2. Refrigerate or place the filled lollipop molds inside the refrigerator for a few minutes until firm (don't leave it too long inside the refrigerator) or you can leave it in a cool dry place to set.

To check if the chocolate is already set, look at the bottom of the mold, if it appear grayish, it means that the chocolate have slightly pulled away from the mold and so the chocolate can now be removed from the mold.


3. Cover a flat surface with parchment paper and carefully but quickly reverse the mold, firmly tapping the mold to release the molded chocolates. The molded chocolates should easily fall out. (Before unmolding, be sure to scrape the excess chocolate on top of the mold so that the molded chocolates will fall out easily, excess chocolates on top of the mold will make the edges of your molded chocolate appear jagged and the molded chocolates will not fall out easily).


4. Use a pair of rubber or plastic gloves in handling your molded candies so as not to leave your finger prints on the finished molded chocolates.

    @ docmo: thank you for voting-up. after supervising your kids in the melting and tempering part, you can have them do the moulding on their own. I'll guarantee you, they'll enjoy it.
