No, it helps to thin out the candy melts and make it flow a little better. It also gives it a bit of a shine.
I also use the crisco when i do chocolate dipped pretzels. I really thin it when I do those.
I also use it when I make truffles. It is easier to dip them.
The crisco is doing the same thing as those paramount crystals. But the crisco is much cheeper.
