How to Make Pink Chocolate Melts
Pink chocolate melts are a convenient and fun way to make dipped fruit, cakes, truffles, and other delicious treats. They are very easy to use and can be decorated in many ways to fit any occasion.
What is the difference between candy melts and chocolate?
They are often used for birthday party treats, baby showers, and other events. They are also a popular choice for creating chocolate lollipops.
The trick to making a smooth chocolate coating with candy melts is to temper them before using. This is done by warming them in the microwave for a few minutes, stirring frequently until they are melted and smooth.
One way to do this is to add a little shortening to the candy melts before using them. This will help them to become a thinner consistency and will prevent the chocolate from slipping off the item that you are dipping.
Another way to thin out candy melts is to mix them with a small amount of water. This will help them to melt more smoothly and will prevent them from becoming too thick or clumpy.
There are also products that are specifically designed to help with thinning out melted chocolate, carob or candy melts. These include Paramount Crystals, which are made with hydrogenated palm kernel oil and can be added to the melted chocolate or carob to thin it out.
For more color options, try mixing colored candy melts with white ones. This will give you more options for how to dye the chocolate and will help you to create unique shades that you might not find in a store.
