Tip 2
How to Shave the Chocolate
Hold room-temperature chocolate steadily between your thumb and fingers of one hand over a sheet of waxed paper. Draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate piece to make thick shavings. To make shorter shavings, use the same technique on the narrow sides of the chocolate piece. Add to dessert immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.
