can get the molds, the chocolate, colored candy melts, cellophane bags,

Your only problem now will be making up your mind! :)
you have selected your Easter candy molds, chocolate, and other
supplies, you are ready to begin.
Here are some step-by-step guidelines
for making your own chocolate molded candy.
- Prepare the chocolate. For the best possible results, I recommend that you temper the chocolate.
You will get more professional and delicious results. However, if you
are just planning to make special Easter morning surprises for the
kids, you don't have to go to the extra trouble. They won't know the
difference, and the chocolate probably won't last that long anyway. :)
You can melt the chocolate in a double boiler over hot, not boiling, water. Stir until fully melted and smooth.
could also choose to melt the chocolate in the microwave. Only heat
the chocolate for 30 seconds at a time, and stir well between each
heating. Be careful not to overheat.
- Pour melted chocolate into your Easter candy molds.
Depending on your mold choices, you can simply fill the molds with the
melted chocolate and allow it to set, or chill to help the process along
If you decide to make hollow chocolates, you will
need to either "paint" the chocolate in with a small brush, or fill the
molds and after setting a few minutes, tip upside down to drain out the
excess in the center.
Also, you can use colored candy melts to paint the details in the mold
before filling with the chosen chocolate. If you choose to go that
route, be sure to let the colored chocolate set each time before adding
All of this fiddly work takes time, but you will really love the results.
- Remove candy from molds and wrap.
Check the bottom of your clear molds to see if the chocolate has
pulled away. You may have to chill them a bit longer if they aren't
Another trick is just to simply tap them
gently on the counter top to jiggle them loose. After tipping the
chocolates out, you can place them in cellophane bags with little twist
ties or ribbon for decoration.
If you have chosen molds that
need to be paired, like two halves of an Easter egg, simply melt a
little more chocolate and paint the seems with the melted chocolate
holding the two pieces in place to allow them to adhere.
The wonderful thing about Easter candy molds
is that you can make them as simple or as complex as you like. You can
go with a plain solid chocolate mold, or get creative with colors,
sprinkles, frosting, fillings, etc.
You can even make chocolate molded lollipops.
It's all up to you and how much time and effort you want to invest in
your Easter candy molds. Another great thing is that they are
inexpensive and fun. I hope you enjoy the experience to the fullest!
