Step 1

Melt bark in microwave until just melted. Add corn syrup and mix until it comes together. Pour it out on wax paper until it's cool enough to handle.

Step 2

Knead as much oil as possible out of it before I let it rest.

Step 3

Getting the extra oil out makes it a little firmer; also, you don't end up with little hard bits in the middle of it when it's cool.

Modeling chocolate made with almond bark is very forgiving. If needing to color it, use candy colors and add the color to the corn syrup before mixing.
