you can find white chocolate bars, chunks, etc. almost anywhere–Lindt, Ghiardelli, Callebeaut, to name a few brands. Try you're local market or even Polcari's or Salumeria Italiano in the North End.

            Thank you Skippy! I'd much rather use a higher quality chocolate... just wasn't sure if it would "work" with the recipe. Your advice is much appreciated and you just saved me two long T rides!

      2. Do you mean the little oval disks with a slightly raised edge, about 3/4"? They carry them at all the Whole Foods, in the cheese departments...

          Read the ingredients on the Wilton discs at the party stores- they are not white chocolate. You're best bet is the call Whole Foods and see if they carry the Valrhona discs (technically called feves) or chopping down a block.

          1. re: lbfoody

            I believe they're the Valrhona or Callebaut feves at Whole Foods....
