Regarding the Almond Joy Bars recipe submitted by "one.of.a.kind": Why does the recipe need paraffin added to the chocolate? I've never cooked with it except to make jams the "old fashioned way" before we had special jam jars.

It helps the consistency of the chocolate, decreases the "blooming" (where the cocoa butter comes to the surface and looks yukky), and makes it look a little shinier and prettier. You could make it without; but it really makes for a prettier product.


You can use fresh canning wax; and you really don't use much--it is perfectly safe. When she says 2 inch square, I expect she means a 2 inch square form one of the "slices" in the box--not like a cube.

The paraffin also helps keep the chocolate from melting as quickly while you're holding it to eat it ;-)
