Hi, my name is David Levine. I own Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at Today, we're going to be making chocolate cups. Chocolate cups are great for all sorts of deserts that you're making whether they be for the holidays or for that special dinner you're trying to put together. Chocolate cups can be filled with mousse, or they can be filled with ice cream or the confection of your choice. The first thing you do for taking a chocolate cup or making a chocolate cup rather is either have a tempering machine or you could use a double boiler. If you have a double boiler, you could have a setup similar to this if you don't have an actual boiler, two bowls on a heating element. What you need to make sure is that you stir the chocolate consistently otherwise the chocolate will burn. After you have tempered chocolate which we have n this machine over here, it all starts with having a mold. Make sure you purchase an FDA approved food mold and when you do that you simply fill up the mold with the chocolate and what you're going to do is if you're doing a small one like this, you fill up one cup at a time, make sure you get the entire cup completely filled. After the cup is filled, you simply turn it over, bang it to get all the bubbles out, wipe off the excess chocolate and then put it into a cold box. If you don't have a cold box, you could use a refrigerator but be sure you don't keep it in for too long because the humidity in the refrigerator will cause the chocolate to bloom. After the chocolate is set, you can see over here, it pops right out. By using properly tempered chocolate, the chocolate will get the pretty color shine as well as be a perfect cup for your next desert. Have a sweet day. Thank you for watching today, and once again my name is David Levine, with Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at and have a sweet day.
