Rated 5 out of 5 by javagrl from I make tons of these every year at this time. I first learned how to do this in Girl Guides (won't quote how many years ago this was!) I also add centers to these. I coat the mold with a layer of candy, put it in the refrigerator. I check to ensure the coating is thick enough and there are no holes - if there are, I coat and refrigerate again. Then I add the fillings. I have used the peanut butter filling recipe on this site, I have also made my own coconut filling, dulce de leche, mint, etc... Leave enough room to fill in with more candy - let set in the refrigerator - et - voila!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frack from I just love these molds! I put easy down for difficulty level. However if you want to be really creative and use more than one color, adding nuts, marshmellow, carmel, etc. the difficulty level goes up a little. When filling small molds it is much easier to use a candy making sqeeze bottle. Fill the bottle half full with candy melts and put in microwave with the top off and follow the directions on the bag the bottle came in. I am going to do little wedding bells for a wedding with 250 people this summer. So go buy your wilton supplies and have fun and be creative..

Rated 5 out of 5 by jessikab23 from I have recently started using candy molds and I absolutely love them. Wilton offers so many different ones for so many different occasions. I get so excited about doing the different designs and decorations for my children and their friends. My favorites would have to be the Halloween vampire teeth and the Christmas snowmen and light bulbs. And the colored candy melts make it so much easier and are less time consuming than coloring 5 different bowls of white chips. Hands down my favorite thing to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Asrya from Moulded candy can make a big difference in a cake. Beware of air bubbles. They're notorious for ruining the smooth look. Watch your timing! They don't tell you but if you take the candy out too soon, it'll just break and leak because the inside isn't set fully. Better to leave it in a little longer than take it out too soon. Believe me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pampi from Molding Candy is so easy. I decorated a baby shower cake with the molded candy rocking horses, baby booties, diaper pins, and footprints. The cake was simply beautiful. I was very pleased with the decorations, and the cake looked professional. I also made cream cheese mints using almond flavoring instead of peppermint, and used the roses in bloom mold. The candy was simply delicious and a compliment to the 60th anniversary party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacaroo from I remember the first time ever making candy in a mold and it looked so professional! I do it all the time. Whether it's lollipops for a birthday party, and I've done PLENTY of them. I've done Batman with all the diffierent colors, I've done Happy 80 Birthday where I've painted the words one color and used dark, white and milk for the lollipop. My favorite, and I do it every year is the Cancer Ribbon. We participate in the Relay for Life every year. I make the lollipops by using Purple Candy Melts for the Ribbon, since that is the theme for Relay, and then I use Dark, Milk and White chocolate. Wrap them in the lollipop bags with a purple ribbin and our team sells them at the event. Everything we collect goes to Relay for Life for Cancer Research. I also make chocolate houses for Halloween and Christmas..well...what is a chocoholic to do?? :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by beckperk from Molding candy was the first experience I had with Wilton. My sister-in-law gave me a quick lesson and I was instantly hooked. I have four daughters and my daughters and I made these for years as they were growing up. We eventually advanced to cupcake and cookie decorating. Thanks to the website I have found so much more than decorating cupcakes and cookies. I love the easy instructions and availability of products.
