    Awesome, thanks! Do you think they would be hard to get out of a plastic mold? I was going to buy one of those ice-cube trays made for water bottles with the long tube-shaped cubes.

    Put some plastic wrap in the molds first. Then you should be able to use that to unmold the chalk and then peel off the plastic. In theory anyway. I haven't actually tried it.
