Checking the Chocolate Mold for the final result

One of our guests checking the Chocolate Mold for the final result. These dome molds might look familiar to some of you – it is actually an egg holder from a fridge! They have a beautiful smooth surface and transfer a high shine to the chocolate, similar to premium quality (and expensive) polycarbonate molds. You can place your ingredients directly into the mold then top with chocolate of your choice. We’ve developed many amazing flavour combinations since discovering this usage for these ‘egg holders’ decades ago. Red liquorice white chocolate and cranberry, butter rum dark chocolate with walnuts, rocky road, ginger and macadamia with bavarian creme white chocolate … the list goes on. We’ll show you some of our favourite ideas at Gone Chocco.
