If you’re anything like me, you’ll have tons of fun with those new chocolate molds. My son is a huge fan of legos, so he’s just as happy as I am to eat Lego chocolates. Here are the very simple steps to make your chocolates.
You can melt the chocolate in a bain-marie. I prefer to place them in a micro-wave at 50% power, and mix it every minute. Then you’ll need a bit of patience to fill in the molds…
I’m using a small metal tea spoon for the smaller molds. This way, it’s easier to control the amount of chocolate without overflowing. For the larger molds, I use a measuring cup: the spout makes it much quicker to fill in the molds.
Next, make sure you tap the molds slightly so that the chocolate fills in completely each spot in a smooth manner. Let the chocolates cool down.
When they are set-up, you can release the chocolates from the molds. The big difference between molds made of plastic and silicone is in how easily the latter ones will bend. I really liked this ! It’s also super easy to clean those molds.
And now… enjoy your chocolates !
Those silicone molds can be used for a variety of other things, such as to prepare ice cubes, jello (fruit jelly), crayons, sweets, soaps etc…
As you can imagine, I’ll be back soon with more projects. Because I’m also a huge fan of Lego building blocks !
