Q: I bought chocolate discs last year to make the home-made peppermint patty candies that you have on your site. Time got away from me and I never made them. This year I want to make them and pulled out the chocolate discs that I bought last year and they have that "old" chocolate look with the white stuff on it. Will this white stuff go away when I melt it? Will it come back when it then dries on my candies? Sent by Kelly Editor: Kelly, the good news is yes, you can use the chocolate. Here's a good explanation of bloom on chocolate: • Chocolate Bloom: Good or Bad? Readers, any other comments or advice on this?
