Melt candy coating in a bowl with a spout or squared edges (for ease of pouring). Pour melted candy into the squeeze bottle. You may wish to cut the end of the tip slightly for ease in filling molds. Squeeze the coating into the mold cavities. Tap the mold on the counter to release air bubbles.
CLEANING THE SQUEEZE BOTTLE
When finished with the squeeze bottle for the day, take off the cap and wash. Pour the remaining candy coating from the squeeze bottle onto parchment paper or silicone mat. When set up, break into pieces and store in an airtight container for later use. Lay squeeze bottle on its side in the freezer for a few minutes to set up. When set up, squeeze the bottle and dump out all the excess candy (also may be placed in airtight container for later use).
Turn an electric skillet on the lowest setting and line with 5 or 6 dry dish towels. Place squeeze bottles, candy writers, squeeze-it painters and bowls in lined electric skillet to keep the candy coating melted while not using. A heating pad on its lowest setting also works well. Wrap squeeze bottles, candy writers and squeeze-it painters in the heating pad.
