Chocolate Update

...OK, so I have limits. The handmade vegan chocolates were something of a failure. Not disastrously - the chocolate was delicious, but this was only the result of buying a good brand to begin with, not because I did anything right!

They set up great and all looked well but they refused to come out of the molds. Just point blank refused. Wouldn't even try! I tried coaxing them, pressuring, enticing, threatening, entreating, but these little treats just would not cooperate and remained clam-like in their little plastic trays.

I ended up taking a sharp knife to them, thereby ruining the molds (all of $1.79 each from AC Moore) but feeling better for maniacally wielding a sharp implement and venting truculant-chocolate-induced rage!

Any suggestions? I clearly have a lot to learn about this business ... perhaps I need to purchase more vegan choccies for 'research purposes'??????

Stay Vegan, Friends! :)
