Uhmmm....what's the trick to getting these things out of the mold? Everyone says they just tap them upside down on the counter and they fall right out? Mine aren't doing that at all. They're totally set too! HELP!!!

i don't know, hun. mine did that too, but it was on the bottom (once they were out), so i don't think anyone noticed. it doesn't change the taste.

When I make my cco's, I put them in the fridge for 15 mins and then lay out a dishtowel on my dining table and pound them out on there so I won't damage the chocolate. I have to do it quite hard but after 1 or 2 tries , they loosen and then fall right out.

Might be a stupid question...

Is the chocolate soft or do you break a tooth getting through the chocolate to the cookie? I'm really liking the look of these and think they would make cute Valentine's Day specials.

What type of chocolate does everyone use? I have been experimenting with different types of chocolate. I used the wilton light chocolate candy melts and found these to set the best, but I was not too fond of the taste of the chocolate. I also tried the baker's chocolate disks that you melt and those were absolutely delicious once put with the cookie. The chocolate did not get as hard as with the wilton chocolate, but it tasted a million times better!!! I was wondering if there are some other ones to try.

I've added crisco to the chocolate before and that seems to help with the hardness icon_smile.gif

I've always used Ghirardelli's dipping chocolate, but I'm on my last bar, so I'll have to try something else. I'm thinking of using half Wilton's CandyMelts, half chocolate chips. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that the chocolate won't bloom. Even if they do, I have two teenage boys who will polish them off in no time, regardless of what they look like!
