STEP 1:

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

STEP 2:

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

STEP 3:

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.

STEP 4:

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!

STEP 5:

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.
