The Best Dipping/Coating Chocolate Ever!

Recipe by Evil Step-Mom
READY IN: 35mins


  • 12
    ounces chocolate, chopped into small pieces. (Any type will do, although I am partial to Hershey's Milk Chocolate)
  • 2
    ounces canning paraffin wax, like Gulf Wax (about 1/2 bar)


  • Chop the paraffin into small pieces.
  • Melt the paraffin in the microwave, or on top of a double-boiler. (This takes quite a while, so be patient.).
  • When the paraffin is melted, add the chocolate.
  • Stir all together.
  • If using the microwave, continue heating for 1-minute intervals, using 50% power, until everything is well-blended. Be sure to stir your mixture between 1-minute heatings. If using a double-boiler, stir the chocolate/paraffin mixture constantly until fully mixed.
  • Dip marshmallows, nuts, dried fruit, cookies, pretzels, or whatever you like.
  • Fresh fruits should be at the peak of ripeness. After rinsing your fresh fruit, you need to be sure it's patted completely dry. (Chocolate will not cling to wet fruit.).
  • After dipping, place on a waxed-paper lined cookie-sheet and allow to harden. 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on ambient temperature.
