Chocolate Rose Recipe:
10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate (coarsely chopped chunks of chocolate or chocolate chips)
1/3 cup light corn syrup
In a shallow bowl, melt the chocolate in microwave for 2 minutes; stir. Be careful so that the temperature does not exceed 100 degrees F. If chocolate is not completely melted, return to microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir until smooth.
Add corn syrup to the chocolate and mix well (scrape all the corn syrup into the chocolate with a rubber spatula). Using a rubber spatula, stir and fold mixture, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl well, until no shiny syrup is visible and the mixture forms a thick ball.

Pour mixture onto a waxed paper sheet and spread with the spatula until it’s about 1/2-inch thick; let it sit and stiffen, uncovered, for approximately 2 hours. When cool the chocolate will be the consistency of clay and you can form it in what shape you want.

Use at once or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
