Becky Said:Is Gulf Wax Household Paraffin wax the same paraffin to use in cooking?
We Answered:ummmm i don't think so! don't take a chance!
Francis Said:Is there a substitute for Paraffin Wax in candy making?
We Answered:you can buy candy melts with the wax already in it. Almond Bark brand melting chocolate and wilton's candy melts already have the right amount of wax in them to help them set up.
Lonnie Said:Do I HAVE to use paraffin wax in this recipe?
We Answered:honestly, yes you must use the paraffin, BUT, you can get the same effect by simply melting chocolate chips in the microwave.
Luis Said:Candy making question regarding paraffin wax?
We Answered:Many of my candy recipes call for paraffin to be added to the melted chocolate, but I have never added it. It just seems like a lot of trouble for a benefit that is not really necessary. Many of my friends add paraffin to their chocolate for candy making, and I have never noticed a cheap chocolate taste. The coatings on their candies are a little more firm, but still tastes good.
Willie Said:Lots of questions about paraffin wax?
We Answered:You can find parafin wax with canning supplies in your grocery store.
If you are using baking chocolate or choc chips I dont belive they contain wax. Candy bars usually do, to prevent melting.
Some candy recipes call for paraffin for the same reasons, to keep the chocolate stable.
Roberto Said:i have a recipe for dipping chocolates that call for paraffin wax does anyone know where i can find it?
We Answered:It is not recommended to use paraffin wax in food as it is a petroleum product candy. However, some chefs use the high quality paraffin in cooking. It adds shine to chocolates and helps preserve foods. I have put in a link for you to read about this paraffin. If you buy chocolate wafers that are made for dipping, you won't have to worry about the paraffin.
Also, if you are using chocolate chips, by adding butter and corn syrup, this will help them adhere to whatever you are dipping.

I have been using Gulf or Northland wax for canning in my homemade coconut cream Easter eggs for over 40 years and there has never been an ill effect. Dipping without or using the Wilton chocolate or adding butter and corn syrup just does not work. The candy wafers are too thick and the rest soften instantly at room temp.
I am out of it and can't find it. Do you know where I can find it?
