How to make it

  • The chocolate modeling clay is made by combining melted chocolate and light corn syrup.
  • Note: the chocolate can be substituted with almond bark, or colored candy disks to create different colored flowers.
  • *Chocolate clay:
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave for 1 minute.
  • Stir. If chocolate is not completely melted, return to the microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir until smooth.
  • If you don’t have a microwave, place the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot water and stir until melted.
  • When the chocolate is melted, add the corn syrup and blend.
  • Pour the mixture onto a waxed paper sheet.
  • Spread the chocolate 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.
  • *Making a Chocolate Rose:
  • Roll 10 marble-sized balls from the chocolate clay.
  • Place the balls on a waxed paper sheet, about 1 inch apart.
  • Place another waxed paper sheet on top.
  • Use your thumbs to press each marble into a flat disk (about the size of a quarter).
  • *To form the rose:
  • Remove 1 disk and curl it into a teepee shape, narrow at the top and wider at the bottom.
  • Wrap the next disk around the opening of the teepee and the third disk at the back of the teepee.
  • This is the rose bud.
  • Continue adding disks which will look like petals.
  • Continue to layer them to create a rose in bloom.
  • *Roses can be used as edible decorations for a cake or to create a basketful of blooms. They will harden after a few days and can be saved by storing in a cool, dry place.

    I've always had a hard time making a pretty rose, but after looking at how yours are put together I think I will try them again. What a great idea making them out of chocolate. You have my 5, thanks for the great post.
