Making chocolate roses

The way I make the roses is not by molding them but thought I would
pass it along to anyone who really wants to take the time. You do
not use molds at all, but you hand mold them out of chocolate
"clay", I would only reccomend these if someone really wants
realistic looking roses and has lots of time. Definately not to be
made for huge parties or weddings!

1 lb candy chocolate
1/3 cup light corn syrup

Melt candy over double boiler, add corn syrup and blend. Remove
from heat and put on waxed paper and let set at room temp to dry.
Wrap well and let set overnight.

Clay will be hard at first but knead a small portion at a time
until it gets soft (if it becomes too soft refridgerate for a bit).
If you roll out the clay for other uses use cornstarch to prevent

Roses: start with a base made into the shape of a cone 1-1/2 inches
high, next roll a small ball about the 3/8 inches round, flatten
with thumb to represent a rose petal about 1/4 inch thick. (make
as many petals this way as you wish on the rose) take the first
petal and wrap around the point of the cone to make a bud, next
press three more petals near base of the cone but not directly on
the base, add five more petals made a bit larger than the first
three, press in place lower than the first three they should slightly
overlap each other. Pinch the petals in the center to look like a
real petal. spread petals out to make open rose.

You can add more or less petals depending on the look of the rose
roses will stay several weeks at room temp in a airtight tin.

I tried making these. The recipe is very very simple and easy, however this can be quite time consuming. I made them while watching a movie, so I was kept busy... They don't taste like gourmet chocolate once you add the corn syrup, but they're still tasty. Also, when I was molding them, they did sometimes get too soft, and I would be hard to set them down without getting flat spots on the bottom side of the rose. However, that might not matter if you plan on laying it on that side on a cake or something like that. Very very beautiful & impressive
