Well, I did one and after I got my results, I am here looking for hellllllllp!
I buttered the rabbit, but not enough I suppose.
No matter what I did, it would not release!
I refrigerated, I froze, I put in hot water, I put hot damp tea towels I heated in the microwave. Nothing worked!!!!!!
I just put them in the oven to melt the chocolate and scraped it into a bowl (wasted a lot I might add).
I washed the rest of the chocolate out and here I am!
I’m thinking of using cooking oil.
Can’t find any articles to help me!🥴

Hello, I am working on using cast iron to make chocolate molds. I should have a test run done with a corn on the cob mold soon.

When I am done I'll be sure to explain the method that worked for me and show photos.

Thanks for that info. on using a gingerbread shaped cast iron mold for making chocolate. I look forward to hearing your further updates (and seeing photos when they are ready).

I wonder if vegetable oil would leave less of a residue?

I was testing out a gingerbread cast iron mold that was meant for gingerbread cookie recipe and decided to use chocolate instead. Well I didn't think it was possible. However, it can be done and I will try to upload a picture when I do a second run. First you have to brush it with shortening, using a cooking spray may work I did not try this method yet. Then after I've tempered the chocolate I poured it into the mold. Refrigerate to harden the chocolate. Then I ran a knife along the outside edges and the chocolate started to release. I gently tapped it out and left aside to dry. The only problem is the shortening left a residue. I'm still experimenting to see which method will works.

How About Being Our Test Pilot?
by: Angie

Hi Diana,

That's a good question. I haven't tried it myself, but I honestly can't see why you couldn't. It definitely won't hurt the chocolate. :-)

I guess the hardest thing may be removing the chocolate from the mold. I think that can be remedied (if it becomes a problem) by popping the whole thing into the freezer for a little bit. That should cause the chocolate to release itself from the mold.

I actually think it is a wonderful idea. In fact, I just dashed over to eBay to see if there were any listed on auction. There are! :-)

Well, give it a try and let us know how they turn out or any difficulties you have. You can be the test pilot for us!

If you are able, take a photo of your finished product and send it to me. I'll add it here for others to be inspired.
