Help with chocolate

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I need help with making chocolate suckers. Everything is fine except that the chocolate squishes out onto the sucker stick and I can't stand it. How do I stop that from happening?

I attached a picture so that you can see what I'm talking about! Any help would be great appreciated.

Sadly enough, the sticks were in the mold when I poured the chocolate. I just have this problem regardless of whether the sticks are in the cavity or if they aren't, when I pour the chocolate.

The only thing that I can think to do is kind of put a little bit of wet chocolate where the stick to goes to stop it from happening. But then I'm concerned the stick won't work attach properly.

Thanks for your help!

The sucker stick area overflows before I even get near the top of the sucker mold. LOL. Maybe it's just me. It just drives me crazy. So I guess I'll try to block it a little bit with wet chocolate and let it dry and then pour the chocolate in and see how that works.

Thanks again!

I figured out what it is! I always tap the mold to get any air bubbles out and that is causing the chocolate to spill into the sucker area. Because when I just poured the chocolate and didn't tap them, the sucker stick came out pretty. =O)
