Ok, so I know I will probably have to redo my figure, but I was hoping someone might say-No! It will be fine in the morning! lol. I am just practicing, as I want to be able to work with modeling chocolate more.
Anyways I used the recipe that required 1/3 c. of corn syrup and 10 0z. of chocolate. and yes I used white chocolate chips. (I found out too late that it was not the best thing to use.) Well I did as the directions said and put it in the fridge to set up, but as I was making my figure, it got way too soft. I kept going in hopes that it would harden after I was done making it.
It's sitting on my counter now and it's almost like it is oozing out the corn syrup. I keep blotting it with a paper towel and it just oozes more. It's also not hardening up at all. Did I use too much corn syrup? Will it harden eventually? Or do I just need to make a new one? Thanks for any advice! : )

The first time I made it I messed it up, the second time I followed this....
It came out ALOT better, I still had to pop it in the fridge every once in awhile because it was getting soft from my hands. Hope this helps!
