Silicone Chocolate Molds at Candyland Crafts

Some chocolatiers swear by silicone and would not use any other kind of chocolate mold in making chocolate candies.

If you asked one hundred different chocolate makers if silicone, polycarbonate plastic, metal, or glass made for the best chocolate molds, you’d receive a plethora of conflicting information. At the end of the day, the best chocolate mold is the one that works best for your personal experience and application. Silicone molds are excellent for many reasons.

1) They’re flexible.

Plastic, metal, and glass can produce good quality chocolate, but they are rigid and retain their shape making it more difficult to remove the chocolate without accidentally breaking or chipping it. Silicone chocolate molds are flexible, allowing easier removal of the chocolate with less risk of breaking it.

2) They’re tough.

In fact, silicone is near indestructible. It can withstand extreme temperatures ranging from over 400 degrees Fahrenheit to nearly 100 below. It cannot be broken from accidentally hitting it or dropping it on the ground.

Metal is also fairly tough, but glass and plastic are extremely fragile and would chip, crack, break, or shatter if exposed to the same level of abuse that silicone would readily weather.

3) They’re light.

It’s a tough competition between plastic and silicone for the lightest chocolate mold available, but most silicone molds will get the edge and the title of lightest chocolate mold.

Metal and glass, while still useful, are exponentially more heavy and therefore more cumbersome and taxing to use.

4) They’re versatile.

Because it can withstand such extreme temperature fluctuations, silicone molds are an easy go-to for numerous applications even beyond chocolate making. They can be used for soap making, hard candy making, baking, cooking, and DIY crafts.

Silicone molds can be removed from super high temperatures and placed directly into a freezer with no risk of damage. They are safe for the microwave too.

Time for clean-up? Silicone molds can go right in the dishwasher for a convenient and quick clean.

5) They’re fun.

Sure, there are numerous practical and functional benefits to using a silicone mold for your chocolate making. But where does fun factor in?

Silicone molds come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Purchase a mold that matches your cookware, kitchen decor, or favorite outfits so you can emanate personality while you craft custom confections.

Looking the part plays an integral role in your confidence, and that feeling will only make the chocolate taste even better!
