Edible Modeling clay

Connie Deitz


I needed something besides fondant to create some things for my baked goods. This recipe works well for molding the stuff I need and it tastes pretty good too.

How to Make Edible Modeling clay


  1. melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl 1 minute. Stir. If not fully melted return to microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each addition. Do not get the chocolate too hot. Can use a double boiler to melt the chocolate. Just have the water only to a simmer.
  2. When the chocolate is fully melted. add the Karo syrup and stir to blend. The chocolate will come together and appear dry and crumbly.
  3. Pour the mixture on a piece of wax paper and flatten into a disk. Cover with another piece of wax paper. Then leave it alone for at least 8 hours.
  4. After setting for 8 hours remove the wax paper and knead the clay candy. It may get too soft to handle if you touch it too much, if so set in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Add powdered sugar or cornstarch if it gets too soft and sticky. Add only a little at a time. Have fun
