ISO help with sweetness of white chocolate

Since white chocolate is usually extra sweet I was wondering how I can tone down the sweetness without affecting the flavour. A friend sugested adding fresh lemon juice to the melted white chocolate but I'm afraid that might cause it to seize as well as give it a lemon taste. Any suggestions out there?

Thanks,

It depends on what you're using the white chocolate for. Let us know how you'll be using it and we can probably give you some tips.

Lemongrass should infuse a lemon taste without the acid seizing the chocolate. A bit out there for some, but how about chilli?

Mostly for dipping. I'm going to be dipping marshmallows on Friday and I want to dip balloons to make a shell into which I want to add mousse. This evening I dipped cake balls in white chocolate and they're a little sweeter than I would like but... Oh well, I'd be useful to know some tips for lessening the sweetness.

Thanks.
