Have you ever tried your hand at molding your own chocolate? It doesn’t have to be a special occasion and there’s no expensive molds required when you have a well stocked pantry. Want to see which three items you can use in your kitchen for perfectly molded custom sweets?

1. Cornstarch
2. Powdered Sugar
3. Brown Sugar

For years I’ve used the first two items on this list almost exclusively when molding my own chocolates or candy. The TV show Unwrapped taught me that (well that and my Grandma), but recently we checked in with Hannah at Rise and Shine who is molding out of brown sugar as well.

All you’ll need is a container to hold the cornstarch, powdered sugar or brown sugar and then you pack it in tightly. Next press any household object into the smooth surface and remove gently. You’ll be left with a perfect little impression to fill with melted chocolate.

Great for making cake adornments, party goods or favors or just something special for your family the next time you all make it to dinner at the same time. Want to read more about how to get the job done?
