We LOVE modeling chocolate. We do. It works so well, you have the workability to cover up all the lines and wrinkles. You can smooth it out so well. You can make it in 50/50 fondant/modeling chocolate ratios, for a wonderful moxie to use on many different things.
But what about when you seem to have SO MUCH TROUBLE? Like, when you mix it and it is totally crumbly. Or you just overmixed it by two strokes, and now it’s a giant oily mess of which there is no return. That makes me insanely crazy. The kind of crazy, when you are really just >–< this close to throwing a block of said crumbly chocolate-ish sort of mixture, out the window, and spending the rest of the day binge watching Netflix and eating a tub of ice cream. You’ve never done that? Just me? Okay well, I have issues. So let’s learn from my mistakes.
I’m going to give you some of the top modeling chocolate recipes and when all else fails, one that I personally can vouch for if you want to just buy it, no hassle involved.
Shawna McGreevy’s Modeling Chocolate
Okay, foolproof modeling chocolate right here folks. Easy. Quick. Done.
Read her directions. Watch the video if you need to. Then make it.
Biggest downfall in making your own recipe for modeling chocolate, or any recipe really, is failure to follow directions. This one is my personal fave.

Listen. If you tried, and failed, and tried again, there is NO shame in just buying it already made. I mean, why keep throwing away, or saving for a rainy day, (but secretly planning to fix, and then you never do), those failed attempts at modeling chocolate. Do I need to remind you of my Netflix binging? Do I!!?
No, I do not.
Nathalie Sorenson has created Hot Hands Modeling Chocolate for those of us who have hot hands and tend to use modeling chocolate until we melt the poor stuff to death. TO DEATH, I SAY! No worries with this stuff. You’re set. Just order it. And boom. Done. End of story.
