Hi all! I need to make modelling chocolate and the recipe calls for chocolate and corn syrup. Was wondering if I could use Wilton candy melts instead of real chocolate???? Does anyone know? Thanks in advance! icon_wink.gif

Yes..I have used wilton candy melts before for modelling chocolate...Just add a tablespoon of clear corn syrupand it will start to get hard..Just knead until the consistency of clay!!

Thank you SO much!!! When I first pour it on the wax paper and let it sit, do I leave it uncovered?
