Melting directions: Melt Ghirardelli candy making and dipping wafers carefully. No need for tempering. Be sure all containers and utensils are dry.
Microwave method: Place Ghirardelli candy making and dipping wafers in microwave-safe container. Microwave at half power or defrost setting for 30 seconds. Stir thoroughly (product keeps its original shape until stirred). If not completely melted, continue to microwave at 15 second intervals and stir until smooth. Overheating will cause wafers to burn.
Stove top method: Place Ghirardelli candy making and dipping wafers in top pan of a double boiler over low heat. Stir constantly until smooth and melted. Do not allow water to boil.
For use in chocolate fountains: Add 1 tsp vegetable oil for 12 oz of candy making and dipping wafers, then melt according to melting directions.
