How To Make Candy Melts Smooth

Candy melts are great for dipping apples, cake pops, and other tasty treats. However, sometimes they end up being lumpy, which is not a desirable look.

Let’s get started!


01 One bag of candy melts

02 1-2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening or oil melts (such as EZ Melts or Paramount Crystals)

In a saucepan over low-medium heat, melt your candy melts, stirring occasionally.


You can also melt them in a microwave-safe bowl, microwaving in 3o second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted.


Add in the vegetable shortening or oil flakes to your candy melts.  Start by adding one teaspoon in and then thoroughly mix it together.


If the candy melts are still not thin enough, add in another teaspoon of the thinning agent and stir until combined. This will make your candy melts smooth and easy to work with.
