Making Homemade Candy: How to Melt Chocolate Wafers into Molds

Learn how to melt chocolate wafers into candy molds.

     Using chocolate candy molds to mold chocolate into shapes is easy and fun. Many different molds can be found on-line and in different craft and bakery supply stores. You will need chocolate wafers to melt.

     Once you have your mold make sure it is clean and dry. Chocolate is very sensitive to any type of water or moisture so make sure your mold, pans, and all equipment you will be using are completely dry.

     Please read our information page on All About Melting Chocolate Wafers to familiarize yourself. If you are using a microwave to melt your chocolate wafers use a 2 or 4 cup glass measuring cup. Fill it with the chocolate wafers and microwave for 10-12 second intervals while stirring in between each set until melted. Be sure not to burn or overheat it as it will get grainy and taste terrible. If it is burnt you must discard it and start again.

     Place the filled candy molds in the freezer for 5-10 minutes or until the chocolate is hard. How long it is in the freezer is up to how big or small the candy pieces are. Bigger candy pieces will take longer to harden. Keep an eye on it. If you leave it in the freezer too long, it will freeze, and when you take it might break into several pieces. If you do not leave it in there long enough when you take it out the candy will stick to the mold in some places and fall apart. You will know it is done when the back of the candy mold shows the chocolate nice and smooth and shinny.


     Once the chocolate has hardened and looks like it is ready, tip the mold over onto a piece of wax paper or foil. The candy should come right out. You may have to tap it one time. If the candy is still stuck then it was not ready and put it back in the freezer. Always let your chocolate pieces get back to room temperature before putting in bags or packages.

     For more detailed molds and candy making you can paint the colored candy on the molds first with a regular paint brush. Make sure you put the mold in the freezer between each color. When making this kind of candy always paint the melted color wafers for the details on the mold first. The last step is pouring the melted chocolate or white chocolate to fill the candy mold.

Here are some of our suggestions on packaging your handmade candies.

Enjoy making your homemade chocolates,
