Wouldn’t you like to have a chocolate machine like that in your kitchen? I love it! Of course, you don’t need a big tempering machine to make these chocolate. You can just as easily work from a bowl of tempered pure chocolate or a bowl of melted confectionery coating/candy melts.
These types of molds are manufactured by several companies, and I’ve added some links at the end of this post. The molds come in many shapes and sizes and you can buy transfer sheets in so many beautiful designs.
I have used chocolate transfer sheets so many times, but oddly I’ve rarely taken pictures of my creations. I did snap some pictures of a few chocolate boxes that I created about 6 years ago. They were created using transfer sheets in two different ways. The small pieces of candy inside the boxes were made using the technique I showed in the video.
The top of the chocolate box was created by laying a transfer sheet, cocoa butter image side up, on a baking sheet, then pouring melted chocolate over top, spreading it into an even thickness, allowing it to dry slightly, then cutting it into a square. Once the chocolate dried completely I peeled off the acetate and had pretty chocolate box lids. I used printed frosting sheets to create the message on the boxes.
If you give this is a try, and have any questions, just let me know. I’m here to help.
