I'm coating them in various candies so it doesn't have to be very sweet, just a little sweeter. would maple syrup be a good choice?

Have you tried a double boiler? Melt the chocolate, and then slowly stir in sugar a little bit at a time until it's melted into the chocolate.
I have not. I'll try that!

I would make a tablespoon or two of simple syrup, and add it to the double boiler as you are melting the chocolate.
