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

How to Make 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 mins.
  • 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).
  • Use as needed to shape various decorations.
