This year for the holidays, experiment with making your own chocolate syrup. When you find a recipe you like, can several extra jars in small jam jars for mailing as gifts. Decorate the jars with festive fabrics and ribbons. Be sure to package the jars securely to avoid breaking. This is a great way to send chocolate by mail.
Can any good brand of chocolate be used for dipping strawberries and still set up hard when cool? If not, can anything be done to it or added to the melted chocolate to ensure it will set up hard to the touch?
