Candy Cups

I making using a mold to make chocolate candy cups for a baby shower (need to make 80). After taking the mold out of the freezer, the candy cups are breaking when I am taking them out of the mold. HELP!

hi! have you tried putting two layers of chocolate in the cups? coat it once, let it solidify, then put another one on and let it solidify.

If you have tempered your chocolate first, you should not be sticking the cups in the freezer anyway, as this will create condensation on the chocolate which will then either have to be wiped away very quickly, or will spoil your cups.

My guess is that tempered or no, your cups are cracking because the low, low temperature gained by the freezer is making your chocolate very brittle. It's all a matter of knowing your ingredient - chocolate and the freezer, unless you are making chocolate-covered banana pops, really aren't good friends.

Sounds like they are just a little too thin and fragile. Maybe let the mold set up a little more before dumping out the excess chocolate to give you a thicker wall, and hopefully more forgiving cups.
