then they put some more ice on top of it.

once it has hardened you can remove it from the ice and presto coral.

Yes I also say the yummyarts video on youtube and they use white chocolate. I did it and it was so much fun to make.

I just made some Isomalt Coral yesterday and it turned out Great!

You can probably use Granulated Suger in lieu of Isomalt, but Isomalt will work better.

When Using Isomalt, Take 3 parts Isomalt to 1 part Water (example: 3 cups Isomalt, 1 cup water) in a pan and boil until it reaches 350 degrees (using a candy thermometer is best) - do not stir the mixture, just let it boil.

Once it reaches 350 degrees, remove the pan from the heat and place the pan into an ice bath immediately stop the cooking process. Let is cool for about 30 sec - 1 min. While the liquid is cooling - add desired amount of Food coloring & stir as needed to ensure consistent color.

Pour the liquid into a large container of Ice. Be sure to pour liquid all over ice or as desired - as it will cool and harden quickly..... making the coral. Add water once all liquid has been poured into the ice to help chill the coral. Let it chill for a few minutes and then remove the water/ice.

Product will be wet/sticky for a few hours (it is sugar). Place on a cookie sheet lined w/ parchment paper until dry.

I hope this helps everyone who would like to experiment with Coral!!

Susan Carberry was the one who made the coral in the yummy arts video.
I could be wrong but I think it was melted white chocolate that she used.
