Can I Use Jelly To Fill Chocolates?

Can I use jelly to fill chocolates?

Hello. First off, I love this site/blog!!

I'm a novice candy maker and I have a question. I've made candy once before in candy molds, but I want to try filling them with even more goodness!

I haven't found a jelly type filler, only cremes. Can I use everyday jelly for a filler? If so would I have to thicken it any?

Thanks so much in advance for your help!

Hi Madalena,

I'm so glad you are enjoying Chocolate Candy Mall!

I don't see why you couldn't use jam or jelly as a filler for your molded chocolate candy. Jam and jelly are usually not overly runny so you shouldn't need to thicken them.

Just talking about it is starting to make my mouth water!

If you do want something thicker, you can make your own flavored filling by whipping up a batch of Turkish Delight and using it to fill the chocolates before the mixture sets all the way.

The basic ingredients needed are granulated sugar, cornstarch, cream of tartar, water, powdered sugar, and your chosen flavoring extract.

Let me know what you end up doing and how it turns out. :)
