How do I use Choco Writers?
Choco Writers are so easy to use by following these simple instructions.. No more tempering, no more bain-maries, no more microwaved chocolate, and best of all.. No more messy piping bags! Simply place the Choco Writer tube into a measuring jug of boiling water. Allow 2 to 3 minutes to activate the Choco Writer. Carefully lift out of the hot water and dry. Ensure the product is soft to touch, and massage the tube to ensure all contents are liquid. Unscrew cap and snip the tip off the nozzle. Your Choco Writer is ready to go! Create, write, swirl and decorate!
What can I do if my Choco Writer is too hard or runny?
If you find that your Choco Writer still feels hard after being left for 2 to 3 minutes in boiling water, pop it back in the water until the tube is soft to touch. On the other hand, if you find that your Choco Writer is too soft and runny after melting in boiling water, leave it to set for a minute or so. It may take a bit of trail and error to get the timings right!
