Aha! Here is a great trick. When you want to bring the level of ‘haha, look at what I can do’, try this. Easy and almost too much fun.
- 6 – 8 oz. good quality dark chocolate
- waxed paper
How simple is that? Temper the chocolate as you normally would. Place the waxed paper on a hard work surface and pour the chocolate on it, spreading it thinly to about a 10 inch square.
While warm, spread another piece of waxed paper on top, carefully pressing out any air bubbles that may be showing.
Using a 3/4 inch wide cylinder, roll up the waxed paper and chill at least for 3 hours and as long as 5 days.
To get the shards for your dessert, unroll the waxed paper. The chocolate cracks causing the shards.
Peel back the top waxed paper and using a spatula, carefully lift off the shards.
Now, aren’t you clever? You bet…..people will want to know just how you did that. You gonna tell? I bet not. Just smile.
Thank you, no applause is necessary. Okay, just a little. Thank you.
