Questions about Artisan-scale wrapping machines for chocolates/caramels

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My question is this...  Is there a company that manufactures an automated machine capable of wrapping cube-shaped caramels and chocolates???  And would such a machine also be capable of wrapping large (3-4 oz.) rectangular chocolate bars or would such a product require a flow wrapping machine?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Great question! Sorry I don't know the answer but I agree, would be nice to have small scale automatic wrapping machinery.  I would make a lot more caramel and taffy if I could give the wrapping job to a machine!

You could check with www.packagemachinery,com .  They show machines online, but, you'd have call them for more detailed specs and pricing, but they do carry food-wrapping machinery.

 

For my own caramel-wrapping needs, I lure my teenagers into the shop with the promise of cold, hard cash, in exchange for a couple hours of work.  It's nice on a couple different fronts. I get to spend some quality time with them; their hands are completely gloved and occupied -so no texting, etc.; and when they're done, I can send them off with some cash- so they don't take up any space in my shop. ;+)

      Hi there,
       
      I am looking for a very simple vegan bonbon recipe that is just a dark ganache. I am having trouble balancing a coconut cream that has less fat than UHT cream to have a balanced recipe that can have a 3 month shelf life. My bonbon recipe had mould after one month testing.
      Anyone have any good solutions?

      For my purposes I have mastered the art of packaging chocolate bars, but search as I might I cannot find an eGullet thread or any information on packaging chocolate eggs.  I ask as I have an egg mold in transit.  Assuming I can successfully fabricate an egg, how can I wrap or package it?  All I can think of is cellophane.
       
      I've seen pictures so I know some of you are making eggs.  Do not deny it.  When I was little and still celebrated holidays the neighborhood candy establishment sold eggs in windowed cardboard boxes with cellophane grass*.  That was the early 1950's.  Is this still the state of the art?
       
       
      *cellophane grass tastes terrible.  And the ubiquitous coconut cream filling not much better.

      I am searching for a natural source of food colorings, to tint buttercream, & use in chocolate work. I don't like commercial FC, it is synthetic and toxic to boot. Has anyone found a good source/vendor who has naturally derived colorings
