1. Choosing the Right Mold

Some chocolates may need setting at room temperature, while others benefit from a brief stay in the fridge. Follow your recipe’s guidelines for the best results.
2. Properly Tempering Your Chocolate
Getting Temper chocolate is an art form, and it is necessary for achieving a glossy finish and sutiable texture. Proper tempering ensures that your chocolate contracts slightly as it cools, making it easier to release from the mold. Follow the tempering process meticulously, which typically involves melting, cooling, and reheating the chocolate to specific temperatures.
3. Filling the Mould
When your chocolate is perfectly tempered, it’s time to fill the mold. Pour the tempered chocolate into each cavity, ensuring that it completely fills every nook and cranny of the mould. After filling, gently tap the mold on the counter to remove any trapped air bubbles. This step is very important to avoid unsightly imperfections on the surface of your chocolates.
