What size package of chocolate chips do you use to make Miracle Fudge? I'd like to try it Monday (hopefully)

Vicki, I asked the same question over on TOH. Someone over there said they had used different size packages with no problems. It's kind of hard these days to know. Previously baking chips were always 12 ounce packages. Now they range anywhere from 10 to 12 ounces.

Smile Don't know if you would lie this idea or not. But I also add the Pkgs. of the Heath bar crunch where the chocolate chips are kept.

Does anyone else have trouble with the white chips? It seems like every time I want to make something with them, I have trouble with the melting. They don't seem to melt like regular chocolate chips do. Last night, I burned them in the microwave and had to throw it out. I just made the miracle fudge with strawberry icing and vanilla chips. Before I got it all mixed up, the chips were trying to clump back together. I've always had trouble with them. I just wondered it anyone else does?

I does seem like the white and the butterscotch don't melt as smoothly as the chocolate. I thought it was something I was doing wrong. I have been going to town with this fudge though, ha ha. I have made lemon frosting with white chips, a little salt, a little lemon juice and some lemon zest. White chocolate with cream cheese frosting and some dried cherries. Butterscotch chips, the pecan frosting, a little butter, salt and vanilla. I made rocky road with dark chocolate chips, chocolate frosting, toffee chips, a little salt, a little butter and some marshmallows. Hubby tasted that and gave me a "Oooohhhhhh thats REALLY good!" What have you tried and liked? Question

Kelo,
I understand, and have had the same problem. I saw Emeril do this.

Here is how I melted any kind of chocolate, without seizing. I put a heavy glass bowl, over a pan with simmering water, add the chips, and stirred ocassionally. I took the bowl off the water just before all the chips were melted.

Hoping to try Miracle Fudge tomorrow or Thursday.

Vicki

Well, Patti and Vicki, I'm so glad to know that it's not just me with the white chips. I always make millionaires every year and I use the white and chocolate almond bark for those. A couple of years ago, I decided I would use the white chips instead. Big mistake! After it melted, it all started clumping back together, so I threw it in the trash and went back to the almond bark. I wonder if it would work with in the fudge? (The almond bark, I mean.)
