What flavor of chocolate should I use for modeling chocolate that an 8yr old will like to eat. She doesn't like white chocolate.

If you need colors just use the white melts, they are vanilla flavored. Once you have made the modeling chocolate you can use regular icing colors to get the shade you want.

If there is a flavor she likes you could add flavoring to the modeling chocolate too I think.

Thank you for your answer, but it doesn't help.

Maybe I should have been more specific, she hates the white melts. I've been doing this with the kid for 4 years. She likes making lollypops for the unsuspecting. She won't eat them; if her life depended on it.

I'm trying to figure out a way to make realistic keys for a computer keyboard.

I'm going to have to make my own modeling chocolate.

All I'm asking is for do I use bittersweet or unsweetened.

I apologize for not being more specific in my original post.

Don't use unsweetened, use either milk or dark chocolate. I'm pretty sure that the corn syrup added to make the modeling chocolate won't make the unsweetened good enough to eat.

The only problem I see is if you want the keys to be white, there are black keyboards but I don't know how you would make the letters stand out on that.

The keyboard will be pink or purple.

Can I airbrush the keys the right color? She will want milk chocolate.
