These super cute chocolate buttons are quick to make as party favours. These use very little chocolate, so are quite economical too.
Moulding the candy melts or coloured chocolate is easy. Simply melt over a double boiler. Tap to remove air bubbles. Then chill for 1 min in freezer or 2 min in fridge then tap out. As they fall on the bench they sound like real buttons wobbling down.
The mould has very thin cavities, so rather than filling each cavity, I simply poured some chocolate over the mould and spread it with a spatula.
They really look like real buttons - and I can't help but smile when I see them.
