Chocolate Curls

Source: Martha Stewart Cupcakes


  • 1 block of good-quality chocolate


  1. Use a vegetable peeler to slice strips from a slightly warm block of good-quality chocolate (heat in microwave for 5-second intervals, checking after each, until just warm to the touch; do not overheat). To produce tight curls, start from the far edge of the chocolate and move the peeler toward you. The delicate curls are best used immediately; you can even shave the curls right onto a cupcake.

    I'm having a hard time making this work. What sort of vegetable peeler should I be using?

    Additional info found elsewhere on website:
    Coils of chocolate make an impressive dessert garnish, and they are easy to make. Melt chopped sweet chocolate, pour it onto a flat surface, spread it to a thin, even thickness, and let cool at room temperature, or refrigerate for about 15 minutes. Scrape it off with a bench scraper, a wide metal spatula for cleaning dough from work surfaces. Or use a vegetable peeler to slice strips from a block of chocolate.
