    I need a recipe for a chocolate drizzle .. you know, something i can drizzle onto cookies that will "dry" in place and not smug all over. It would be great if it could be substituted with white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips.

    thanks!

    Just melt in in a double boiler. It has a very low melting point.

    I think oil is only really used if you're trying to make choccie flake things (it apparently makes it more cohesive & therefore easier to scrape at).

    well if you want to get all technical there is some type of choclate at the store i work at made just for a choclate drizzle.

    That's for dipping fruit in. I'd hate to say I'm a chocoholic but I do have a fountain for such stuff.

    I always add a little oil if I'm doing dark chocolate but just melt the milk chocolate. Oh, and it will be messy no matter what.

    I don't remember but I wouldn't have paid more than fifty bucks for it. It's a small one, maybe eighteen or twenty inches tall.

    Edit: It's a real bitch to clean too.

    They sell those fountain cheap enough at most stores that sell kitchen equipment.

    *Sigh* It's cookie swap time and I have 2 that I am attending. That's a total of 10 dozen cookies to make and swap.
    Swapping means trading one for another. So even when you minus out the cookies for "tasting", that leaves me with about 6 dozen that I'll be bringing home.

    Well... hopefully they're good. Although if not... that gives you something to play hockey in the street with.

    do you also get the recipes?

    I love making cookies .. I just don't like the ones that take so much preparation .. or need a rolling pin .. or cookie cutters .. or .. mixing ... :D

    how much is a "little" oil? and what about white chocolate? can I just melt that too?

    Me and Chris are making these shortbread cookies but doing different twists on the recipe .. in one we substituted orange extract for vanilla and added just a bit of orange zest .. that was YUMMY .. we thought a nice drizzle of white chocolate would go great with that.
