      • "Needs considerable thinning"

      Not the easiest to use, but the easiest black candy product to find

      10 oz bag of black candy melts. Certified Kosher.

      Wilton candy melts are useful for many different projects. Some ways that I use them are for dipping cake pops, molding into candies to use as cupcake toppers, and drizzling on top of desserts such as cake pops, brownies, and cookies.

      The black candy melts are excellent to use for Halloween, wedding, and other desserts. I have made black cat cake pops with them, and have used them to make cake pops that look like groom's tuxedos. You can also thin out the candy melts and use a piping bag to pipe small details onto desserts.

      I do find I need to thin out Wilton candy melts in general, with melted vegetable shortening and/or vegetable oil. The black candy melts need a significant amount of thinning, and by the time the consistency is thin enough to be used, you may need to put the finished product into the refrigerator or freezer to ensure that it sets. With cake pops, I would only use the candy after having coated the pop with another color first, such as with the tuxedos. If not, you have a pop that will smear even at room temperature because the candy had to be thinned out so much.

      In general, I have had better luck with Make N Mold brand candy melts, because they seem to thin out more readily. However, I have not seen Make N Mold offer a black candy melt product. This product used to be available only around Halloween, so I really had to stock up. But now it is a basic item at craft stores year round, which is convenient.

      Also, be sure to use them in a place that isn't humid, otherwise the candy will seize up and have lumps in it. Humidity makes it considerably more difficult to thin out the candy.
