Chocolate Paste (Chocolate Leather)

1 lb. Lindt's, Valrhona, or any good quality chocolate. Baker's brand is also great.
cup Glucose
2 tsps. Ice Cold Water

1. Gently melt chocolate. This can be done in the micro, but check and stir it every often- 10-15 seconds

2. Stir in glucose and mix together lightly

3. Add water.

4. Stir together well. Again, DO NOT overmix.

5. Spread mixture out thinly onto a plastic wrap.

Cover and allow to ripen overnight. The following day, knead well, cover and allow to set overnight again. This mixture can also be tinted with paste or powdered food coloring.
