Slabs of composite candy bars are precoated in the same manner as any other slab of center and for all of the same reasons: to seal the bar completely so that it has an acceptable shelf life and to make it easier to handle during enrobing. Of course, when using an enrober that has a bottoming function, it is not necessary to precoat the slab by hand. As always, the chocolate used for precoating should be the same type in which the bar will be enrobed.
