Chocolate Curls for Devil's Food Cupcakes

devil's food cupcakes

Use the curls to decorate our Devil's Food Cupcakes. This recipe is from "Martha Stewart's 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.
