Pareve chocolate for candy making

candymkr1 Feb 28, 2011 12:02 PM

Can anyone tell me if there is a brand of pareve chocolate that can be used for candy making but does not have to be tempered?

    Elite's bittersweet melts down pretty well - I've used it without tempering many times and never had a problem.

      I don't make candy, but for baking I use Alprose swiss baking chocolate. I prefer the flavor to Elite and paskez. I don't think that anyone makes an unsweetened parve baking chocolate.

        Hershey does.

          Thank you. I'll look for it. Is it on Pesach lists? Like Hershey's cocoa?

            I don't know if it's kosher for pesach or not. But it has an OU for the other 51 weeks of the year.
