HOWTO make polyhedral chocolate dice

On OffbeatBride, a great (but complicated) HOWTO for making your own polyhedral chocolate dice molds from your D&D dice, and then cast delicious chocolates from it:

Before we begin, some disclaimers. First and foremost: This is about as complicated and expensive (net cost: $100 + shipping) a mold as you're likely to get, for anything reasonably sized. (Well, unless you want molded daleks complete with little plunger-arms or something else that is fundamentally not a convex shape.) That's because it has a lot of little, tiny, fiddly pieces, and it's a two-piece mold meant to create solid 3D shapes with no flat back. And the little fiddly pieces are of variable depth so you need way more silicone than you would if, say, you were just molding your favorite buttons. Chances are, your mold doesn't need to be this insane. But that's fine! You can still use this tutorial, just skip the pieces that are clearly irrelevant.

How to make your own Dungeons & Dragons chocolate dice mold (via Neatorama)


  1. That is officially the worst colour choice I’ve seen for text on a website. If you have to highlight the text just to read it, you’re doing something wrong.

    1. Looks fine to me. Dark text on a white background. I think maybe a part of the page didn’t load for you (namely the white background)

      1. Weird. OK, it did load for me when I checked again, the first time it looked like someone had tried an effect that completely failed to work.

  2. So, that’s a nice way of making two molds for opposite halves of dice, but how do you stick them together? It’s not like the molds have sprues for filling.

    1. I would guess you make two chocolate halves of a dice, and then stick them together… I would guess with a bit of melted chocolate as “glue”. Hmm… you could probably do both halves, but leave them in the mold, add a very thin layer of melted chocolate in one mold, and then press the molds together.

      1. Reading the comments on the original article, it sounds like the author filled the two half-molds separately, then quickly laid the half-mold which was filled first on top of the other half.  I gather the chocolate is viscous enough to stay in place at this stage.  She mentions that one half has to still be warm enough for the two half to adhere though.
