These are so fun to make!  I used them to garnish my Peanut Butter Banana Icebox Cake, and it looked gorgeous!  (Seriously, go check it out)!

Kind of like a snow flake, no two curls are the same but all of them are beautiful!  These take literally minutes to make a huge batch, they’re so easy!  You can use them to garnish cakes, cupcakes or whipped cream on a special drink!  They take a simple dessert from ordinary to extraordinary!

It make take a couple of tries for you to get them curling exactly how you like…  but the great thing is if you’re not happy the first time, just simply remelt the chocolate and try again!

Prep Time 4 minutes
Cook Time 1 minute
Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients  

  • 2 ounces semi sweet chocolate

Instructions 

  • Melt chocolate & butter in the microwave on 30% power until smooth.
  • Pour onto a baking pan and using an offset spatula, spread chocolate as thin as possible.
  • Place in the freezer for 3-4 minutes or until firm. Use a spatula or scraper to scrape the chocolate off the pan and make curls. If the chocolate begins to soften too much, pop it back into the freezer for a couple of minutes.
