Hi Virago, Thanks great!! I was thinking about getting a chocolate melter or I was thinking.... I could melt it in a slow cooker to do a large batch at once. Has anyone ever tried melting chocolate in a slow cooker? I'm going to try the almond bark... does it taste better than the regular candy melts? And are the paramount crystals better than using vegetable oil? I usually use the vegetable oil to thin the chocolate. Thanks!
