Curiosity killed the cat today:)))
I have finally decided to give this modeling chocolate a try. I have heard and seen Buddy Valastro, i.e. the cake boss, talking about and using this modeling chocolate soo much that I had to try it.
Sufficient to say that I fell in LOOOOVE with it and that I'll use it for ever.
300 gr dark chocolate
90 gr corn syrup (I replaced it with honey)
Melt your chocolate in the microwave. Careful not to burn it:)
Add 90 gr of corn syrup / honey
Stir the ingredients together until the chocolate separates from the recipient and looks like in the photo. It doesn't take long. 2 min tops!
Cover it in plastic film and refrigerate it.
After a few hours take it out. It will be hard as a rock at first, but start kneading it and you'll see that it will start to soften.
It is the most pliable thing I have seen. I absolutely love it! I am definitely trying the white chocolate version as well.
Mix it with your sugar paste and you'll get the elasticity you've ever wanted in your homemade sugar paste.
