For those who use candy melts to coat petit fours. How many bags of candy melts do you buy to make these sweet treats?
I will be making them 1 1/2 inch by 1 1/2 in square shape. I was guessing maybe 3.
Do you add anything to the melted chocolate to kept it thin or just keep putting it back in the microwave?
I was wanting to try the candy melts since I have read such good reports about it.
I never really know how many bags I will need. I always have alot on hand as I usually use them for so much. If they are a little thick, you can add oil to it. Just a little, & stir really good. Helen
you can also add paramount crystals or solid shortening to thin the candy melts.
You can always re-use the left overs. You can pour it through a strainer to remove crumbs, then let it cool, wrap it well to use another time.
I've recently had two different bakers (who have never even met) tell me that adding a tiny bit of oil will thin out the candies, as well. Many of us don't have shortening around, but we will typically have oil.
