Chocolate Pots of Gold

Chocolate Pot of Gold 

I have several candy molds that I really do not use very often.  When I saw the chocolate bowl mold, it gave me an idea.  

The mold could make 6 bowls of 3 different sizes 

The instructions said to fill each bowl about 1/3 full using a bag of melted chocolate. I normally use a sandwich baggie with the corner snipped off, but this time I used a Wilton pastry bag. I find it is much sturdier than the regular plastic bags.  

One the chocolate is added, I put the smaller mold on top, and slowly pushed it into the chocolate. 

Once the entire mold is filled, I put it in the refrigerator to chill. The instructions (which I somehow have misplaced) then said to put it in the freezer for a couple of minutes once the chocolate has a frosty look.  

The mold is ready. Time to remove the chocolate. 

The chocolate was stuck on the dome part of the mold.  I was able to remove the small bowls without a problem but...  

this is what happened to the largest size bowls. Oh well it still tasted good. 

I was hoping the bowls would look more pot like, but they still did the job.  I filled them with yellow Reeses Pieces. 

While they might look more like bird's nests than actual pots of gold, they are quite the yummy treat.  It seems a few of the pots of gold have already disappeared..  Hmmmmm.. guess we have a few leprechauns in this house.  

I will be linking up my Chocolate Pots of Gold to this awesome linky parties HERE.
