Tips for Working with Candy Melts

Candy melts and white chocolate can be a little tricky to work with. Sometimes it doesn’t melt correctly and will be clumpy.

Adding vegetable oil can help smooth it out for a better dipping consistency. I start by adding a teaspoon of oil and stir it in. Continue to add a teaspoon at a time until your melted candy reaches the right consistency.

As you can see in the photo above, the orange candy melts need a little oil to make a smoother consistency, and the green is ready to dip.

Just be aware that you want to add as little as possible so it doesn’t become too oily.

    I made some of these goodies for our church bake sale at our town’s Pumpkinfest. I made mummy cupcakes and the Spooky ghost cupcakes and they went fast! I had them marked as gluten free but people purchased them despite. If I had more time I would have made more treats. I would have loved to made the monster kripsie treats. I can’t wait until Christmas to see what you have in store as I makeup Christmas goodies bags for all my family members.
