You can use either chocolate candy melts or white chocolate (vanilla) for this recipe, both are very good. I’ve used this to make figurines, flowers, and more recently a fan! I also have a video on youtube showing how I make it:
- 16 oz. Candy Melts (also called ‘Flavored Candy Wafers’)
- 1/3 c. light corn syrup
- Line a small pan with wax paper and set aside. Melt candy either using a double boiler (see video) or on low power in the microwave. Once melted and smooth remove from heat and stir in corn syrup. It will look like it’s seizing, this is how it’s supposed to look. Pour into prepared pan and allow to cool to room temperature. Wrap in plastic or place in a sealable plastic bag and allow to ‘rest’ overnight.
- To use, break off small pieces at a time and knead until softened. You can use icing colors at this point, just knead them into the softened clay. Store in an airtight container, this will keep fresh for up to 3 weeks. For examples of how this looks, please see my pictures, all my figurines are made using this.
