Candy Clay

Can candy clay be made with real chocolate or can it only be made with candy coating?

It can be made with real chocolate, fake chocolate, baking chocolate, chocolate chips, almond bark, candy melts . . .

I prefer almond bark since it melts easier and smoother and is very forgiving. I like candy melts for the colors and chips for the flavors. It's really up to you.

Is it the same recipe or do you need to alter it for the various amounts of fat in the types of chocolates?

I use basically the same recipe; however, my measurements are different from most of the recipes I've seen on here. For a 24 oz package of almond bark, I use 1/2 cup corn syrup. This is quite a bit less corn syrup than most recipes call for, but I like to have my modeling chocolate (candy clay) a little stiffer.
