There is no question that Easter chocolate molds are a great and easy want to make your own homemade candies. However, if you are new to using these, you may need a few tips to help you use them successfully. When you know what you are doing, you can have some extremely cute candies to give your friends and family members.

Add some Oil

When you are melting your candy melts or chocolate, it is a good idea to add one or two teaspoons of oil. This will provide your chocolate with a finish that is glossier. You won’t even taste this addition. It may also be a good idea to avoid adding extracts such as colored dyes when melting the chocolates, as this may cause them to get harder and make it more difficult to get them in the Easter chocolate molds.

Chocolate, Stick, Chocolate

When adding your chocolate to your mold, you should add some (about halfway full in the mold) and then add your stick. Once in place, finish filling up the mold. You want to ensure the stick is buried in the middle because you don’t want to be able to see it through the candy or fall out.

Avoid Overfilling the Mold

If you overfill the mold, then it is going to result in an edge all the way around your candy. If you happen to end up with a rim, you should make sure to carefully shave it off. This will help the chocolate look better and be a better gift.

As you can see, there are a few tips that may help you make your chocolates more successful. When using Easter chocolate molds make sure to keep the tips here in mind to have great looking and tasting candies.
