AAre you using real chocolate or candy melts (like the Wilton or Merckens discs?) If real chocolate, you will need to temper it. It's not the easiest process. If you are using the discs, I'm not sure what the problem would be. Hopefully someone else will be able to help.

If they are just a little dull, they can be sprayed with edible lacquer. Cake supplies store often sell it. There are probably other solutions, but I don't work with chocolate much.

Sorry, but that lacquer is pretty expensive and doesn't taste very good.  It's generally used for competition items or things that won't be eaten.

A light spray of it is flavorless - I use it all the time, but admittedly not on chocolate. Yes, it's $35-50 for can, but lasts forever.
