Plastic Chocolate

This chocolate dough can be rolled out like a fondant, or molded to form roses, leaves or whatever. It's very simple to make, and quite impressive. This can also be made with white chocolate (food color as desired)

  • Servings



  • 1

    pound semisweet chocolate, chopped

  • ¾

    cup light corn syrup (use about ½ cup with white chocolate)


Melt chocolate in a large metal bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in the corn syrup. The mixture will become sticky, but keep stirring until very well blended. Spoon onto a piece of plastic wrap, and wrap tightly. Let stand at room temperature until firm before using. Overnight is best. If too hard; microwave for 30 seconds. Add color if desired, when ready to use. Use unsweetened cocoa powder on work surfaces to prevent sticking. This can be rolled out between a silicone mat and a piece of parchment paper -NO STICKING! Can also dust hands with vanilla protein powder or use a little vegetable oil on your hands. If it starts to get a bit sticky from working with it,wrap it in plastic and pop it in the frig for a few minutes.
