What are Candy Melts?

post #1 of 4

This is a crazy stupid question....but is this a brand name, or does
any chocolate for candy making work? It's for icing, not candy, but I thought this would be the board that would have all the info!


Thanks!

Candy melts are those little colored discs that you melt in a double boiler or microwave. You can flavor them to whatever your heart desires.

also - when you melt and mold the candy melts, once they are set, they will get back to the same texture and hardness as the original pellets. so, unless you're going to do a chocolate transfer or something, i wouldn't recommend using them to ice anything!
wilton makes them, as does merckens and another company that i can't remember right now!

I have a question about candy melts. If I need a particular color can I add coloring to white or do I have to get colored candy melts? I really don't want to buy a bag if I only need a small amount of a color...but I will if it's better. Also, I didn't know you could add flavoring to them..I thought they were either chocolate or vanilla. Do you use just regular flavored extract?
