Merkens Black Candy Clay is dry....what can I add?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I made candy clay with Merken's black chocolate with 1/4 c of corn syrup... mixture is OK but does not roll out very nice - is there anything I can do to make it more "rollable"? shorting?

thanks in advance!

Shortening would make it more moist. If you have access to black fondant, you can mix it 50/50 with the modeling chocolate and that will take care of any elasticity issues, as well as help it hold its shape.

Thanks! I'll give that a try!

Does the Merckens black chocolate have a funny taste? The ones I ordered for Halloween tasted funny. I wasn't sure if they were old or if the black just gives them a funky taste. I thought they were awful.
