The The Bakers Dozen: Making chocolate candy

Hi, I am adding chocolate favors to my bridal business and I have some questions regarding the type of chocolate I need to use to make chocolate candy using molds. The molds that I am using 2.5 in oval, 1/4 thick and have cavities ( 2 I think) Which type of couverture, chocolate manufactuer is best to address the molds. Also, when trying to create my own blend - am I using flavoring or different types of chocolates to create a different taste.

Any information, books, etc., would be greatly appreciated.

hey I know Hans!

Serwaa -
Do you intend then to make the chocolates or do you want a company to make them for you?

I would suggest Chocolates ala Carte if you want to buy something already - they can even customize wrap for you.

If you want to make your own just buy a basic how to chocolate book at the book store. Tempering chocolate isn't the easiest thing in the world though. You may want to consider buying a hard chocolate glaze that doesn't require tempering.

Chocolate's differ in taste just like coffee. I use Cocoa Barry right now across the board cause it's cheap and tastes ok --- but I prefer Lindt White Chocolate, Suchard Milk Chocolate and Cluizel Dark Chocolate.

Regards, bkt
