Well, I took the chocolate out of the goop and set it on plastic wrap. After a few minutes, the goop began to turn into a solid - sort of like liquid fat. (eewww). So I put the chocolate back in and worked the goop back into it. It went easier because it was more of a solid. But as I worked it, it began dripping again so I quit, wrapped in in the plastic wrap, and there it sits. I"ll keep you informed when I start to work with it! This will be for the chocolate leaves wedding cake in Sept. I'll need all the practice I can get!
