Chocolate Designs, How to Make
Learn how to make decorative pieces of chocolate.
Heat 2 ounces vanilla- or chocolate-flavored candy coating (almond bark), coarsely chopped, in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. Cool slightly. Pour into small resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Cut a very small opening in a corner of the bag. Squeeze the bag to drizzle designs onto waxed paper. After the coating has hardened, carefully lift the designs from the waxed paper.
Make chocolate squiggles on a plate rim with melted chocolate coating, and add a few fresh raspberries and a mint leaf for a splash of color. For designs made with vanilla coating, you can add a few drops of food color to the coating. Allow your imagination to fly free as you design butterflies, flowers or hearts.
