Chocolate Bloom Doom

If your chocolate is showing signs of bloom—whitish spots that occur when it has been stored improperly or for too long—salvage it by melting and stirring gently. The bloom only minimally affects the taste of the chocolate so, while you're better off eating your fresher stash of chocolate candy, the melted chocolate will still work well in your chocolate recipes.

Thank you for this tip, I have had the problem of dipping balls in chocolate and then finding they have a bloom on them. From what I have gleaned it is to do with overheating the chocolate when melting and keeping them in the fridge?
