TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
- Use a chocolate melter if you have one.
- If you don't have one you can melt chocolate in microwave safe container.
Since microwaves vary, you will have to adjust the time to your microwave. Start with 30 seconds, stir well with wooden spoon, add 15 seconds as needed.
Heat until just melted. Chocolate should be warm not hot. Chocolate scorches very easily and will taste burnt if heated too long.
- While chocolate is melting pour sprinkles into mold. Fill generously.
- Gently spoon some chocolate into each cavity. Tap side of mold gently to even out.
Let set and harden. For quicker results and a harder coat, place in refrigerator for 30 min.
Fill your spoon with just enough chocolate to fill. It's easier to add more than to scrape excess with a butter knife. However if you do have excess, when you pop out the chocolate you can gently break it off with your fingers to make the shape stand out more.
We found our molds at Michael's craft stores. We get several of the same pattern because they are great for craft projects too.
We also tried the larger sprinkles but they didn't stand out as much. For some reason they got "lost" in the chocolate. White chocolate is definitely going to
show your sprinkles more.
