I love to buy chocolate candy molds of all different shapes, sizes, and patterns. They are actually quite irresistible to me.
I admit that I own a few designs I haven't even used yet, but I'm sure that will be remedied before too long.
You can sometimes buy a chocolate candy mold or two at your local grocery or department store, but I doubt you will find much of a selection. I've even picked up the occasional candy mold at a garage sale.
Fortunately, for you and me, there are some terrific resources online these days that have a huge variety.
It amazes me the hundreds of different choices for those of us who do want to buy chocolate candy molds of our own. My husband always says I take forever to make up my mind about things. I suppose that there is a smidgen of truth to that.
Imagine me pouring over a wide selection of chocolate candy molds! Scary thought...
...at least for him.
I, on the other hand, have a great time dithering between petite little teddy bears, tea cups and saucers, flowers, leaves, crosses, hearts, the list is endless.
Perhaps I can win him over to my way of thinking if I buy the chocolate candy molds I saw the other day that were adorably shaped like tools. Hmmm... ...now there's an idea.
One of the things I love about buying molds is that they are really inexpensive. You can purchase chocolate candy molds for as little as $1-2.00 each. Now that is a bargain in my book.
There are different brands available on the market. One of the most popular and well respected makers of chocolate candy molds is Wilton. They have a wonderful variety, and will last years if you care for your molds properly.
I must be fair and tell you - - it is very easy to get carried away when you start browsing through all the available choices. Don't say I didn't warn you! :) Have fun...
