Chi-an and Marcia thank you for the fun time and for the great job you did on this video. I would like to clarify one thing for your viewers - I stated that the melts you can buy here and use at home taste "pretty good", an acceptable alternative to using real chocolate for at home chocolate making. What I really want to get across is that the REAL chocolate that I use for finished products sold at Cynthia's Sweets is SUPERB!!! So, if you decide not to do it yourself or just want to compare the chocolates come on in and visit me. Thanks again.
