Just wanted to say thanks again for this idea! My mold and funnel came in the mail last night and I found this process to be very easy! I just melted my coconut oil under hot running water from the faucet.
I wanted to add to this tip. I bought one of these funnels and it worked very well. No mess at all, and it was easy to control the oil.
I also bought a PB cup mold, but it's only 2.4 teaspoons per cup (or equivalent coconut oil dosage for 24 pounds). I'll feed two or three molded cups per day. Here's the mold I bought: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003UDEKDM/ref=oh_details_o03_s01_i05
