Candy Clay Recipe

Here is the candy clay recipe I use to make the card. It is very easy to make !

Candy Clay Recipe


14 oz pkg of Candy Melts.
1/3 cup of Light Corn Syrup (Karo)

Following the directions on the package melt the candy melts. Add the 1/3 cup of corn syrup .It will become very stiff at first. Do not over mix! Turn out mixture onto waxed paper and let set at room temperature to dry. Wrap and store at room temperature until needed. I wrap it in plastic wrap then put it in a zip lock bag. it's better to let it rest over night. It will become hard  knead a small amount at a time until workable. If candy clay gets too soft, set aside at room temperature or refrigerate briefly. When rolling out candy clay, sprinkle work surface with cornstarch or cocoa powder (for cocoa clay) to prevent sticking; roll to approximately 1/8 inch. thick (the thickness of a nickel). White candy clay can be tinted using Candy Color or Icing Color. Knead in color until well blended. Candy Color is oil based. Do not let ANY water get near the chocolate. Candy Clay will last for several weeks at room temperature in an airtight container.
