Chocolate Candy Coating
Thin your chocolate to dip cookies in candy coating
- 1 cup candy melts can be found at Walmart or most craft stores
- 3-4 tablespoons of shortening
- microwave safe container
- Sprinkles optional
Place candy and shortening into microwave safe container (I found that an old cottage cheese container worked the best!) and melt for one minute. Remove and stir, then place back in the microwave for 30-second increments.
Once the chocolates are mostly melted, remove and stir to reach desired consistency. I wanted the chocolate pretty runny to make covering the cookies easier, so I added a bit more shortening. Just drop it in and stir into the heated chocolate until dissolved.
