Rated 4 out of 5 by Deelu from Love the shape and depth of mold but initially had trouble getting them out. Broke about six but remelted the chocolate so none was wasted. Finally found the trick to getting them out clean.... I didn't cure them in the freezer as recommended because it made them too brittle to remove. I put them in the refrigerator and after they set for about ten/fifteen minutes, I flipped them over and allowed the bottom to pull away then, gently pushed around mold to release so they could fully air dry. Also, in order to get a sturdier shell, I filled to just above a 1/3 and trimmed away excess overflow chocolate prior to releasing from mold. If you do this and be patient when releasing them from mold, you should be successful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jocelyn from so cute There is a little finesse needed when using these molds. It is best if you put them in the refrigerator to harden and turn them upside down. I also sprayed the one that nests with a little cooking spray when I started using them and wiped it off before putting in the bottom mold. You have to be patient. Take the bottom mold off first slowly upside down and then put the shell back in the refrigerator for a few minutes and then you should be able to slowly release the mold from the top layer. I only broke about two out of two dozen, but they are easy to fix by either re-melting the candies or using some of the melted candy to 'glue' the piece back together.

Rated 1 out of 5 by neelie518 from This is the first wilton mold i do not like. I am not new to molding chocolate. I have purchased many molds [most of them from Wilton :) ] But I just cant get the hang of this one. This is such a nice design but it just keeps cracking. I don't understand why it is a two piece mold. It should be a one piece mold like the bottom of "box mold chocolates" or like the Easter Bunny Basket mold (awesome mold luv it ) I wish wilton would redesign this mold into a one piece mold. It would be much easier to work with. Also, they should have put a fill line on it. Which would help us determine the right amount of chocolate. I'd like to know who was on hand when this mold was being tested, cause they didn't think it through. Hoping for a new re-design of this mold. Still luv Wilton :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by CSod from Great idea but the mold itself is made of such flimsy material that the edges cracked the first time I used it. I returned it and got a new one.. same thing happened. I was not rough with it at all. I expected something a little more sturdy. Agree with other posters that it is a trick to get the molds out without cracking the product. If you need 3, plan on enough candy melts for 5. When you do get a mold that isn't broken however, the finished product is quite nice and has a good 'aah' factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nghtygal from I used this mold at Easter this year. I made "poached eggs" for pudding. I made white candy shells and filled it with white instant pudding. I then used half an apricot as the yolk. They looked awesome and the kids loved them. I found so long as you put the hells in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up before removing from the mold, they popped out easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 4mom from I had been looking for this mold for a long time and finally found one. I am having trouble getting the chocolate out of the mold without breaking. for every one I make I break one. what am i doing wrong?. I have molded chocolate for over 20 years and never had this much trouble. also the edge of the mold cracked after just three tries at molding. hockeymom

Rated 5 out of 5 by BKCGrandma from This looks like such an awesome mold. I can see the many, many possibilities. They will make such a wonderful dessert presentation for weddings, showers, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. These would make really cute mini sundaes! Vanilla ice cream, whip cream and a cherry on top! Maybe a few sprinkles too! I'm keeping this mold in mind for my next Tea!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Janabanana0603 from I was so excited to make these, not happy with the outcome at all. I've worked with chocolate for years and this mold is the 1st one I've ever had a major issue with. Out of 3 attempts using 4 sets of molds I came out with around 1 dozen usable shells out of 36. Not a good rate of success. They seem to stick and are way too thin around the rim.
