The two halves don't stick together, you just package them together. To get a whole sphere you need some kind of spherical mold, which is more effort than I care to put in, so I make them this way Smiley

I gave up making mine into balls..so they are packaged together as a ball but they aren't stuck together..I figure people only use  half anyways..why struggle with keeping them whole just to be broken apart Sad

Or you could use small shaped molds and not have to worry about balls at all Wink

Every time I try to pop these out of the molds, they fall apart.  What am I doing wrong?  Sad  would it be ok if i let them sit in the mold for a while?

I guess I was trying to "pop" them out of the silicone molds.  I tried gently tapping, and after a few tries, they came out.  Smiley
