Hot Air Balloon Chocolate Bar Mould
Product number: 32664
Chocolatey treats are hard to beat, and when they come sprinkled with hot air balloons – even better! Turning out four mini chocolate bars, each with the same design of hot air balloons sailing past the sun and through the clouds, this polycarbonate mould is ideal for creating bars to give as gifts or add to gift bags at the end of a themed birthday party.
Producing excellent definition, it’s suitable for dark, milk or white chocolate bars, and once you’ve mastered the art, you can start experimenting with combining different colours of chocolate too, or finishing off the balloons on a white chocolate bar with a brush of brightly coloured lustre dust.
If you want your chocolatey treats to have that professional-looking sheen, you’ll need to temper your chocolate. This stops the cocoa fat from separating, preventing that dull grey finish and meaning the chocolate shrinks slightly when set for an easy release from the mould. If you want to find out a bit more, we wrote a handy guide on tempering chocolate for budding chocolatiers.
