It's best to melt candy melts or reg. chocolate in a PLASTIC microwave safe bowl--fewer hot spots than glass. 30 second bursts at 50% power, stir, repeat until 90% melted then stir well to get out lumps.

If too thick for dipping, add PARAMOUNT CRYSTALS (found in cake deco stores) for pieces that set up shiny and snap when eaten. If you want a dull, soft finish, then add shortening or veg. oil. Parafin is no longer recommended as it isn't digested.

When choc. or melts set up cloudy, it means that they were overheated during melting and the fats have separated and are now coming to the surface during the cooling process.
