Chocolate Curls, How to Make Easy
How to make decorative chocolate garnishes.
Place a bar or block of chocolate on waxed paper. Make chocolate curls by pulling a vegetable peeler toward you across the flat-test side of the chocolate, pressing firmly in long, thin strokes. Small curls can be made by using the side of the chocolate bar. Transfer each curl carefully with a toothpick to a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet or directly onto frosted cake, pie or other dessert. The curls will be easier to make if the chocolate is slightly warm. Let the chocolate stand in a warm place for about 15 minutes before curling. Semisweet chocolate can be used but the curls will be small. Also, the thicker the bar of chocolate, the larger your curls will be.
