This was probably one of my funnest moments in the kitchen! I love making chocolate. It’s rich delicate texture combined with sweet lusciousness is like no other! This is a fun activity for the whole family. The kids will love making chocolate and experimenting with different creations. Memories to last a lifetime.

First you get your desired molds make sure they are clean and dry completely dry. Then you get your melting chocolate poured out in microwave safe containers pour out about a cup of chocolate melt for 30 seconds in the microwave stir melt 30 more seconds more until completely melted.

Once the chocolate is completely melted you can use a teaspoon as a measuring device or a syringe fill your syringe with 5 to 10 mL of chocolate of your desired colors in the mold if you want one color you can stick with the teaspoon if you want two to three colors per mold you will need to use a syringe. If you desire to make a meticulous design on your molds you can use a toothpick to put a tiny bit of mold in each tray and then pour over a different color. You can also use sprinkles or colorful chocolate pieces to add to the décor of your chocolate.

Once the mold is completely filled you can overfill scrape with a pastry scraper to make sure you’ve gotten all the excess chocolate off the top of the mold. Then lift your mold up and down on the counter tapping it on the counter to make sure all the excess air bubbles have been released.

Once this is done put your mold in a freezer safe pan and freeze for 10 to 15 minutes. Once chocolate is completely hard take the chocolate from the freezer and extracted from the mold. Repeat the steps above to make multiple molds of chocolate.

Chocolate can remain at room temperature if it is around 75° if it is hotter than that please refrigerate and enjoy!
