Making Halloween Candy?

Halloween is here again! Ever ask yourself this question: How could I make my own molded candy?
I'm sure most of us have given it a thought at one time or another. Here is how:
  1. Purchase plastic candy molds in shapes that you like. For Halloween I would suggest ghost or pumpkin shapes. Michael's or AC Moore would be great places to purchase molds.
  2. Buy bags of chocolate flavored candy disks to make your molded chocolates. Again, Michael's or AC Moore will have these. 
One important tip when working with melted disks is to be sure that NO water gets into the mix. It will make it clump up and the entire batch will be ruined.

Quick mocha latte candy mold recipe
  • 1 bag of milk chocolate flavored disks
  • 3-5 teaspoons instant coffee granules
Melt chocolate disks in a double broiler.
Add coffee granules to melted disks.
Spoon mixture into molds.
Refrigerate 15 minutes or until hardened.
Remove from molds.

Make your own Reese's filling:
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar 
Add melted chocolate to mold, just enough to coat.
Add a dab of filling on top of coated mold.
Top with melted chocolate and refrigerate.
BAM! Homemade Reese's!
