Bring on the Chocolate
The first dimensional chocolate molds, arrived, in France in the mid-1840’s. Stamped out of copper and silver washed, these molds ranged in size and made from two or more pieces, the molds were usually held together with hand clamps or clips. In the late 1860’s, the silver wash was replaced by “tinning” (molten tin flowed over the mold) because tin was less expensive than silver, and the tinning would last longer than the silver wash.
