Just wondering whether someone can tell me what the best chocolate to use for chocolate moulds?
I am making some chocolates for my daughter basketball team to eat.
I only want to do milk chocolate.

If it's just for kids and you don't want to fuss around too much, just use the ordinary supermarket milk chocolate.
If you want something a little better, buy some couverture chocolate but you will have to temper it. It's really not that difficult if you have a thermometer, just a tiny bit of extra work. Digital thermometers are really inexpensive these days, the one I'm currently using for my tuna confit was $14.95 from a kitchenware store.
I grate the block of chocolate and melt about half to 2/3 of it. You need to get it to a certain temperature (google is your friend). Then add the rest of the grated chocolate and stir til it cools to a certain temp. Now it's ready to use.
With your moulds, make sure you 'polish' them with a clean tea towel to help the chocolates come out nice and shiny.

Thanks *LucyE*, that's very helpful.
Yes the chocolates will be for 7 yr old girls.
