My Mom and I found an old chocolate mold at the Renninger's Farmers Market last weekend (at this little shop which I am slowly falling in love with). The mold has 4 egg designs, each with a unique bunny/peep imprinted on the shell. I was worried the mold might leak and be a big mess, but it was sealed perfectly. We ended up with 2 dozen BEAUTIFUL chocolate eggs after an afternoon of candy making.
STEP 1 of our candy making adventure: Use the double boiler to melt "Wilbur Buds" melting chocolate, we picked some up earlier today from our local dry goods/health food store, Echo Hill.
STEP 2: Pour melted chocolate into the hinged metal molds (no butter or PAM or oil required). We put the mold on a bed of ice so that the chocolate would begin to cool immediately, but this isn't necessary for successful eggs. It just helps to make sure the walls are coated a bit more evenly.
