Candy Clay

Make Edible Clay...

10 ounces of chocolate or one bag of candy melts

1/3 cup light corn syrup

Melt the chocolate or melts in a microwave for 1 minute. Stir. (If not completely melted, return it to the microwave for an additional 30 seconds. If you don't have a microwave, place in the top of a double broiler over hot water and stir until melted).
When it is melted, add the corn syrup and blend.
Pour the mixture onto a waxed paper sheet.
Spread the melted candy with your fingers until it's about 1/2 inch thick.
Cover loosely with waxed paper and let it stiffen for at least a couple hours or overnight. The chocolate will become very pliable. You will have to work it a little to make it more clay like.
It can be used for the kids to play with or to decorate a cake. If you would like to learn how to make roses like the ones on the cake above visit What is Cooking in America

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
