Easy to Melt

Thanks to their petite, round shape, these dark coating wafers are much easier to melt and use than block chocolate, and save the time and hassle of tempering chocolate. To ensure a hard, glossy coating on your dipped or coated items, melt the wafers carefully over a double boiler or in a microwave, stirring every 15 seconds until the product is smooth and melted to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. The ideal working temperature is 100 - 115 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the final product is made, refrigerate for 10-15 minutes to set.

Beloved Brand Name

Customers will recognize and trust the Ghirardelli name when they see it in your cafe, coffee shop, ice cream parlor, or restaurant. Ghirardelli began with a young Italian chocolatier in the early 1800s and is now a brand widely known for its rich flavors. This sense of quality is the result of Ghirardelli's commitment to control all steps of the chocolate-making process, from roasting the cocoa beans, to refining the product for smoothness and well-balanced flavor. In addition, the company understands that sustainable sourcing and knowing the origins of the cocoa beans speaks to the quality of the finished product.

We love this chocolate to melt it down and use to cover all our ice cream cones from cake, sugar and waffle cones. Dries very fast too

This is a great chocolate to use for almost any application that calls for chocolate. I've made sauces out of it, used it in cookies/brownies and just straight up eaten it and it's a really solid product. My first box came melted and fused together and webstaurantstore replaced it immediately.

These wafers are delicious on their own or melted down to make homemade peanut butter cups and other chocolates. They do tend to melt a little when shipping though, so might be better to stock up when the weather is cooler.

Brandy M. on 09/13/2018

Amazing! Melted great and a great price for bulk, It lasted me a while and were great for dipped strawberries and cake balls and i also tried pineapples with it.

Kamari from Creative Creations on 08/13/2021

These melting wafers make chocolate work so much easier. They melt great, are nice and thin for dipping so you can get things coated well without a ton of chocolate.

Funky taste. I would not recommend this product at all. Rather spend extra $$$ and buy better coating chocolate. I expected more from a brand like Ghiradelli

Not happy. I ordered the bulk boxes of dark, milk and white chocolate wafers and none will harden! Making them obsolete for what I do! The dark dries with chalky sections. Wasted money! I go to the store and by the 10oz ghirardelli in the same flavors and the harden perfectly.

Rebecca S. from Stryking Events on 08/15/2020

Ghirardelli chocolate coating wafers is the best melting chocolate to use. It is so easy to work with and tastes delicious, I highly recommend buying this product!

Irais E. on 02/21/2020

I use the Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Coating Wafers to coat cookies.The wafers melt smoothly the chocolate dries pretty quickly and the taste is amazing the best so far for melting chocolate. The outcome is shiny hard shell coated cookies or anything else Dipped in chocolate.

Rositsa K. from Rosie’S Sweets on 02/20/2020

This is BY FAR the best tasting chocolate and the best dipping chocolate! It melts so easily and smoothly! I will never use another brand

Crystal D. from Alyssa's Heavenly Sweets on 01/30/2020

This is a wafer that doesn’t need tempered. It doesn’t have a great taste. It’s very artificial tasting. So great that there is no tempering but it taste like the Make n Mold wafer you get at the craft store but double the price.

I love Ghirardelli chocolates! They are so good!. This chocolate wafers melt really easy and stick well to whatever you are dipping. It has the nice chocolate crunch to it when you bite it.

Donald R. from Mami's Cocina on 11/14/2019

Emila from Emila's Sweets on 11/08/2019

Delicious!!! I bought Ghirardelli's dark chocolate and it was scrumptious and easy to use, no need to temper the chocolate. I got so many compliments. I'm never getting Candy Melts again.

Catarina A. on 10/27/2019

Perfect! These microwave really easily without burning, and form a hard shell within just a few minutes at room temperature. This is the best price for this product out there!

Nicole L. from Bisnonna Bakeshop on 10/17/2019

These chocolate wafers are exactly as described. They save the time of tempering chocolate. The taste is quality. We used them for dipping strawberries during Valentine's Day and our customers raved about them.

Roger H. from Sweet Designs Cakery on 03/12/2019

This chocolate is awesome! It tastes delicious and is a great price! We use this all the time in our cake shop! We used this for all of our chocolate covered strawberries on Valentine's day and had great reviews

Holly M. from Three Sisters Cake Shop on 02/19/2019

Legit the only dark chocolate I will use in my bakery. Dipping Cake pops, Chocolate Molds, drizzle... no other brand compares to this! Well worth the price

Danielle T. from The Wicked Sweet Sugar Boutique on 02/02/2019

Today we tried these wafers to make our famous hand-made truffles for family and some friends. They tasted so good, still can't get the taste out of my taste buds :)

Sadia F. from Mrs Sadia on 12/20/2018

These are delicious! Perfect for dipping cookies and nuts for the holidays. Webstaurant store has the best price I’ve seen, by far! They melt super easily and set up fast!
