Modelling Choc in Clay Extruder?

post #1 of 8

Can I use modeling chocolate in a clay extruder? I searched but only found reference to gumpaste and fondant being used in it.

Why not just try a little and see if it works? I know that you have to add shortening to fondant/gumpaste when using it in the extruder. I'm not sure but you may want to add a little shortening to it before trying.

Let us know your results if you try it. thumbs_up.gif

Sorry that I couldn't help.

I tried it - I got it so it was super soft and put a little shortening on the outside and it kinda works but in some spots looks dry....hopefully that makes sense.
Thanks!

I do all the time, you have to knead it first to soften it, then extrude as usual.

I did have it soft but it still came out looking dry in spots - do you soften it to the point of it being squishy - like way to soft to model with? I didn't do that so I will try again.

I wish I can see a picture of the C. clay so I can see what you're talking about, it's hard to know what the problem is without seeing, but I knead it till is gets very soft, but not to soft that the oils starts seeping out. Generally candy or chocolate clay contains lots of oil in it so you will notice the more you handle it with hot hands more oils starts to squeeze out of it, so it's hard for me to imagine dry spots. Can you take a picture?
