Candy Clay Recipe

1 lb. Merckens Coating Chocolate

1/3 cup light corn syrup

  • Melt Candy Melts following package instructions.
  • Add corn syrup and stir to blend.
  • Turn out mixture onto waxed paper and let set at room temperature to dry.
  • Wrap well and store at room temperature until needed. Candy Clay handles best if hardened overnight.

To Tint: Candy Clay may be tinted using Candy Color. Knead in color until well-blended.

To Use: Candy Clay will be very hard at the start; knead a small portion at a time until workable. If Candy Clay gets too soft, set aside a room temperature or refrigerate briefly. When rolling out Candy Clay, sprinkle work surface with cornstarch to prevent sticking; roll to approximately 1/8 inch thickness.

To Store: Prepared Candy Clay will last for several weeks at room temperature in a well-sealed container.
