Crisco to chocolate ratio

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What is a good ratio of crisco to chocolate when melting chocolate for dipping? I'm new to the candy field so all you pros out there, help a sista out!

Are you using melts or real chocolate?
I normally only use a very little crisco when I'm dipping and I just add a little at a time until it seems right, thinner than just melted candy but thick enough to give a good coat still.
If your candy gets water in it you can add crisco to save it.
