I use disposable decorating bags. Just easier for me I guess. And less mess. Also that way if I have any leftover I just leave it in the bag and tie it up and place it in a tupperware container for the next time.

I have a quesiton for ya'll...these looks soo adorable and I would love to try some out but can you use regular chocolates for them or do you have to use chocolale melts? And how do you do it where the chocolate is softer and not so hard to bite into?

TIA

I have been using candy melts for awhile now and I always add crisco to them. I makes it a bit more smooth and not as thick. I have also noticed that when I use the crisco, it is easy to bite into it. I also do not make them very thick.
I put them in disposable bags and use that to put into the mold or I have also used those plastic bottles. Both work pretty good.

I use the plastic bottles made for candy making to melt and pour.

qtkaylassweets, how much Crisco do you use per bag of candymelts?

I put about 2-3 tablespoons in for 1 bag. Sometimes I put even more. I first melt the melts in a bowl in the microwave then I add the crisco. I take my spoon and dip it and see how it drips off of the spoon. If it looks thin enough, then I put it in my bag or bottle. If it is still a bit thick, I just add little by little until it thins out. I guess one day I should get an actual measurement.

I always add the crisco whenever I am doing things with the candy melts. I use to use those paramount crystals (i think thats what they were) but those got expensive. That is when my pastry teacher at school told me about the crisco.

doesnt' the crisco give the candymelts a greasy feel and taste?

The Crisco didn't give the CandyMelts a greasy quality when I needed to add it to some red candy. I've only used Ghiradelli chocolate for the Oreo molds, so I don't know how the CandyMelts would be for this. When I do other molds I use the CandyMelts, and never added Crisco.

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.

So you canuse reg. chocolate for this... does it taste different from candy melt? was it sifter to bite into? does it make the cookie soggy?

So to do this you put choc. in the bottom first coat all around, let set, then add a cookie & add the ret of the chocolate?

The Ghiradelli is actually "dipping chocolate" (double chocolate flavor) that I bought at Sam's. It's very chocolately, very good quality. I pour enough chocolate into the mold to almost fill half way. Rattle the mold to get rid of any air bubbles. Push the Oreo down into the mold, then pour in more chocolate. Rattle the mold again. I fill just enough to cover the Oreo, which is not quite to the top of the mold, but almost. To make the chocolate set faster, you can put it in the refrigerator.
If you use real chocolate, you would have to temper it first. This intimidates me, so I just use the dipping chocolate!

Could you tell me how much crisco you would add to a package of candy melts? TIA

And if you get in 3dmolds.com mailing list, you get a discount on the molds too... I think it is 5%, but it's better than no discount!

I just ordered the ribbon mold and blossom mold from 3dmolds.com. I've got to do a breast cancer fundraiser in june, so i thought i could use white chocolate and tint the ribbon pink. I can't wait to see how they turn out. Thanks for the suggestion

i have a stupid question. I bought the ribbon oreo molds. i am going to do pink and blue for a SIDS fundraiser on 04/20. I cannot find pink or blue chocolate candy melts where i live. Could i use the wilton paste coloring (that i use for cakes) and tint melted white chocolate? I'm not sure if it will work or not. any ideas apreciated.
