candy melts - did I just get a bad batch?? - Page 2

There's a brand I can only find at AC Moore, maybe Make and Mold icon_confused.gif does work well! I've noticed also, if you mix brands, something weird happens too..HTH and if it gets grainy or hard, use a little shortening! Or the Paramount crystals (same thing though)
Everything I see in the world, I think of what cake pan it's shaped like!

The paramont crystals just lay on top? Wait a minute, chocolate doesn't melt like butter. It holds its shape. You heat it in microwave for a bit at 50% power and then stir. Then heat somemore if needed until the chocolate is smooth. The paramont crystals melt and mix in as you stir the chocolate. You can not tell if the chocolate is right without stiring it.

Guittard Melt'n Mold works really well, too; I actually prefer them over Merckens.

For anybody who lives near a Winco Foods, they just got their holiday shipment of Melt'n Mold in...I stocked up with enough to last several months, since Winco doesn't carry them year-round. 1.98 / 12 oz.[/list]

Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread and pumpkin pie.
