Reseal tightly in a plastic bag and replace the lid of the pail. Store unused product in a cool, dry place (not refrigerator).
Placing your finished creation in a refrigerator or using food grade cool spray will accelerate the set time. Finished pieces should not be exposed to temperatures over 75°F (24°C). Finished pieces can also be placed in the freezer - put the piece in a box, move to the refrigerator then to the freezer. When removing the piece from the freezer, slowly bring the piece to room temperature. A quick change in temperature will cause condensation to build on the piece and will compromise the finish of the piece. Both modeling chocolate and covering chocolate will always remain pliable for reworking if desired.
You can place unopened pails of ChocoPan products in the freezer to extend shelf life.

ChocoPan products are made with real chocolate which has an oil base. This oil base allows for a longer working time, without drying or cracking. Pieces made with ChocoPan will get firm and hold their shape but will not dry out and can easily be reworked. ChocoPan products will adhere to themselves without water or additional adhesives.
Turn the pail upside down on your table and press on the bottom of the pail. Modeling chocolate and covering chocolate will be firm when first opened. Use a flat-top spatula to cut pieces out. If the chocolate is too firm to knead, microwave in 5 second intervals. Avoid overworking or excessive heat. Knead pieces until they become smooth.
Work in a cool, dry environment and keep hands cool to avoid overheating the product. To avoid over softening the product while you work: wear disposable gloves, keep hands cool with a cool rag or a bucket of cold water, or put the piece in the refrigerator periodically. You can use a light application of cornstarch on the work surface to eliminate any sticking.
ChocoPan colors can be mixed together, just like fondant. If you prefer to color modeling chocolate, add gel, paste, powder pigment or oil-based food color when kneading. To color covering chocolate, add food color gel or color paste when kneading. Add the colorant to a cupped bit of modeling chocolate. Knead the chocolate until it becomes the color you desire. TIP: Wear disposable gloves to avoid staining your hands.
Both covering chocolate and modeling chocolate can be painted with gel food color or edible confectionery paint. Petal dust can be cut with lemon extract to simulate a drier texture.
It is possible to mix modeling chocolate with both fondant or gum paste. Mixing with gum paste will allow the structure to dry harder but will eliminate the ability to go back to the project and rework. Mixing modeling chocolate with fondant will give you a pliable mixture with a longer working time.
There is a coating of oil on top of the product upon opening
If the oils have separated due to high temperatures during shipping, allow the product to return to room temperature and knead thoroughly. Any oils that have separated will easily work back into the product.
The product is crumbly
Some crumbling will be normal since these are chocolate based products. Simply gather pieces together and knead in.
The product is melting as I work
If the product is melting, place it in a refrigerator until it becomes firm again. It is best to have cool hands when sculpting/decorating in order to avoid the oils separating and the product becoming sticky. Keep a cold rag nearby to keep hands cool while working.
