Molded chocolates

I have a mold with different Christmas shapes, meant for making chocolates. I got it last year with some Betty Crocker meltable coating, but I've never used it and I don't have any instructions.

Do I need to oil it, or do you suppose they'll come out anyway?

It's clear, rigid plastic. I've used something similar for cream cheese mints, and you don't have to grease a mold for those.

If it like the plastic molds I have used in the past, you don't need to grease it, but you do need to make sure the chocolate is very firm before removing from the mold--it helps to put it in the refrigerator.

I also use candy molds for butter to put on the holiday table. Everyone loves the butter that way, but the only problem is the first time I did that (Easter, with little bunnies and flowers), DS thought they were cookies and popped a whole one right into his mouth.

No grease needed but I think I read that putting them in the freezer is better for about 10 - 15 min and the plastic should look a little frosted on the bottom when they are ready. You can tap them out upside down. Good luck, sounds yummy.
