Homemade Chocolate - Ways To Make Your Chocolate Standout




Homemade Chocolate - Ways To Make Your Chocolate Standout

 


One of the most fun things about making your own homemade chocolate is that you can play around with different ingredients and make your own unique chocolate recipes and chocolate treats. 

Putting your individual stamp on the chocolate that you make will also make it more personal when you give the chocolate as gifts to people that you love. And if someday you want to go further and actually sell the homemade chocolate that you make then having your own unique chocolates will make it a lot easier to sell your chocolate. 


But most people that make homemade chocolate use the same basic types of chocolate and the same base chocolate mixes from candy supply stores so how can you make your own unique chocolates without making your chocolate entirely from scratch? 


Here are five easy ways that you can create delicious treats that reflect your own personal  style:

 

1. Mix chocolate bases – 

Just because a lot of people that make homemade chocolate 
use the same bases doesn’t mean that you can’t make your base chocolate unique. 

You can use the same chocolate bases from candy supply stores that other people use but just combine them in a unique way to make your own signature flavor. Mixing dark chocolate and milk chocolate, or semisweet chocolate with white chocolate, or mixing 
other flavors together to create your own unique base can be a great way to make your homemade chocolates stand out from the crowd. 


2. Add things to your base chocolate – 

There are lots of things that you can add to your chocolate base to make your chocolates tastier and more unique. You can use toasted sesame seeds to provide crunch, or you can use peanut butter, seeds, nuts, fruits, and lots of other things to make chocolates that are different and delicious. 



3. Make your own molds – 

Think outside the box when it comes to the molds that you 
use to put your chocolates in. Instead of just using traditional candy molds in traditional 
shapes use cake molds, soap molds, cookie cutters and other tools to make fun and 
unique shapes for your chocolates. If you want to make your own molds you can find 
books and the supplies that you need to make your own plastic molds at most craft 
stores. 



4. Use unique packages – 
How you pack your candy can become a signature style for you that will set your chocolate apart from other chocolates and apart from commercial 
candy too. Instead of using traditional boxes look for fun and unique ways to package your candy like using hand painted box or little cello bags. 



5. Use decorations – 
Using candy coloring and other fun decorations on your chocolates can help you turn even the plainest homemade chocolate into a fun treat. Make sure that you package decorated candy properly to make sure that the decorations don’t fall off in the package.


Homemade Chocolate - Types Of Mold You Can Use While Making Your Own Chocolate

Homemade Chocolate - Types Of Mold You Can Use While Making Your Own Chocolate


 
Using molds is a great way to make your chocolate fun and interesting. You can use basic molds that are just in traditional shapes like squares or bars or you can use fun molds that are in all different shapes and styles. If you want to make lollipops or suckers there are special molds that you can use to make those.


There are lots of companies that make special candy molds that are specifically made to be used with chocolate. These are often found in holiday shapes like Easter bunnies, chicks, and eggs or in Christmas shapes like Santa Claus, stars, and Christmas trees.


There are candy molds out there for every season so you shouldn’t have any trouble
finding a mold that will be perfect for you holiday celebration.

But you’re not limited to just using candy molds for your chocolate. You can use soap
molds, cake molds, or other types of molds too. As long as a mold is made from a
heavy plastic it should work just fine. 


To make your candy slide out of the mold more
easily spray the inside of the mold with a no stick cooking spray. That way you won’t
have a situation where half of your chocolate candy ends up stuck inside the mold. 

If chocolate does get stuck inside a mold turn then mold over so that the open side is facing down and run the mold under the hot water tap until the chocolate loosens and slides out.


To take care of your molds make sure that you wash each one thoroughly after you’re done with it. Molds can be washed with normal soap and water like dishes almost most are not dishwasher safe so don’t put them in the dishwasher unless the mold says that
it’s dishwasher safe.


When you pour the chocolate into the molds it might take several hours or even several days for the chocolate to harden in the mold. Even though you might be tempted to put the chocolate and the mold into the freezer so that it hardens more quickly you shouldn’t do that. 

It will make the chocolate harden too fast and it can damage the mold. You can put the chocolate filled mold in the refrigerator though, and that should help the chocolate solidify in the mold more quickly.
Using molds is a cheap and easy way to make your homemade chocolate more fun.


Getting your candy out of a mold can be tricky but one way that you can make it easier to get the chocolate out of the mold once it’s hard is to drop the mold onto the counter before you set it down to loosen the chocolate inside the mold. Running the mold under a little hot water is also a good way to get chocolate candy out of a mold.


You can find candy and craft molds at any craft store, and sometimes at the grocery store too. Some craft stores carry thin plastic molds that are very cheap but these don’t last very long so they’re not really a bargain. Spend a few dollars more and get molds
made from high density plastic that are very thick. They’re really worth the extra cost.
