Hi Marcia! I usually use a microwave, too. What sometimes happens to me is the chocolate cools as I'm assembling. So, it'll be a good consistency for the first few candies, then too thick toward the end. What you can do in this case is rewarm (I do 10-second bursts) and re-stir (which helps evenly distribute the heat). Hope this helps!

I suggest you stop using your microwave and switch to a different method.

My first choice would be a double boiler.

Anyhow, best of luck.
