Ok.  I've found molds.  I know there are differences for hard candy molds versus chocolate and soap molds.

My question is whether I can use molds I've used to make m&p soap to make chocolates with.  Since it's just m&p, and well... it's soap, so it'd clean up all squeaky clean, I can't for the life of me think of a logical reason why not to.  But, then, you never know.  Can someone enlighten me?

Or do I have to have two of every mold, and mark them all appropriately?

Sorry if it's been asked.  I've searched here and google with all kinds of different terms all afternoon, and haven't been able to find a thing!

Go ahead and use them for both - the plastic isn't going to absorb anything.  Smiley Just be sure to keep your temperatures low enough to keep from melting the plastic. Easy enough, since you want to keep the soap under 200 degrees to keep it from going odd and/or burning off your fragrance/essential oils.
