First…Which mold should you buy?
Our candy molds are made from a variety of materials. They serve different purposes. Read more to find out about their many uses.
Clear Plastic : The majority of our molds are made from FDA approved clear plastic. They can be used for a variety of food uses, particularly, chocolate. The can not be heated to high temperatures, so they should never be used in the oven or with hard candy. They will melt. Clear plastic molds can also be used for a variety of crafts, including soap making, bath bombs, concrete, plaster. So versatile! Just don’t mix your chocolate and concrete.
White Plastic : These molds are similar to the clear plastic molds, but they can reach temperatures above 350* F. Therefore, they can be used in the oven or with hard candy. Additional crafting uses include wax from candles or crayons.
Silicone : These molds are very versatile and extremely easy to use. They can be used for candy making and baking with ease. They are flexible and durable. Certain applications may have more issues with release (chocolate if it is not tempered, wax if it is not cool), but the flexible qualities are beneficial for other uses (bath bombs work great with silicone molds).
Polycarbonate : These molds are made from durable polycarbonate. The rigidity of these molds brings out the finest detail and design to your chocolates or hard candy. Clear plastic allows you to see when the chocolate has set and pulled away from the mold. These molds are used by professionals for professional results. Using polycarbonate molds is a great way to improve your chocolate and candy making.
Aluminum : These molds serve one purpose – hard candy suckers! They are durable and produce great results! They are a worthy investment is hard candy is a craft you enjoy.
Second… What do you fill your molds with?
If you are comfortable with tempering chocolate, then a couverture chocolate will have the best tasting results.
If that last sentence felt like a foreign language, then you should stick with compound chocolate.

How to Prep & Use a Candy Mold
What You’ll Need:
- Candy mold
- Candy melts
- Rubber spatula
- Quart-sized resealable plastic bag
- Parchment paper
- Clean out the details of the candy mold using warm water only, no soap. Dry each cavity in the mold with a paper towel or microfiber cloth to ensure no water spots remain.
- Microwave candy melts in a glass or ceramic bowl in 20-second intervals until melted. Stir candy melts in between intervals.
- Use a spatula to fill one corner of the bag with the melted candy melts. Snip a small corner off the tip of the plastic bag and squeeze the candy towards this corner. Twist the top of the bag closed.
- Pipe the candy melts into the candy mold, taking care to fill in all the edges and crevices. Tap the mold gently on the counter to release any air bubbles.
- Place the filled mold into the fridge for 20-30 minutes or until the bottom of the mold appears cloudy – this means the candy has set.
- Remove the candies from the mold by turning the mold over onto a flat surface covered in parchment paper. Gently tap the mold and the candies will fall out.
- Paint a candy masterpiece: Use plastic bristled paintbrushes to paint different colored candy melts into the details of your mold.
- Freeze ‘em out: If you have trouble getting the candies to release from the molds, place the mold in the freezer for five minutes or less.

I still couldn't figure out what to do. I was not particularly touched by the first days after waking up. It was a little hot, sometimes I guessed there had just been a lustful pink tubercle, there was a small hole in the girl's urethra, from which she managed to release, one.
