Thanks to Julie G. for this find!
Remember this “Rare Bit O’Swag” I posted awhile back â€” the Goggo/IWL/Heinkelesque cookie mold? Well I finally got around to making cookies with it due in large part to the help of my friend Jessica S.
We had loads of fun making them and we were amazed a wooden mold could make such great looking cookies. I want to play around using other recipes to see what kind of results I get.
Want to take a stab at making Speculaas with you own molds? Check out this very well done video and the recipe. Keep in mind that Jessica and I used double the spices for a delicious result. We even added fresh ground pepper.
This mold appeared on eBay and eventually went for something well over $100. It was a vintage German chocolate mold make by Anton Reiche. Every so often you can find a scooter related mold like this on eBay. Just be prepared to shell out a lot of dough. They tend to go for at least $200. In fact I used to collect these when they were under $50. That was just six or seven years ago! Many are reproductions from vintage European molds and some are original molds. They work great to make chocolates of course but I’ve also used them to make soap molds, Plaster of Paris figurines, Christmas ornaments, etc. You can even make candles if you’re so inclined. Here’s a tip: office binder clips are essential to hold the two halves together as they very seldom come with their original clips. And of course they are also just wonderful to display in the kitchen.
