Chocolate In The Freezer

by Trisha May
(Philipines Pasay City)

It's about 3 days ago when I created these chocolates..

Actually it's my first time to do it, so I tried. :)

After I melted this RICOA 8 oz bar (unsweetened) I put in these ingredients:

1/4 cup of sugar
3 spoons of vanilla
1 condensed milk
1 evaporated milk

I dunno if I'm right. I'm just trying :))
but the taste is great.

But my problem is when I put them on the freezer.
until now (3 days) still its not freeze like a candy :(

What will I do?.. I already put them on a molder.

Thanks, I hope you can help me.

Here some of the pics.

Hi Trisha,

Did you make this recipe up on your own or did you get it from somewhere else?

Because you have added the evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk you've changed the consistency of the chocolate and it is no longer really the type of chocolate you would use for making molds. It's not going to set because it is too liquid.

However, you can still make a yummy dessert with those ingredients, and even make it set (without putting chocolate in the freezer), but you would need to cook the mixture to a certain temperature. You can read about the candy syrup stages to help you understand how it works.

If you are just starting out and want to make molded chocolate, try following one of the many recipes available here at chocolate candy mall to get you used to candy making and then experiment from there.

Making Moldd Chocolate Candy
by: Angie

Hi Trisha,

Don't feel too bad. I think what has happened is that you have purchased unsweetened chocolate in the hopes of making molded chocolate candy that is sweet and yummy.

If you want to make molded chocolate candy, it is best to just buy the chocolate bars that are already sweetened because you don't really want to add anything (except maybe a dash of flavoring if desired) to melted chocolate when you are making molded chocolates.

When you add ingredients like sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk and other ingredients, you are going to end up with something more like chocolate fudge.

Don't be discouraged and give up. Candy making is really fun and as you discovered, even your mistakes can still be quite yummy. :)
