How Much Chocolate Do I Use?
How much chocolate do I use when molding lollipops?
I have never made candy of any kind and am attempting to try my hand at something that looks like it should be pretty simple.
My daughter is getting married and using a butterfly theme. We thought it would be nice to make butterfly lollypops to use as her favors.
I found some 2 in. molds, but I'm not sure how much chocolate they will hold. I need to know how much to purchase as I don't want to have too much. None of us need the extra calories but I want to make sure I have enough.
Please help me out!
'How much chocolate do I use?' is never a difficult question for me. The more the better! But, I do understand your dilemma. :)
An average lollipop mold uses about 1 ounce of chocolate. There are 16 ounces in a pound, so you should be able to get 16 molded chocolate lollipops out of each pound of chocolate you melt.
I think it's great that you are going to leap off into the realm of candy making with butterfly lollipop wedding favors for your daughter!
I hope you'll take some photos and show off your work to all of us when you're finished. You can use the same form that you used to ask this question. :) Have fun!
