Can you put caramel in candy molds?
I was wondering can you put caramel in candy molds? Is it easy to do? Or can it be done?
Are you referring to putting caramel in candy molds by itself or inside of chocolate (as centers)?
You can certainly put caramel inside molded chocolates. It's really not that hard. You just put the melted chocolate in the mold first, allow it to partially set, then tip the excess back into the bowl leaving an outer shell in the mold.
Then you put the caramel in leaving a little bit of room at the top to cover it up with melted chocolate again.
If you are referring to using JUST caramel...
I suppose you COULD put caramel in molds, but you may have trouble with it sticking. If you decide to give it a try, I would butter or oil each mold to prevent the caramel from sticking to the mold and defeating the purpose.
Let me know how it all turns out! :)
