I have a problem with the melting wafers as they have added oils in them that help them melt smoothly. The best option is to go online and look for coverture chocolate. You can purchase it by the case, or in smaller amounts. It is the chocolate that candy makers use. It melts very nicely and can be tempered to make amazing chocolate truffles, or filled chocolates. I made easter bubbies with coverture chocolate and one of our local restaurants used them in their displays. I used milk chocolate for the bodies, but small containers of white chocolate, each of which were colored with paste food coloring. I was able to paint the colors in to make the inner ear pink, the bow-tie black, the vest was light brown, etc.
Coverture chocolate will give you the best results when making chocolate confections.
If you must use Nestle's chocolate chips, place 1/4 cup milk into a saucepan, heat the milk to scalding temperature, then stir the package of chocolate chips into the hot milk. I won't seize the chocolate. Add a little salt as it will improve the chocolate flavor. You won't be able to temper it, but it will be smooth and taste great. I make hot fudge for DW out of both Nestlie's Milk Chocolate or Ghiradelli Chocolate chips. I have made it out of four large Lindoor Lindt milk chocolate bars. That was really good.
Hope that helps.
