Filled chocolate shapes - handbags and shoes

My birthday party at the end of April had a shoe theme, and I asked the guests to come in their favourite, most fabulous shoes (though in the end not many complied!) and I made a shoe-themed cake. I also wanted to make use of a Wilton candy melts mould I had only used once before and thought it would easily double as a chocolate mould. The shapes include a boot, some lips, a lipstick, a handbag, a pair of sunglasses and other girly accessories.

This was pretty quick to make: I simply melted some chocolate, poured it into the mould and left to set, which didn't take very long at all.

Then I had a better idea. I melted some more chocolate, poured a thin layer into each mould and spread it around with a brush and put it in the fridge to set. Then I added a spoonful of Betty Crocker's chocolate fudge frosting - I could have made something myself but time was quite limited - and poured more melted chocolate over the top. Once that was set, I had some cute chocolate shapes with a soft chocolate filling!
