Using Chocolate Molds
It is time to get rid of the old chocolate bunny, and the use one of those unique chocolate molds.
Making the right choice on the chocolate molds for the party can mean the difference between success and failure when it comes to the guests opinions. Coming across a cool chocolate mold that is both fun and interesting will make your chocolate candy look fantastic. You can either make an assortment or work with a theme, either way, using molds can add fun and excitement to the party table.
Chocolates can come in different shapes and sizes.
Maybe you have a person in your life who is a music lover, been making a platter of molded chocolates shaped like musical instruments and notes will be a fantastic idea, you could also use this theme for a school play or concert too.
If you are the fan of a particular film star, then you can fill a basket with their pictures and maybe heart-shaped chocolates, plus other shapes like roses and diamonds. You will be able to find a diamond and heart mold in any good kitchen supply store, which will enable you to create professional chocolate. You can also find a great assortment of chocolate molds online at http://www.bakedeco.com/chocolate_molds.html.

The holidays are the best times to use a chocolate mold :
It seems that the holidays is one of the only times you are expected to eat lots of sweets, because for most people the rest of the year they are watching their weight. Halloween is one time of the year for sweets, so using a chocolate mold, you can create Halloween theme chocolates for the party. Its probably a good idea not to make the usual ghosts and witches themes, this is because Halloween in the fall, so why not get some molds that are shaped like cats and leaves, and try using different types of chocolate like white, milk and dark.
Another time when you are almost forced to have to eat chocolate is Christmas time. You could purchase some traditional chocolate molds of Santa Claus, reindeer, and snowflakes (these would look gorgeous made from white chocolate), you could begin by making some chocolate candy canes complete with red stripes made from food coloring, also try using ring-shaped molds and diamond shaped molds, you’re only limited by what type of chocolate molds you can obtain and your creativity.
Chocolate molds can challenge your creative ability, however, it’s well worth the effort when guests tell you what a great party it was and that the chocolates will fantastic.
