I am usung a 1/2 shell mold . Dollop of jelly then peanut butter ganache. I've been making them for 3 years now & suddenly the top where the jelly is collaspes in . also the face/inside curve of the shell starts to bloom. I do other chocolates in the same mold but no bloom. This bloom is also happening on the sides of a fleur d lis mold I use.

Is your center cold? that might explain the bloom and the collapse? warm it up a bit maybe that'll help?

Is it fat migration from the peanut butter?

Two changes we made with the chocolate is that this time we winnowed the chocolate. This time we didn't use a blow dryer to melt the chocolate. Two improvements with the chocolate is that the melanger didn't get clogged this time and everyone put in work.
