I was thinking the same thing. I haven't made it with real chocolate, just Wilton discs. It tasted great, though, and was very easy to make and to work with:
Melt 14 oz. Wilton discs in the microwave. Stir in 1/3 cup clear corn syrup. When it forms a dough, knead it until smooth and wrap in plastic wrap twice and leave it at room temperature overnight. It will get very hard.
When you're ready to use it, knead a small amount at a time to soften it up a little. Roll it out and cut it just as you would fondant. HTH!
