Chocolate Mold tests

So just trying and testing on chocolate molds that I purchased. Melted and cured, then placed into the glowforge. I think a better quality of chocolate is a must. Did 3 test with engraving and score and the last just engraving. Idea’s for accents for baby shower or honestly anything. The possibility are endless with this machine.

Chocolate can be such a pain sometimes, if you didn’t do it before after you melt the chocolate to the right temp you can then add in some unmelted chocolate and stir it in to act as a seed to help it crystallize properly. Pretty cool project, Does the laser give the chocolate a strange taste?

I just purchase Chocolate chips from hobby lobby and bought a mold. Let the chocolate cur 24 hours and did the 3 test. Starting from 17 up to 40 in power to get the final result. The 3rd photo with out the score. Without any melting. No bad taste. I’d say next time buy a better quality of chocolate

Wondering why not try and make the molds yourself from acrylic or similar or silicon rubber on a cut and polished plastic or even wood positive?
