I made candy clay for the second time. The first time I used 14-16 oz of candy melts and 1/3 cup corn syrup. I didn't have that recipe in front of me but one that said to use 1/2 cup of corn syrup.
When I saw that all of the corn syrup wouldn't stir into the chips I realized I had used too much so I added more chocolate.
(I reheated the first mixture to add in the other chips.)
Now I really have alot of extra liquid! What can I do? Should I start over from scratch or can this batch be saved? Or can I do something else with it?
Thanks for helping a dimwit.
If you over stir it, it will separate the oils from the solids. I would let it set up, then very gently (in a bowl over hot, not boiling water) re melt it.
don't stir much. pour it out and let it set up, then knead it into a smooth mass.
You can also using patience and muscle, knead what you already have. You have to remix the oils into the mass.
Oh boy did I ever overstir it! Thank you for the tips. I figured if nothing else I could mix it with fondant and use it like that.
I'm in Salem too!
I let it separate, then when it's hardened and I'm ready to use it, I work the oil back into it. I use a pound of the candy melts, I know Wilton for some reason sells theirs 14oz a bag.
Here's a video of me making it, and using it. I also have several pics posted with things I've made using this recipe:
Thank you. Your video was very helpful! I think my candy clay may still work.
Thank you both again for the help.
