What is the secret of luscious chocolate covered macadamia nuts? Some use candied macadamia nuts to get best tasting and real dark chocolate is also great. In addition, we need to temper the chocolate for best appearance (non temper chocolate tend to bloom at room temperature). It is easy to find the chocolate covered macadamia nuts at markets with various flavors. They are yummy and people like to serve them in many occasions.
Macadamia nuts have great taste and crispiness. Covered with chocolate, these will be favorite snacks. However it is easy to make too. To make them we need ingredients including whole raw macadamia nuts, dark chocoa and truffles candy mold. Next we can start to work with step by step of process.
First, melt the chocolate candy in microwave and use half power for about two minutes. Next, put in for a minute at a time for finishing. Next, fill with the melted chocolate a third of each candy truffle mold and push a not on it. For finishing, fill candy mold with melted chocolate and tap the mold to remove any air bubbles.

For information, candy melts are easier to handle. They make beautiful and shiny candies too but the disadvantage is that it is not as luscious as good chocolate. To melt candy melt discs we can use plastic squeeze bottle since it helps to melt the candy and fill the candy mold too. Keep the bottle in warm water so the chocolate will keep warm as we fill candy molds with nuts. Otherwise, we can pop it back into microwave for a minute as necessary. In addition, we can melt the chocolate on stove using double boiler. Bear in mind not to wet the chocolate with water since it may get the chocolate seized.
