    My candy melts are not fluid enough for dipping – how do I think the chocolate down? I am using the Bright White candy melts

    I am trying trying to coat nutter butter cookies in white chocolate and will put mini choc chips on for eyes to make a cutesy ghost for my daughters class she teaches at school

      Hi Loretta,

      You can add some EZ Thin Dipping Aid or solid vegetable shortening to thin out the Candy Melts. I would advise against using liquid vegetable oil – it can be harder to control and could make the melts too liquid. Add just a little EZ Thin or shortening at a time until you reach desired consistency.

    I could not be more disappointed with this product. I read many reviews and watch what videos I could find. I have used the pot several times and altered the process to try and elicit the proper function but could not. It seems to heat to high (at least mine , maybe I got a bad one). On melt mode it heats to better than 150*, and on warm mode it is around 130*. Both are to high for a fluid chocolate and often cause the chocolate/melts to seize . It is a great idea and I still use it. But for anything that requires a pourable chocolate I have to go back to the double boiler. Shame, really, because I like everything about this product except the way it works.

    I really just had a question about melting the Candy Melts when you have to use a double boiler? I got rid of my microwave oven and haven’t purchased the Wilton Candy machine.

    • Desiree Smith says:

      Hi Mercedes,

      The dimensions of the box the melting pot comes in are 10.69″W x 6.44″D x 8.49″H. I hope that helps.

    I see in your videos a divided liner, like the one in the green and white shot glasses. Are those available?

    I’m having difficulty getting the melts to a ‘pour’ consistency. I have used the Wilton Melting Pot (only gets to a ‘softened’ consistency, and the double boiler. I have added Wilton Flakes, solid shortening, and even liquid veg oil. I also have a lot of air bubbles even with tapping the molds. What am I doing wrong?

    • Desiree Smith says:

      Hi Kerry, I shared your comment with our decorating room and they said the Candy Melts might be overheated. If that is the case, the only option may be to start over with a new bag of Candy Melts. If you were using a double boiler method, you may be getting some steam incorporated with the melts which could cause the thickness. The best way to melt them is in the microwave at 50% power. They advise against using vegetable oil; only the E-Z Thin flakes or solid shortening. Liquid oil has a hard time setting up. Air bubbles may occur from over working it with so much mixing. With the clear candy molds, tap the mold to release air bubbles. You can lift up the mold and take a look from the underside; if you still see air bubbles, take a toothpick and swirl it around the mold slowly. That should break them up.

    where can I find instructions for the candy melting pot?

  13. Sandra says:

    Do you offer a bigger melting pot? 4 to 6 cups?

  14. Sandra says:

    Do you offer a bigger pot? 4-6 cups?
    Also how long can the pot be plugged in on warm before the chocolate burns?

  15. Desiree Smith says:

    Hi Sandra,

    We do not offer a larger melting pot. If you keep the pot on the lower, warm setting, it should not burn the melts.
