Use chocolate chips for truffle coating?

vincesun | Mar 17, 2012 11:34 PM

Hi I'm a beginner in making chocolate truffles. What I have here are some Callebaut chocolate chips (repacked by my local bakery supply store in 1lb pack). I was planning to temper them and coat the truffles I make, but later I saw online that some chocolate chips contain additives to hold their shapes at a higher temperature, which will cause troubles in the tempering process.

Does anyone know if the Callebaut chips are pure chocolate or compounded chocolate? Could anyone recommand some brands of chocolate which are good for coating?

Thanks!!!!
