Getting Creative With Chocolate Candy Molds

Feb 21, 19

Today, home bakers and professional bakers have access to the same types of tools and equipment. Through companies like N.Y. Cake, bakers of all levels and with all different specializations can find the perfect tools and equipment to use for all of their baking and candy making needs.

For those who enjoy making their own chocolates, finding chocolate candy molds that are easy to use and provide a great selection of shapes and options is always a plus. While most hobby stores carry a limited selection of basic molds for bonbons and some seasonal candies, the true baker supply stores offer an incredible number of options to browse and select.

Most of the professional quality chocolate candy molds are either silicone or polycarbonate. Both are very easy to work with and can be used time after time with very limited upkeep or special care. Simply wash with warm soapy water and dry, or with silicone molds, wash them in the dishwasher for easy cleanup.

Seasonal Molds

There are some great seasonal molds for chocolates out there, with the traditional heart shapes for Valentine’s Day as well as the Easter and Christmas iconic shapes.

However, it is also possible to use a standard bonbon type of mold and simply add decorative elements to the chocolates to create a seasonal look.

3D Molds

Rather than a flat, two-dimensional shape, the use of polycarbonate and silicone chocolate candy molds allows for three-dimensional shapes. These look just like commercially available chocolates, but they can be customized and personalized to suit any type of event.

3D molds are also a great way to create unique types of chocolates. There are some fun high heel and men’s shoe molds, as well as chocolate race cars, gem shapes and even delightful chocolate spoons that are perfect to add to a dessert coffee.
