If you make your own chocolate candy or truffles at home, you know that it's crucial to be accurate about the temperature of your chocolate at all times. To get an accurate reading use a digital thermometer. A regular candy thermometer is less accurate at the low temperatures that chocolate candy making requires. Also, be sure that you hold your thermometer so that it doesn't touch the sides or bottom of the container your chocolate is in, as this will affect the temperature reading.
