For the modeling chocolate you need:

  • Sugar beet syrup, glucose syrup or even honey
  • Chocolate couverture on request
  • two medium sized pots
  • Rührlöffel

And so it goes on to the modeling chocolate:

Put the pot with the pieces of couverture in a water bath.

This is how the chocolate melts slowly through the water vapor. In the same way, place the syrup in a second bowl and heat it in a water bath to make it slightly smoother. When the chocolate has completely melted, gently add the syrup. Mix it together well. This changes the consistency and the chocolate mass is a little firmer. Slowly, this becomes a kind of chocolate dough and dissolves slowly from the edge of the bowl. So you realize that you should stop mixing. Then put the whole thing in a freezer bag. Then squeeze the bag smoothly. It is best to let the mass cool at room temperature for about 10 hours. Alternatively, you can place the chocolate mass in the fridge to reduce the waiting time.
