How To Make Modeling Chocolate

  • Author: Emily
  • Total Time: 15 minutes


Turn your favorite chocolate into edible play-dough with this simple recipe.


  • 16 ounces your favorite chocolate
  • 1/3 cup – 2/3 cup corn syrup
  • food coloring


  1. Place a clean metal baking sheet in the fridge to chill. Break chocolate into chunks and melt the chocolate in the microwave on half power for 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Allow chocolate to cool to 90-91ºF, stirring often as it cools.
  3. Start by pouring in 1/3 cup corn syrup and stir with a spatula until it comes together.
  4. Fetch the chilled baking sheet and pour out the chocolate on it.
  5. Knead the modeling chocolate by hand, adding small amounts of corn syrup as needed, until it becomes soft, and smooth like play dough. Knead in any food coloring if desired. (You can wear gloves if you want to keep your skin from being dyed.)
  6. Let the modeling chocolate rest for 10 minutes before using it to sculpt figures or cut shapes.
  7. Wrap any extra modeling chocolate tightly in plastic wrap, then seal in a zip top bag.
  8. Store at room temperature for up to two months.
