Molds for Flat Chocolate Pieces

How Chocolate Moulds Work

Chocolate molding is the process of making chocolate pieces by shaping melted chocolate inside a rigid frame, called a mold. A mold is a hollowed plastic part that is filled with the liquid melted chocolate. As the chocolate hardens or sets inside the mold, it adopts the shape of the mold.

Chocolate Mold Terms

  • Mold Cavity

    The space in the plastic mold where the melted chocolate is inserted. The total number of cavities in a mold determines how many finished pieces will be yielded each time the mold is filled.

  • Closed Bottom Mold

    Used for making hollow 3D chocolate pieces. When these molds are put together, they form a completely closed unit, with no openings. This allows you to partially fill half the mold with tempered chocolate, close it shut, then rotate it around to evenly coat the entire inside, creating a chocolate piece that’s hollow in the middle.

  • Open Bottom Mold

    Used for making solid or hollow 3D chocolate pieces. When these molds are put together they still have an opening at one end. This opening allows the mold to be completely filled right up to the top to create a solid chocolate piece. Open bottom molds can also be used to make hollow chocolates as well. Fill the mold with tempered chocolate, shake or vibrate it to remove any air bubbles, then dump out the excess. Repeat this process as necessary to achieve the thickness you’re looking for.

  • Double Mold

    When certain flat bottomed molds are made twice, the pieces can be fit together to form a three-dimensional piece.

Caring for Chocolate Molds

Because molds are made of plastic, upkeep is minimal. At the end of the season, molds need to be washed, well rinsed, dried and stored in a cool, dry location. If maintained, the molds will have a shiny finish and release a nicely glossed piece of chocolate.

  • Wipe with soft cloth in clear, warm water.
  • DO NOT use an abrasive cleanser. If molds become coated with cocoa butter, wash with a mild grease-cutting detergent. Use detergent sparingly and avoid scratching the inside surface of the molds.
  • Rinse in clear, cool water.
  • Dry and store in a cool location.
  • Use molds at room temperature.
