Modeling Chocolate

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Kimke

This has a consistency very similar to a tootsie roll, only softer. You can roll it flat (using rolling pin or pasta machine, the latter being easier), and tie it into bows, form it into flowers, and shape it into leaves or doo-dads. Handle it as much as you wish--it's very sturdy! From Mollie Katzen. I haven't tried this but it sounds so fun! For the kids --or for you!! Cook time includes cool time.

Thanks for posting this fun recipe. I found it worked best passed through the pasta machine to make ribbons or bows and using small metal cutters. I tried to make flowers but the warmth of my hands made quickly go sticky and there for difficult to work with. Once made and ready to wrap, it is best to right away flatten it before it firms up again.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water.
  2. (Or use a double boiler.) Stir in the corn syrup, and the chocolate will stiffen immediately.
  3. Stir until completely combined.
  4. Wrap in plastic, and cool to room temperature.
  5. When it's time to work with it, just knead it like dough.
  6. It will soften to just the right texture from contact with the warmth of your hands.
  7. Roll with a rolling pin, or pass it through a pasta machine, beginning with a wide aperture,then gradually decreasing the size of the opening until it reaches your preferred thinness.
  8. Shape it any way you want!
