AHi guys. I am making some eyeballs (hollow chocolate filled with jelly) using a silicone cake pop mould. I haven't done anything like this before and wondered what's best to use? No experience of candy melts either. I intend to coat the mould with the choc/ melts then fill with jelly and stick together. Will white chocolate be as strong as the candy melts? I have read they don't have as good a flavour as chocolate? I'm in the uk so if anyone could advise a chocolate that would work? Thankyou

If it were me, I would try it with white candy coating/almond bark. It's easier for me to melt and sets up a lot quicker.

I would just buy hollow truffle shells.  Then just fill with your jelly.

AElise at cupcake addiction on you tube did those and she used candy melts. You can type in cupcake addiction/ candy eyeballs. And see how she does it. Hope that helps.

ACandy melts don't taste as nice as chocolate but they are far less hassle!
