CHOCOLATE MOULDS – CREATE YOUR OWN SWEET TREATS

I love chocolate. It doesn’t matter if it’s white, milk or plain (dark) chocolate. But have you tried using it to create your own chocolate treats – be it for different holidays (like St. Valentine’s Day, Easter, Christmas) or for a personal special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.)

Since I’ve discovered the different chocolate moulds available on the market, I’ve created hundreds of little chocolates for my family celebrations or for festive presents. I’ve made hearts, bonbons, spoons, flowers, numbers, animals – all that you can think of.

The moulds are very easy to use, they are usually made from soft silicon and you would have no difficulties preparing the desired shapes.

Making your own chocolate treats would make the presents and/or decorations even more personal and special and you would make everyone happy, because who would say no to a chocolate (I don’t!).

Chocolate spoons and chocolate treatsChocolate spoon

Ingredients:

  • white chocolates

  • milk chocolates

  • plain (dark) chocolates

  • chilli powder

  • nuts (almond, walnut, hazelnut) – chopped

Preparation:

  1. Put every of the different types of chocolates in a bowl and melt over a boiling water

  2. Mix the white chocolate with desiccated coconut and the plain (dark) chocolate with chilli powder

For 100gr chocolate add 1-2tsp chilli powder – all depends how hot you prefer it and what kind of chilli powder you are using (mild or hot)

  1. Pour in the moulds you are using

For the chocolate spoons use any type of the chocolates (don’t add anything else, except cinnamon or other condiments you like in your coffee) and serve them with a hot latte or cappuccino

  1. Leave in the fridge till set. Enjoy!

My advice!

Experiment with different tastes and mix the chocolate you are using with your favourite things – different nuts, sultanas, dries fruit, marshmallows, popcorn, etc.

I LOVE ALL THE CHOCOLATE TREATS I CAN CREATE

I first tried to make chocolate treats using a chocolate moulds when some years ago I wanted to make some unique Christmas gifts for my colleagues and friends. And because they all went down like a real treat, I decided to use them to make my children’s cakes really special or to make a small surprise I can put in my husband’s lunch box. And I have never regretted buying any of the chocolate moulds I have.

Not only that, but I use them for different things: I bake small cakes or savoury treats in them to use for different parties or celebrations (in the silicon ones), the other I can use to shape food in any desired shape.

I believe in this product (chocolate moulds) and if you, like me, want to do something special without spending too much time fussing around, then try these and I am sure you will make the people you love very happy.

I know that different cooking and cake stores offer chocolate moulds you can use, even some pound-shops as well, but if you prefer to shop online (to save time and to shop around, being able to compare different products), Amazon usually has the best deals.

I hope you enjoyed my review and if you have any questions about how to use the chocolate moulds or you have a recipe for me how to make things differently, leave a comment below or get in touch with me.

All the best!

    These chocolates look awesome. Mouth watering.

    have you ever tried making your own actual chocolate? I have in the past, but it didn’t really taste like proper chocolate.

    As your recipes suggest, I think I’ll just try melting some real chocolate and mixing it with things like coconut, nuts and other flavours.

      Yes, I have tried to make chocolate before. It wasn’t as hard as the real chocolate, but it tasted nice. Looked more like chocolate spread. I should try to find the recipe again.

      I usually make chocolate treats using chocolate moulds for Christmas and Easter, but they are very nice even without an occasion.

      Best wishes,

      Ellie

    I loved your article! Like you, I am a huge fan of chocolate-especially dark chocolate. I had no idea there were so many different types of molds to make these chocolate desserts. I have many friends that would love to get these as a gift. I am always on the lookout for different gifts. I especially like the shoes!

      Hello. It took me a lot of time to get the courage to try using a chocolate mould, but it turned out to be very easy.

      I’ve used the shoe chocolate mould to decorate a cake, it was really beautifulto look at it and made the cake even more special.

      I regularly make chocolate spoons, especially during the winter when I serve them together with latte to my husband. He loves it.
