Here is a fun rainy day treat or special event gift you can create quite easily and quickly. My son and I made these recently as Michaels Crafts Store was having a sale on Wilton's Candy Melts so this was actually quite affordable. We had some of the plastic molds at home to make these in a snap however if you don't you can purchase at Michaels (or another Craft store that sells Cake/Candy making items). They were selling the day we were there for about $2 per mold sheet. Each sheet can make approx. 6-12 chocolates depending on the shape/sizes. This is really fun for specific themed parties as you can get all kinds of shapes. We used a variety as you can see in the picture from different themed molds just for fun.

*****Follow instructions on the bag for either melting the chocolate in the microwave or on the stove. (I prefer the microwave) and carefully spoon the melted chocolate a little a time into each molded shape to make flush/ even with the top. (Don't over or under fill if possible) You will need to work as quickly as you can for your melted chocolate will start to harden. If it does though, you can just re-melt in the microwave. I also like to gently tap down the trays to make sure all the molded areas with chocolate get filled properly and eliminates the chances of any bubbles. The instructions on the bag don't specifically say to refrigerate or freeze to harden them quicker but I do. Remove after about 15 minutes in the freezer or 30 minutes in the refrigerator. You should be able to turn the mold over a plate and gently tap and it should fall out. You do not need to store them in the refrigerator. We filled approx. 4 mold sheets (or about 40 chocolates). Fun note: If you want to you can try melting some different colored chocolate they have available (in separate bowls) and filling each with a different color variation or swirled mix, have fun with it!
