Sticking Chocolate In Molds
(Rapid River MI)
I have a problem with sticking chocolate in molds.
I can't get the chocolate to come out of molds?
I ended up with just pieces of smashed chocolate.
How do I know if candy is set enough?
You can't do much about the smashed chocolate, but you can remelt it and try again. This time, lightly oil or butter your molds by wiping them with a greased paper towel.
This will allow the chocolate candy to release from the molds much more easily. After using your molds, there is no need to wash them in soap and water. Just give them a rinse if necessary, or simply wipe them with a clean paper towel. This will allow them to stay "seasoned" so they work even better with use.
You can usually tell that the chocolate is set when you hold the mold above your head and look at it from below. You should be able to see that the chocolate has released from the mold.
