  1. I am having a terrible time getting my cups to stay together. They break. The sides are real thin and the bottom is thick. Too thick, really.

    1. Hi Sara. Sounds like you aren’t spreading the chocolate evenly! If you are having trouble doing it, it might be because your chocolate is too hot. Let it cool a bit more until it isn’t dripping. -Kelli
