Has anyone made candy coating?

Claudette | Sep 24, 2012 08:08 AM

I bought several bags of candy coating so that my daughter and her friends could make cake pops. Even though the coating tasted disgusting, it was a lot easier to handle than tempering chocolate or using a thick ganache (what I usually do for my truffles). Have any of you made your own candy coating or have a recipe? I wonder if a bit of oil added to chocolate would be the same? (It has to be fool-proof and kid-proof.) TIA.
