Recipe: Chocolate Modeling Clay


6 oz. chocolate chips

5 teaspoons corn syrup

1 gallon size zip-top bag

Rolling pin, cookie cutters, plastic table knife


1. Melt the chocolate chips in the top half of a double boiler. Stir in the corn syrup.

2. Using a wide mouth jar as a stand, place the zip-top bag inside, making sure the top edges of the bag drape over the outside of the jar. Pour the melted chocolate into the bag and seal. Let it cool.

3. Knead until the chocolate is well mixed, smooth, and clings together. You may want to add a few drops of water for a softer consistency.

4. Use nonstick cooking spray to grease the counter, rolling pin, cookie cutters, and your hands. As you begin to work the clay, the warmth from the kneading will make dough smooth and satiny. Cut, shape and sculpt your Valentine creations.

5. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
