Mardi Gras Chocolate

I've been meaning to write about molds. Chocolate Molds are so collectible, and they're really fabulous. At the Hillsborough Antique Show recently I spent a lot of time in a booth devoted to chocolate molds. Quite a few Mardi Gras molds.

I'll recount all my finds later, but since this is Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, I thought I'd mention some special Mardi Gras chocolate molds, Mardi Gras Chocolates and Recipes.
Mardi Gras International Chocolate Molds available from Amazon. Mask Lolly or Miscellaneous Candy Molds.

Chocolate Coins for Mardi Gras. Described as yummy money to add to any and all Mardi Gras Parades or parties. Comes in green, gold and purple. Perfect for tossing from a float. Each chocolate is individually foil-wrapped. Comedy & Tragedy Pops. Make of Milk chocolate are available in sealed clear bags from TCB Chocolat Shoppe.

Xocolaterre, fair trade organic chocolate, has a Mardi Gras Chocolate Set, Mardi Gras Fleur de Lis chocolate squares and Mardi Gras Fleur de Lis chocolate lollipops.
