I guess I heated it probably the worst way, lol!!! I am determined to try it again and make it work. All of this is helping so much!

I used to use the microwave myself, but since I discoverd the double boiler system, I'd never go back to using a microwave. It's a constant heat, and it keeps it for as long as you need it to be melted. You can leave it for a while, and go back. Plus, you don't have to worry about it getting burnt like in the microwave. Just remember that you can't color bark with liquid food coloring, it'll seize up and be worthless.

I made chocoalte covered pretzels this Christmas also, vanilla and chocolate, and it worked RELLY well. My family couldn't get enough of them. I tapped the excess chocolate off them, and laid them on wax paper to cool. It hardens a lot faster than if you use chocolate chips or something like that.

I wondered it that would help. Keeping it at a more constant temp.

My mom and I used the chocolate almond bark to make chocolate covered pretzels (and vanilla) for neighbor X-mas gifts and we had a little bit of trouble with it thickening up while we were using it. We just stuck it back in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time :) You might have more luck keeping it on a double boiler like others have suggested.

Aside from the packaging, from what I see the stuff inside looks the same as what I used. Thanks.
So have you had any issues with it being too thick?

I think the brand is the difference in the wording. I just looked at a brick I have, it's called almond Bark, Chocolate flavored coating, so I'm thinking it's gotta be the same thing. It's one solid bar, 24 oz, and you break it up into pieces, so you probably found it.

I was thinking you were using the baking chips, and to me those taste like plastic!

Well I went with the intentions of finding something in the store called almond bark. But all I could find was the candy coating. The candy coating was in one 'bar' like thing, that you broke into peices. I thought they were the same, but now you have me wondering. I know that what I bought was not called bark. Maybe I just missed the bark in the store. I will look and see if I confused myself when I go back.
