Preventing Condensation on Chocolate Lollipops
Need Help Preventing Condensation on Chocolate Lollipops!
I just started making chocolate lollipops and have found a real love for it!!
The problem is this past weekend I made lollipops for a baby shower, and once I took the chocolate out of the molds I noticed that the chocolate were damp and sticky.
How do I prevent this? I also noticed a problem with the lollipops sticking to the packaging. Is it possible that I'm using the wrong type of bags?
I really enjoy making the lollipops and would love to continue with my new found passion.
Congrats on your venture into the world of chocolate making! :) It's fun, isn't it?
I'm guessing that you put your molded chocolates into the refrigerator or freezer to set? That's usually the case when you get condensation.
If the weather is too hot to allow the chocolate to set at room temperature, it's fine to place them in the fridge or freezer for a little while. Just try to monitor the chocolates and take them out as soon as possible.
Release the chocolate lollipops from the molds and let them return to room temperature before packaging.
I don't really think the type of favor bag you are using is the problem. Condensation on chocolate is almost always related to temperature changes.
