I'm trying to melt some white chocolate to cover oreos to put on top of a cake and the white chocolate is just too thick. Any tips on how to thin it out enough for dipping.

Thanks in advance,

I don't know how to thin in out, but I had this problem last year and learned that I was melting the white chocolate at a too high of a temp. It has to be melted lower than the regular chocolate. I pitched mine.

One of these CC's might be able to help you:

If your chocolate is older, then you will need paramount crystals to help "melt" the product more so than just the heat. We learned, and found out that it works!, to melt for 30 seconds, stir, melt 30 seconds, stir, and melt in 20 second intervals and stir until at the desired melting stage.

I melted mine at 50% power in the microwave and added a little veggie oil. Worked great. Do short bursts, I left mine in for about 15-20 seconds and stirred, 15-20 seconds and stirred...until melted completely. Every microwave is different so you might want to do it in 15 second bursts.
