Modeling Chocolate Recipe

Oh Chocolate, how do I love thee? I love being able to play in the kitchen and come up with fun designs for cakes and cupcakes. It relaxes me, maybe it is the playing, maybe it is all the chocolate I eat while doing it… The world may never know.

We don’t have a cake decorating, or craft store near by, so I was always stuck getting the tastless, yucky fondant if I wanted to do something fun. I love this recipe, because I am able to mold and create things, that only fondant would let me do before (and I hate the taste of fondant).  So now, it is fun and tasty to come up with fun ideas to put on top of cakes, cookies, and cupcakes. And, it is super easy to make, which is always a big plus in my book!

Homemade Modeling Chocolate Recipe

The MOST important part of this recipe is not to over mix. Use a spoon or spatula and do it by hand, over mixing will breakdown the fats and it will not hold together.


  • 9oz of melting chocolates
  • 4 tablespoons of corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of water


  1.  Melt your chocolate, either over a double boiler, or in the microwave in 30 second bursts.
  2. Combine your water and corn syrup in a microwave safe bowl, and heat it for 20 seconds.
  3. Combine your corn syrup mixture with your chocolate.
  4. Continue to fold the mixture together until there are no puddles of corn syrup left. Once this happens STOP mixing.
