They are great. Found at

Basic Molded Candy

Now you'll find out how easy and fun it is to use a candy mold. We're starting out with the most basic candies?one color, solid body. But basic doesn't mean boring. The details in each candy mold make these easy candies look terrific. So choose your favorite Wilton mold and some great Candy Melts??it's time to start!

1. Melt. Choose one of these four melting methods.

2. Fill. Place melted candy in your mold using a spoon, Melting Bottle or disposable decorating bag. When mold is filled, lightly tap it several times on a counter to eliminate air bubbles in the candy.

3. Chill. Place the filled mold in the refrigerator or freezer until candy has set. When the underside of the candy mold appears to be frosted, you're ready to unmold the candy. If there are any dark areas on the underside of the mold, it means some of the coating is still soft. In this case, chill the mold for a few more minutes, until the entire mold has a frosted appearance.

4. Unmold. Turn over the mold about an inch above a flat surface covered with parchment or waxed paper. Gently flex or tap the mold and out come the candies!
