No, unmolding chocolate is all about good tempering. put your mold in the freezer for a couple of minutes before unmolding.

Polishing the mould inside also helps.

In the future, do not wash your chocolate molds with soap. Just a good hot water rinse.

Definitely pop the mold into the freezer for a few minutes to help with unmolding. Don't leave it in too long, tho, or the chocolate may shatter.

Polishing the mold, as cazsam suggested, may help. Buff with a dry cotton cloth.
