Candy Melts - Page 2

You can get paramount crystals at Country Kitchens. Just enter Paramount Crystals in the search box at the top of the page. Here's the link:

The candy melts from Country Kitchen also melt much better and smoother than the Wilton Candy Melts. My daughter and I did over 3000 pieces of candy last year for a friend's wedding. We made the table favors, wedding-related candy pieces in a champagne glass that had their names and the wedding date etched in it. The Country Kitchen melts stayed workable much longer than the Wilton melts.

I've seen in several recipes for dipping fruits that is says to mix in a bit of crisco. I don't know if it makes it creamier or what. A friend of mine makes to die for chocolate dipped strawberries and she mixes a bit of crisco in with hers. The chocolate doesn't break apart when you bite into it ~ maybe that's what the crisco is for.

Ever since I read on this board to use the paramount crystals. I use them all the time. The white choclate never melts right, so I was very happy when it found those paramount crystals at my local Cake Decorating store icon_lol.gif

Paramount crystals are used to aid in the melting of carob, chocolate, and yogurt. It will help make the coatings smooth and easier to pour into molds or will thin for ease in dipping and coating. Use up to 1/4 c per lb of coating. Add a little at a time in the melting process, stir between each addition, until you have your desired consistency.
