hello sukkimi..i tried making these london almonds.but i have a problem with the cooking chocolate.after melting them, when hardened, they don't look glossy like yours.they are dull and have greyinsh swirl on the surface..any advice?thanks

Sukkimi said...

Beginner,

The melted choc is very sensitve to liquid. Make sure not even a single drop of water gets into the melted choc.

If the choc get harden before you finish coating all of the cookies, simply return the choc to the stove to melt them again.

Hope it helps

Thanks for your advice. No wonder my chocolate become so thick is because I boiled it wrongly. Will try again next time =)
