Hey friends! In this post I’m going to show you how to make custom chocolate molds so that you can make chocolates or candy in any shape that you want. I have been so excited to share this project with you!
For these chocolate molds I used Easy Mold Silicone Molding Putty . You guys, this putty is absolutely amazing! This is a product from ETI Technologies. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to use, and the options are truly endless! You can make molds of any shape and use the molds to cast shaped chocolates, ice cubes, resin, plaster, and so on.

Alright, so follow along below to see how I made my molds. It won’t take long before you see how easy this is and before you know it you’ll be creating molds of your own!
Making the molds:
The Easy Mold Silicone Molding Putty comes in two containers, one holds Part A which is white, and the other holds Part B which is purple. Take an equal amount of the two parts, whether you measure it by weight or by volume, just make sure it’s equal. Here I used a teaspoon to scoop from each. The consistency is exactly like the putty that kids play with, so it’s easy to measure out.
Once you combine these two parts together, you only have three minutes of working time. You need to be sure to have the item you are making a mold of ready to go before you mix Part A and B of the putty. I am making some sea shell molds here, so I had them all cleaned, set out and ready to go. I went ahead and pressed the two parts together and kneaded them until they were completely mixed, with no white or dark purple streaks left. This only took me about 30 seconds to a minute. I then rolled the putty into a ball so it was a solid shape that I could press the shells into.
Next, I flattened the ball out slightly, then pressed the shells down into the putty. I went just far enough that I’d be able to cast a great mold of one side of the shell. I also pressed the putty slightly up around the sides of the shells and shaped it so it would look smooth and clean.
The next step is to wait for at least 25 minutes (I just waited for half an hour) and when you come back your mold is totally ready to go! Just take out your item, in my case the shells, and you’ll see that it made a perfectly awesome mold.
Using the molds:
Alright, so the big test! I decided to make some chocolates in my mold. First, I rinsed and dried them, then prepared my Wilton Light Cocoa & White Candy Melts and poured it inside. I placed them into the fridge until the chocolate had set, and when I brought them out, this is what I had:
As you can see they were the perfect addition to cupcakes to go along with a beach-themed party. The great thing is that now I have seashell-shaped molds that I can use at any time for any event!
One note: I was thinking that these would make spectacular little soaps. If you do this you want to be sure that if you are going to use the molds for food that you mark them accordingly and never use them for any non-food materials. You can make two sets: one set for food and one for NON-food. It’s just important to remember to mark them and once they have been used for NON-food materials they cannot go back to be used for food products.
Alright, so there you have it. I told you it was simple! You can easily do it, and I encourage you to go out and get Easy Mold Silicone Molding Putty (or click this link to order, haha) and try to make some yourself!
