Because tempered chocolate can be spread very thinly, it is useful for molding chocolate and coating candies, like our Dipped Chocolate Truffles.

Cook's Notes

Tempering chocolate can be tricky, but a few tips will help: Don't use a wooden spoon to stir, don't let any water get into the chocolate, and be sure the thermometer tip doesn't touch the bottom of the bowl. Because of the large amount of chocolate called for in this recipe, it's easier to make half a batch at a time. Tempered chocolate should be used immediately.
