Ingredients

  • For modeling chocolate:
  • 280 g - dark chocolate, chopped (10 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup - Corn syrup (you can use light Corn syrup substitute)

How to Make Chocolate Rose

  • First make the modelling chocolate:
  • Melt the chocolate pieces in a double boiler.
  • Away from the heat, add the corn syrup. Mix well, till a solid mass is formed and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Transfer to a plastic wrap, cover and refrigerate, for a couple of hours, till it sets.
  • Take out the chocolate and leave it outside, for about 30 minutes.
  • Knead the chocolate vigorously. Initially it may look grainy, but continue with the kneading (it is the heat from your hand, while kneading, that makes the difference).
  • Continue, till you get a soft and pliable dough (this may take some time).
  • To make chocolate rose:
  • Take a bit of the chocolate dough and roll into a tear shape.
  • To make the petals, take another small bit and flatten it into a circle.
  • Place it, in between plastic wraps and flatten it, either with your hand or using a spoon.
  • If using spoon, gently press the circle, with the back of the spoon in a circular motion and flatten into desired thickness.
  • Take the petal and attach to the base of the tear shaped cone.
  • Shape the edges outwards. Continue making the petals and attach them, overlapping the other petals, till you get the desired shape and size.
  • Cover loosely with a plastic wrap and refrigerate till use.
