Molded Chocolate

All I can say is... the endless possibilities of candy making if there is a bag of chocolate in my pantry. Seriously!!! All I need is variety of candy molds.

So two weeks ago, I posted an easy no baked snacks using melted chocolate. This post is even easier. I figure why not make my own chocolate candy. And it doesn't get easier than pouring the melted chocolate into different molds. They  are also perfect for lunchbox treats.

After making many molded chocolate, I prefer using silicon to plastic molds. For one thing, they are easier to release the chocolate treats. But these silicon molds are hard to find and much more expensive than the plastic ones. There are so many options out there, so choose any mold that is within your budget.

Molded Chocolate 

1/2 - 1 cup chocolate chips (semi sweet, dark, or white)
Varieties of candy molds
  1. Set the molds in a baking tray and set them aside.
  2. Place the chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl.
  3. Microwave the chocolate chips for 30 seconds.
  4. Stir then microwave it in 10 seconds interval until the chocolate is melted.
  5. Spoon the melted chocolate into the molds.
  6. Tap the molds a few times to get rid of the bubbles.
  7. Place the chocolate molds in the fridge until the chocolate sets.
  8. Once ready, turn the mold upside down and tape it a few times until the chocolate falls off. Enjoy the chocolate as is or use it to decorate your something sweeter, like a Halloween cupcake.
STORING: Keep the molded chocolate in an air tight container for up to 3 weeks.

Allergy Info: Use the chocolates according to your food allergy diet. I continue to use Enjoy Life chocolate as my kids' current diet is to avoid dairy and legumes. Currently, I cannot find a dairy free white chocolate.
