These work ok, but there are a couple issues:
- A large batch requires a lot of muffin tins
- Cleaning muffin tins is annoying
- It can be hard to get them out of the tins
I've switched to a different system where I freeze a flat tray in a thin enough layer that I can break it easily:
It takes a bit of practice getting the layer thickness right: generally the higher the water content the thinner it needs to be if you don't want an awkward block.
I put a layer in a freezer bag:
Before putting in additional layers I put down a scrap of parchment paper or wax paper:
It's easier and faster than the puck method, though with higher risk of accidentally ending up with a block and needing to defrost some.
