    You want a melting chocolate, so it will not separate when hot. Party supply stores usually sell it.

    i dont know the brand, but there are these little waffer-like chips that are made for dipping. they work GREAT!

    its a round white box with a tubberware type lid, probably about 5-6 inches in diameter. i know they are usually found near the fresh fruits as well as in the backing isle in the Giant Food's store we shop at.
