Spray Your Mold?

by Stacy

Should you spray your mold with non-stick spray before piping in chocolate?

Hi Stacy,

I don't grease my candy molds at all. I have read that some people do lightly spray their chocolate molds, but it isn't usually recommended.

The exception may be if you are mixing something really sticky with them like marshmallows or caramel.

Just be sure your candy making molds are clean and dry before using. If you allow the chocolate to completely set (maybe even pop them into the fridge or freezer for a few minutes) you shouldn't have any trouble getting the molded chocolate candy out.

Have fun!

How To Keep Chocolate From Sticking To Cast Iron Mold... NEW
by: Angie from chocolate-candy-mall.com

Hi Dan,
If you are using a cast iron mold to make molded chocolates, I can see why you may be concerned about the chocolates sticking to the mold.

Do you plan to chill the chocolate in the molds to help them set? If so, that may solve the problem as the chocolate is likely to contract when chilled and release automatically from the cast iron mold.

I haven't actually used a cast iron mold for candy making, so I can't give you the "voice of experience" answer that I would prefer. However, there may be someone else who has done so and can add their advice - fingers crossed.

If you go ahead and experiment with spraying and/or not spraying the molds prior to filling them, do come back and let us know the results so future candy makers can learn from your experience.
