Paramount Crystals are a versatile ingredient used to help the melting of chocolate coating, carob, and yogurt coating. Made of vegetable fat, paramount crystals are most popularly used to aid in the melting and thinning of chocolate candy coating. The crystals act as a thinning agent, allowing for easier coating, dipping, and drizzling of chocolate. They are a popular choice among professional chocolatiers, bakers, and candy makers. They are odorless and tasteless and will not alter the flavor of your chocolate wafers. This makes them a better choice than coconut oil, shortening, and wax.

How to Use Paramount Crystals

Start with adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of Paramount Crystals per pound of chocolate wafers (also known as chocolate melts, candy melts, almond bark, and confectionery coating) until desired consistency is reached. Up to 1/4 of a cup may be used.

4 oz bag of paramount crystals = 8 Tablespoons
1 lb bag of paramount crystals = 32 Tablespoons

When to Use Paramount Crystals

  • When you want smooth and creamy, easy to work with melted chocolate wafers.
  • When working with pre-colored chocolate wafers.

  • When you want to easily dip treats.

Melt your paramount crystals before adding them to your melted chocolate wafers. We love the control and fluid chocolate this method creates.
