Edible parafin wax for chocolate making?
My chocolate making experience was less than a success. The only type of chocolate I can handle is melting chocolate wafers for dipping. Other than that, none of my chocolate turned out good. Tried tempering but still couldn't get the results I wanted.
I did some research online and found some people actually use paraffin wax in their chocolate and candy, said it would help set the chocolate better. It was suggested to find the paraffin wax in the canning section along with all the canning stuff.
Went to the store today and found some. Read the label but nothing it said indicated it was edible or could be put into food. The pictures on the box were for canning, making candles, releasing stuck zippers, and even for bruised tree! It only said the wax was "refined" but nothing else. Did I find the right thing? Or do I need to keep looking?
