I don't have a sewing machine or appropriate fabric, but I still wanted to quilt something. For some reason, my thoughts drifted to the kitchen. Those who know me know that I don't consider fondant edible. Chocolate clay, on the other hand, works quite well where others might use fondant, without the drawback of tasting like overly sweet play doh.
I decided to try quilting chocolate.
I used colored white chocolate for the top of the quilt, but you could just as easily use milk or dark, or a combination of them for different patterns.
Step 1: Make the chocolate clay
Melt 3/4 C white chocolate chips with 2 1/2 T light corn syrup. Stir until smooth, then let it cool. Knead until smooth and pliable, adding a tiny bit of powdered sugar or cornstarch if it's too greasy. Don't overuse the cornstarch or it'll taste powdery.
If you want to color some of the chocolate clay, separate those portions.
