I often do not use the Microwave to melt chocolate because it takes eons of time but I decided to try it because the chocolate I made did not set properly. I took my candy thermometer out. When I melted the Almond bark I use 1 bar to 2 tbl of sweetened condensed milk and 1/4 tsp Vanilla for 30 seconds in microwave it melted good I stirred it but did not use the candy thermometer. I had to take the candy out of all the molds and put them back into a bowl and do 15 seconds add 2 tsp corn starch stir and 2 tsp of powdered sugar stir. Put back in and after 15 seconds take back out stir, measure temp your objective is to get the mixture to 200F. Keep doing 15 seconds and stir until your thermometer reaches 200F. When 200F is reached put fudge into Pam sprayed tupperware let the mixture cool on countertop than put it in the fridge. This mix can also be done with chocolate. I made chocolate truffles at temp 180F letting mixture cool a bit and rolling into balls on cafe mocha instant mix or powered sugar and cinnamon. The truffles made with 2 tbl Hersheys syrup.
