Smooth Out The Chocolate On The Back Of The Molds
by Ingrid Wade
What is the best way to smooth out chocolate on the back of the molds?
I love making molded chocolates and now friends are asking me to make them for children's birthday parties, etc.
I use the clear plastic molds and usually spoon the melted chocolate into each individual piece.
I've been using a small spatula to smooth out the back of the mold. Is this the best way to do this or is there a secret I don't know about.
Also, I am going to be making lollipops for the first time for my granddaughter's 6th birthday in Feb. Any helpful hints? How to place the stick, etc?
Thanks so much.
The way I smooth out the chocolate on the backs of the mold is just by tapping the mold on the sides and on the counter top. That helps remove air bubbles and smooth out the top surface of the chocolate.
When you make your lollipops, be sure to twist or roll the stick after placing it in the chocolate mold. That will help it to remain secure in the candy when it is set.
If you don't have the sticks yet, you can pick them up at Candyland Crafts
along with anything else you may need for the project.
I hope you'll come and show off your lollipops for your granddaughter's birthday. We'd love to see them!
