									Great Sample Mold I found!!
I was checking out Hobby Lobby here locally and found the BEST molds ever to make samples! They are in the candy making section. They
are used to make the hard candy and withstand hot temps. They came in 2 different shapes and were around $3.00 each. You can print a

for molds
So like I showed you in another post before on how to make samples using chocolate molds, you start the same way. Cut a chunk of the wax
and put it into a PYREX 1 cup measuring cup and Microwave about 2-3 minutes. Checking it after 2 minutes. If you haven't read that post go
ahead and do that first. For these molds I was melting a brick and used about 2 1/2 sections per mold. That's about 1 1/2 bars. You'll want to
line a baking sheet with wax paper to catch any spills and fill the molds up all the way to the top.

                                                                                           After about 10 minutes in the freezer they should
pop out really easy and look like this.
Then just break them apart! These are soooooo easy! No more pouring into individual candy molds and spilling and only getting around 16
per mold. I'd be making samples all day! Now it is so fast and the samples are smaller so I get more out of my brick. Before when I used the
chocolate molds I'd get about 115 samples per Brick. Now I get closer to 300 samlpes per Brick!

To clean my molds I found this great stuff called Candle Mold Cleaner-Wax Remover. It's a little pricey, about $8.00 but you don't use very
much and it cleaned my molds really good with no residue left!
                                                                       I then put the samples in a 2 X 3 inch baggie that you find in the bead
area of the craft store and I put a label on it with the scent name and under it in red it says, "wax sample, not for eating"
And on that brother was visiting and I was making some Toasted Caramel Sugar samples so they looked and smelled like
caramels...he sure popped one in his mouth and and spit it out! Why are men so clueless? He said it didn't taste very good...I'll have to trust
him on that one!
