Can anyone tell me how to use paramount crystals. I bought them to thin out melted chocolate so I can dip cake balls in them. I think the ratio is 1/4 cup to 1lb of melted chocolate. Will the chocolate dry hard? Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.

I've used crystals many times. However i've never measured them out. I usually just melt my chocolate first and then add a shake full in at a time. I guess I would say it is about a tsp. at a time. Then stir. You just do this until you get the consistency you want. If the chocolate hasn't bloomed yet (started to get the white spots on it) then you probably won't need that much. And yes the chocolate will still dry hard for you. I usually have to use it with chocolate that has already bloomed and it after adding in the crystals my chocolate molded candy comes out just fine. I hope this helps.
