DS reacts to artificial vanilla (aka vanillin). His school is having a party on Friday and I just found out that I need to send in a gelt substitute. I found an easy recipe to melt down the chocolate, but I just don't have a mold. Is there something I could put inside muffin tins to make a mold? Any ideas?? Thanks!!

Yes!! Thanks, I think that might do it!! I just bought the foil at the craft store, so this brown sugar trick just might work. Thanks!!

Did it work? I admire more complicated projects like this from afar, being a fairly lazy crafter and non-baker! ;-)

More or less! My chocolate did not drip very well but I was able to smooth out the back okay.
