Homemade Valentines Day Chocolates Recipe

How do I prevent chocolate from sticking to silicone molds?

If you’re using silicone molds to craft your chocolates, it can be frustrating when pieces of chocolate stick and ruin the finished product. Luckily, some methods can help reduce problems with chocolate sticking.

Spraying your molds with a food-grade cooking spray release is one option, but if you don’t have access to such products, you can take alternative steps.

You may find that lightly coating the inside of each mold with coconut oil helps give a better release.

You can also test how one works in the mold before adding all the chocolate. That way, you can pivot as needed if the one chocolate sticks.

How do I store candy melt chocolates?

The fun part about making these desserts is that the storage is simple. They will stay fresh if you keep them in an airtight container or a sealable bag.

You cant store them in the fridge or not. They will be fine at room temperature but make sure it’s not warm, or they will melt or change shape.

You can also put them in the freezer in a freezer-safe container.
