Jacques Torres sells milk chocolate covered cheerios and they are delicious. Considering making them at home, for holiday gifts, but I've struggled with chocolate-covered items before (chocolate covered homemade marshmallows were delicious but, I've decided, not worth it). The melting part is easy, but I have problems with the dipping part: it often doesn't smoothly coat the dipped item, it seems like you have to melt a ton of chocolate to really dip, instead of "apply," and then once its dipped I have a hard time figuring out where to place it. Like with the marshmallows I used a toothpick to dip, then stuck them upside-down in Styrofoam to dry, very messy! So any thoughts on how to make these cheerios? I was planning to use nylon thread but am scared they will all clump together. Any suggestions appreciated!
