I need to make little squares to go on top of cupcakes. I want to make them out of chocolate but I dont have a mold like this. Can i pour it into a baking pan or something rectangular to get the same shape & cut it? or will it stick??? Please help!! thanks icon_smile.gif

What about spraying a little Pam in a plastic ice cube tray. Pour in warm chocolate. Freeze and pop out. That could probably work.

I have made molds out of cardboard and lined it with wax paper. I did a sesame street sign and a big cross like this.

You can form them in a metal square cutter or you can remove the metal strip from a box of waxed paper/foil/plastic wrap and shape it into a square. Sorry to say, some manufacturers are switching to a plastic cutting strip, but perhaps you have one in your cabinet still.

Firstly, you would not need to spray an ice cube tray with pam, not for chocolate.

If you can spread the chocolate thin, you can do your idea. I would recommend cutting it or scoring it before it is completly hardened.

They have a great silicone "pan" that I use. It is about a 1 1/2 inch square. I got it at Micheal's for next to nothing. It works perfect for this. I also spread some chocolate out on a very flat pan, let it firm up but still soft set (matte finish - still soft), score with a knife, and then refridgerate only until firm. I also use small cutters of variety of shapes
