They are basically the same. You can also buy it ready-made

Whatever you do, don't be foolish like me and buy the candy clay on clearance because it's cheap and convenient. I almost busted my wrist trying to knead it. lol

Let me know how the recipe turns out as far as how it dries. I've had some issues when I've made it but I think it was possibly because of the humidity in the house at the time.

They are basically the same, but to get technical "modeling chocolate" would be made with real chocolate, containing cocoa butter, and "candy clay" would be made with candy melts, which do not have any cocoa butter in them. I've seen recipes using either corn syrup or glucose. I don't really have any experience with either, so I can't help with any info on how they differ in working with them.

Where did you get the recipe for the modeling chocolate? I would love to try to make it and use it. Where can you buy it ready made? icon_razz.gif
