I am using fresh white chocolate chips and I am able to melt the chips but it is not pourable. it's just real thick and comes out of a pastry bag as if I am making eclairs.

- Add some oil to it oli- that should help - CathyZ from Kauai - 3:07pm on 02/05/17

- Did you use chips or melting chocolate? Chips are more difficult to melt without - LisainLA - 12:08am on 02/06/17
- I used chips, they melted just fine, but it is obvious it needs thinning to flow. [NT] - oli - 10:51am on 02/06/17
- Chips have paraffin in them to keep them being ''chips"--they don't really melt--maybe "soffen". [NT] - Charley - 12:00pm on 02/06/17
- I'm not much of a baker but I did Google your issue and found lots of answers, one was adding cream - KarenNoCA - 7:04pm on 02/05/17
- Don't add *cold* liquid to chocolate that is hot. It will seize immediately. Heat [LINK] - MarilynFL - 7:23am on 02/06/17
- I wouldn't recommend chips. They are designed not to melt easily. Most stores [LINK] - MarilynFL - 7:17am on 02/06/17
- Also, *white* chocolate is even more tempermental when melting. The hotter - MarilynFL - 7:19am on 02/06/17
- Thanks for all the suggestions. [NT] - oli - 10:54am on 02/06/17
