How to melt Candy Melts 101



Place your candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave for 1 minute only at 50% power.


Stir. They won’t look melted, but that is okay,  stir + stir + stir. Place back in Microwave for another 30 seconds at 50% power.


Stir and stir again,  It will still be thick, but stir well for about a minute. Place back in the microwave for  30 seconds at 50% power again.


Stir again for 2 minutes, then check the temperature on your candy melts. If they are warmer, just set down the bowl and let them sit for a few minutes to cool off. If it’s still clumps,  just walk away and let it sit for a few minutes.

After a few minutes try stirring again and you will find the clumps are melting and it will be getting thinner.Repeat until you have nicely melted candy melts!


Shortening is the answer if the candy melt doesn’t want to cooperate ! If you find your candy melts are too thick, add a spoonful of Crisco shortening. Once it is stirred in, let it sit for a few minutes. The warm candy melts will melt the shortening, which will in turn thin out the candy melts.
