Candy Melts

I have used Wilton Candy melts since I starting making cake bites then cakepops.  Recently I have been having issues, the candy dosent melt as thin as it used to it seems.  I did try Merkens once....ONCE and we remember my 6am night with the cracks.  I have tried adding paramount crystals but it hasn't helped.  I use the Wilton chocolate pro as below and keep it on warm and off during my dipping.  I just don't know what I can do differently. 

Does anyone have any suggestions?  I want to try new and fun shapes of cake pops but with out a good dip they will never be how I want them to be.


  1. Nooooo... I despise Wilton's! Do you have AC Moore near you? I swear by Make'n Mold brand. Each and everytime I try Wilton's I get this pasty consistency, it sucks. ps: paramount crystals sound like something Harry Potter would use, not a baker, lol!

  2. I do have them here...I will get some of those candy melts....wishing I didnt stock up on the wiltons when it was on sale! Gonna try to take some back!
