    Would like to know how you accomplished this. You put the chocolate in a square hole and it comes out candy canes and Christmas trees?

    Has anyone tried this using regular chocolate instead of the candy melts?

    Tried this recipe today, the part where you mix the heavy cream with the chocolate,peppermint extract. Did not harden, had to scrape it off and then add the last layer of chocolate.
