I tried thinning out the candy melts by adding some shortening to it but it became clumpy. When do I add it? Before I microwave or after?

Try butter or cream. All my ganace recipes use butter and cream. Melt first, thin after and only a little bit at a time. A little bit of thinning goes a looong way!

To thin candy melts, add oil or paramount crystals.

Cool! I found the candy melts a bit too thick to properly coat the cake ball pops and get a nice smooth coating.

So, I will try these tips next time. I've heard of shortening.

Paramount crystals, vegetable oil or any pure oil. No butter, cream or milk, those still have a lot of water in them and can make the candy seize.

Just had to add that I was JUST having this trouble while coating my cake pops and I added Crisco, about a tsp per cup of wafers. Worked like a charm!
