Making Chocolate Thinner
Whenever I am melting Chocolate I normally use Paramount Crystals making chocolate thinner. However, not everyone has Paramount Crystals on hand, but I have used Paraffin Wax to make chocolate thinner as well.
I like to cut the wax slabs in smaller chunks and use a Cheese Grinder (Hand Crank) and put the pieces in an air tight container.
This way you can use as much as desired so you can get it to your desired thinness and save the rest for another time. This will also save you time for your next project.
Thanks for the great tips for making chocolate thinner. Something that I've used for thinning out chocolate is Crisco shortening. I just put a teaspoon or so (as needed) to thin the chocolate, and it works pretty well.
For those not familiar with Paramount Crystals, you can get them at Candyland Crafts
for just a couple of bucks. They go a LONG way.
You can usually find food grade paraffin at your local grocery store - in the canning section.
Thanks again for the great tips. Hope to hear more from you in the future!
