How to Make Chocolate Curls
Warm 1 oz. chocolate by microwaving it on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold chocolate steadily, then draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate piece, allowing a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom to make long, delicate curls. Repeat with remaining chocolate.
