Hi every one
hope all is well
Im looking for a fast and easy recipe for molding chocolate.
have searchrd the web and had no luck.
Hope someone can help
Any time I have molded chocolates, I have used candy melts, Mercken's, Nestle's or even Wilton. Not sure of any actual "recipes" so here's a bump for you.
Ill give that a try.
i use and love toba garrett's recipe for modelling chocolate. it could not be easier. i use plain old garden variety nestle chocolate chips and it always turns out wonderful.
1 pound chocolate
5 fluid ounces (7.5 oz or 210 grams by weight) of light corn syrup. Please note that it isl less for white or milk, see the bottom of post (this is because these have more fat than regular chocolate)
1. Chop chocolate finely (I don't chop, i just use the chips as is) and place in a bowl over simmering water. Stir to melt chocolate evenly. When three-quarters melted, remove from heat. Continue stirring until all the pieces are melted.
2. Use a rubber spatula to stir in the corn syrup. Continue to stir until the chocolate starts to leave the sides of the bowl (about 60 seconds for dark chocolate, 20 to 30 seconds for white or milk chocolate).
3. Scrape chocolate mixture onto plastic wrap and spread out to about 1/2 inch thick. Place another piece of plastic wrap directly on top. Refrigerate or let rest in a cool place for 24 hours.
4. Once aged, cut into smaller pieces. Bring to room temp. Knead thoroughly with the heels of your hands until the chocolate has elasticity and a shiny coat. Do not over-knead or chocolate will get too soft and may get grainy. Wrap in plastic wrap until ready to use.
Keeps for several weeks without refrigeration provided it is placed in a cool, dry area.
For white or milk chocolate, use 1 oz less than you would for dark chocolate. Thus, use 4 fl. oz corn syrup or 6 oz/168 grams by weight for 1 lb. white or milk chocolate.
oops, i may have made a mistake! my mind read modeling chocolate....you said molding chocolate. sorry!
I would think they are the same thing. Thanks for posting the recipe, drakegore.
