There's something called TEMPERING the chocolate. Its the process of heating the chocolate to a precise degree & then immediately cooling until it reaches a degree. Now, we (read: I) can get into the advanced, complicated stuff later on.. Today, its gonna be the easy way of decorating with chocolate!
You'll need -
Modelling Chocolate / Baking Chocolate / Cooking Chocolat
Parchment Paper / Butter Paper
Zip Lock Bag
1. Melt the chocolate in microwave for 1 minute or use the double boiler method to melt the chocolate.
2. Make sure there are no lumps. Beat the chocolate well with a spoon. Pour into a zip lock bag or any plastic bag. Depending upon how thick or thin you want your decoration to be, cut the tip off.
3. Line a parchment paper on a flat surface & draw designs. You can keep a template below the parchment pare & draw accordingly. I just scribbled. :-)
4. Let it cool for 10 minutes. (Or you could place it in the freezer for 5 minutes)
