Made 2 dozen of each. They're fairly big, about 3 bites each.

Fillings:

dark = coffee ganache + dulce de leche
milk = salted caramel ganache + soft caramel
white = peanut butter ganache + raspberry jam

Permabanned for posting porno links (not kidding).

Not sure if said porno links were rabbit-related. Again, not kidding.

Yeah, I'm not sure who they're talking about but I'm not him! Strictly coincidence. I just grabbed these molds because they fit the Easter theme by being bunnies but were a bit irreverent at the same time. I like things like that. I had some 3d printed Mr. Hankey cutters custom made so I could make Christmas Poo gingerbread men... so the bunnies seemed like a natural extension.

Q: What sort of molds did you use?

(And where does one source such things?)

It's a Chocolate World mold. Mold #CW1474. I'd link straight to it but the Chocolate World site is down on Sundays. I guess that's when they do maintenance or whatever. I couldn't find it anywhere in Canada, not sure if any U.S. sources carry it. I can order direct from Chocolate World in Belgium and even with currency exchange and shipping they're no more expensive than most Canadian sources for professional chocolate molds.

I use Chocolat-Chocolat for most of my mold purchasing, they're in Canada but ship to the U.S. and with the current exchange rate actually end up cheaper than most U.S. sources. Of course, that doesn't help me since I'm in Canada. In the U.S. Tomric is a great source. Chocoley and Chef Rubber have a pretty good selection as well. Chef Rubber is also a really good source for colored cocoa butter for decorating molds but their shipping rates to Canada are way out of balance with reality so I don't shop with them. The main thing is to go for the professional polycarbonate molds. The flimsy plastic molds, although cheaper, are difficult to work with unless you just want to make solid pieces with no fillings and often have a lip around the edge for strength that makes it really difficult to scrape the excess chocolate away cleanly.

And I thought my ice cubes were the hit of the party:

Ha, just post some chocolate and the women come right over! :lol:
That's the plan. I've been doing a lot of work honing my chocolate skills lately, hoping to make it a supplemental income eventually (just on a small scale local level). So hopefully the women (and men too) will come right over... with their cash. :D

Did these on Saturday...



and these a few days ago...
