Chocolate dessert shells by Wilton

I bought this Wilton candy mold from Joann Fabrics for $2.99 to try making chocolate shells for dessert. It is simple to do once you read the instructions clearly. This candy mold comes in 2 parts. The base is where you pour melted chocolate in each cavity 1/3 full and tap it till all air pockets come up to surface. Then, you press on the top mold on to the base part, therefore, forcing the melted chocolate to rise up to take shape of the mold. Once the melted chocolate is filled to the rim of each mold and the 6 snap ons (on the candy molds – top and base) are in place. Flip the candy mold over so you can see the base of the shells. Quickly put it the freezer. Give it a good 15 mins at least, depends on the weather at that time too. Make sure you look for the frosted appearance on each shell, that means the chocolate shells have separated from the mold. Then it is safe to pop them out carefully, and if it breaks, re-do by melting the broken pieces again.

I managed to make 12 of these for my office’s pot luck party thrown by an appreciative male co-worker, Tom B., every year. This year, he is making us ladies, chicken fajitas. The rest of us will bring side dishes, desserts, appetizers and etc. I am planning to fill these babies with lemon mousse or chocolate mousse topped with fresh blackberries or raspberries and a piece of chocolate.

Assembly begins tomorrow night, you come back now.
