This video features the handwork of pastry chef Amaury Guichon of Jean Philippe Patisserie in Las Vegas

Delicate. Mesmerizing. We keep watching this video over and over.

Is chocolate-making an art form? When you’re on the receiving end of a piece of candy, you’re probably thinking about satisfying your sweet tooth rather than the process that goes into making the chocolate. Enter this viral video featuring the intricate handiwork of chef Amaury Guichon of Jean Philippe Patisserie in Las Vegas, known for crafting chocolates that look like objects (like this chocolate peanut butter calendar) or chocolate favorites that go above and beyond your aesthetic expectations (like these éclairs).

You can peruse his Instagram all day, but this video, produced by Bored Panda, features live-action chocolate molding. The sheer amount of tools used to create rippled dark-and-white-chocolate sticks is mind-boggling. Even a toothpick is used to create the tiny grooves in a spinning chocolate record, while a paintbrush finishes off the product with a coating of shiny dark chocolate “paint.”

You can see the entire video below. Don’t blame us if your stomach starts to growl.


Cream Filled Chocolate Candy Dreamy Creamy Taste Sensations


Like a lot of kids, I would squish the bottoms of every chocolate in the box to find my favorite flavors.

I was always searching for the cream filled chocolates!

I especially love chocolates with strawberry or raspberry filling. Okay, okay, maple is pretty high up on the list too.

Just between you and me, they have some really yummy ones at Fannie May Candies, Dan's Chocolates, and my all-time favorite, zChocolat. Mmmmmmmmm!

You can easily make your own cream filled chocolates, and I'm going to give you some step-by-step instructions below as well as some yummy recipes to help you get started.

There are shortcuts you can take, if you're in a hurry or just a bit unsure about doing it all "from scratch."  I'll get into all that as well.

Before I do that, I wanted to first show you a little selection of delicious cream filled chocolates from a few of my favorite chocolate suppliers.

These morsels really tempt me to spoil myself or someone I love without putting for the effort of making them myself.  You might like to give them a try, too.  In fact, I dare you to resist!  )

I absolutely love the fact that I can get all one flavor if I like. That way I get to choose exactly which chocolates I want!! Finally, someone who KNOWS me. I hate having to squish my chocolates first to see if it's going to be one I'll like.

Of course, like I said earlier, you don't just have to buy delicious cream filled chocolate candy. I know it is a bit pricey sometimes to order your own gourmet chocolates. (Although, I think we each deserve to splurge every now and then, don't you?).

You can make your own homemade candy just the way you like them. It's a lot easier than you are probably imagining.

First you have to make a few decisions about how you want to make and fill your candy. Once you have chosen a fondant recipe for cream filled chocolate candy, or perhaps liquor filled chocolate candy you will have to temper the chocolate if you want the absolute best results.

I'll be honest. I rarely ever temper. I'm not selling them, so I don't go to the trouble for just me and my family and friends. It's time I can spend doing other things (like licking the bowl) since it doesn't really affect the taste.

After you've made those important decisions, you can follow these easy, but fun, steps to creating your own homemade cream filled candy.

If you want to cheat a bit on the filling, I discovered a scrumptious selection of pre-packaged creme filling flavors in decorating bags ready to squeeze into the molds.

And they are only a couple of dollars. Alright, alright, you can get them at Candyland Crafts . Give a girl a chance to finish a sentence! :)

Spoon a small amount (about 1/2 tsp.) of tempered chocolate into the bottom of the mold and spread it up the sides using a pastry brush or small art brush depending on the size of the mold. You can even start with a bit of colored chocolate as shown in the photo, to give it that extra eye appeal. Chill until firm.

Be sure to use enough chocolate on the sides to make a decent shell for your filling. Some recipes recommend that you brush on a second layer after the first layer has set. Just use your judgment.

These and over 2000 other molds can be found at Candyland Crafts, along with multi colored chocolate melts. They have just about everything you can think of. :)

Carefully spoon your chosen flavored filling into each shell until almost full.

Spoon enough tempered chocolate over the top to cover it well. Tap the molds on the counter gently to remove air bubbles. Chill until firm.

Turn the molds over to release the candies. Enjoy!

Note:  Tempering chocolate for cream filled chocolate candy can be a bit fiddly, but the end results are, oh, so good. Your family, friends, and guests will really be impressed. . that is, if you don't eat them all yourself!

Before I do that, I wanted to first show you a little selection of delicious cream filled chocolates from a few of my favorite chocolate suppliers.

These morsels really tempt me to spoil myself or someone I love without putting for the effort of making them myself.  You might like to give them a try, too.  In fact, I dare you to resist!  )

I absolutely love the fact that I can get all one flavor if I like. That way I get to choose exactly which chocolates I want!! Finally, someone who KNOWS me. I hate having to squish my chocolates first to see if it's going to be one I'll like.

Of course, like I said earlier, you don't just have to buy delicious cream filled chocolate candy. I know it is a bit pricey sometimes to order your own gourmet chocolates. (Although, I think we each deserve to splurge every now and then, don't you?).

You can make your own homemade candy just the way you like them. It's a lot easier than you are probably imagining.

First you have to make a few decisions about how you want to make and fill your candy. Once you have chosen a fondant recipe for cream filled chocolate candy, or perhaps liquor filled chocolate candy you will have to temper the chocolate if you want the absolute best results.

I'll be honest. I rarely ever temper. I'm not selling them, so I don't go to the trouble for just me and my family and friends. It's time I can spend doing other things (like licking the bowl) since it doesn't really affect the taste.

After you've made those important decisions, you can follow these easy, but fun, steps to creating your own homemade cream filled candy.

If you want to cheat a bit on the filling, I discovered a scrumptious selection of pre-packaged creme filling flavors in decorating bags ready to squeeze into the molds.

And they are only a couple of dollars. Alright, alright, you can get them at Candyland Crafts . Give a girl a chance to finish a sentence! :)

Spoon a small amount (about 1/2 tsp.) of tempered chocolate into the bottom of the mold and spread it up the sides using a pastry brush or small art brush depending on the size of the mold. You can even start with a bit of colored chocolate as shown in the photo, to give it that extra eye appeal. Chill until firm.

Be sure to use enough chocolate on the sides to make a decent shell for your filling. Some recipes recommend that you brush on a second layer after the first layer has set. Just use your judgment.

These and over 2000 other molds can be found at Candyland Crafts, along with multi colored chocolate melts. They have just about everything you can think of. :)

Carefully spoon your chosen flavored filling into each shell until almost full.

Spoon enough tempered chocolate over the top to cover it well. Tap the molds on the counter gently to remove air bubbles. Chill until firm.

Turn the molds over to release the candies. Enjoy!

Note:  Tempering chocolate for cream filled chocolate candy can be a bit fiddly, but the end results are, oh, so good. Your family, friends, and guests will really be impressed. . that is, if you don't eat them all yourself!

Cream Filled Chocolate Candy Dreamy Creamy Taste Sensations


Like a lot of kids, I would squish the bottoms of every chocolate in the box to find my favorite flavors.

I was always searching for the cream filled chocolates!

I especially love chocolates with strawberry or raspberry filling. Okay, okay, maple is pretty high up on the list too.

Just between you and me, they have some really yummy ones at Fannie May Candies, Dan's Chocolates, and my all-time favorite, zChocolat. Mmmmmmmmm!
