"Hi, Anissa. I did my research on Amazon and based on the mixed reviews, decided to go with Chocovision Revolation X3210X - and love it. I've only made 3 lbs. of chocolate each time and they turned out beautifully. It does all the tempering work…"

Stuck Chocolate In Mold

Yesterday, made my second batch of chocolate molds using three pounds of dark chocolate. All the pieces came out of the molds perfectly, except for one peice. Even after staying in the refrigerator overnight, it remained stuck in the Belgium-made mold. Could someone give me an idea of what might have caused this, and how to prevent it in the future. Thank you so much, Beth.See More
