modeling chocolate recipe - Karo?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm looking for a recipe for modeling chocolate to use to make a figure (to cover RKTetc).... the ones I've seen here state to use Karo Syrup - I'm assuming Karo is a brand? If so I can't find it around here - will any light corn syrup do? and for chocolate can I use the small chocolate wafers (they are usually the size of a quarter)?

I use the generic brand of light corn syrup. Karo is too expensive, and the generic works the same. You can use the chocolate wafers. The recipe is right on the bag. I use semi sweet chocolate chips for mine. 16 oz of chocolate to 3/4 cup of corn syrup. Works great!!

You can make figures and decorations, same as you do with fondant, except modeling chocolate sticks to itself, so you don't need water to stick them together.

This guy works with modeling chocolate a lot.

The shoe and the box here were also made of modeling chocolate. It's just more delicious than gumpaste.

Thank U, Thank U, Thank U icon_biggrin.gif

This may be the best thing I've discovered (after MMF & WASC) actually it may get bumped up (before MMF) I made a batch last night and made a bow today (will place on cake tomorrow) I thought it needed time to set, but hardened up nicely, right away.

Like all things, I'm sure with more practice I'll get better (a little cracking while shaping, but reading up on that) Can't wait to try with white chocolate, and start dying!!

When you buy corn syrup, don't get any that lists water as an ingredient.  Your modeling chocolate will just turn into crumbs.  Check the label.
