Anyone have a good recipe for making molding chocolate?
I need to mold minature contruction workers.....is this the best for doing so?
fondant is to gummy and gumpaste will harden to quick.
If you're wanting to use chocolate clay, there are lots of recipes out there but I think they are all pretty much the same. If you use candy melts, I believe the packages are 10 oz. I picked up some black Halloween packages the other day and I noticed that they are now 12 oz and I think the price has gone up. I haven't done chocolate clay with real chocolate, but the recipes I have seen have the same proportions.
Anyway, the recipe that I've used is 10 oz of candy melts to 1/3 c corn syrup. Melt the chocolate - I do mine in the microwave. Add corn syrup to the chocolate and mix well (scrape all the corn syrup into the chocolate with a rubber spatula). Pour mixture onto waxed paper; let it sit and stiffen, uncovered, for about 2 hours. Use at once or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
