• Chocolate Leaves! Posted on April 29, 2013

    Chocolate Leaves! Today is Greenery Day, a time to commune with nature and to be thankful and appreciative of it's abundance. Celebrate with these beautiful (and surprisingly easy!) chocolate leaves. They make great accents on desserts and cakes! 1. Choose your leaves. Nicely shaped leaves with lots of veining will look best! Clean and dry thoroughly. 1. Using a soft, clean paintbrush, spread a layer of melted tempered chocolate on the underside of a clean, fresh leaf. The layer should be thick enough to allow it to come away from the leaf without cracking, when dry. Using the underside of the leaf will produce clearer veins on your chocolate leaf. 2. Leave to set for about 30 to 40 minutes, then gently peel away the real leaf from the chocolate (peeling from stem up seems to work best!).
