If you want to make a cake or pie look extra awesome, here's a secret:
They're easy, yummy, pretty, and quick to make.
For white curls: 8 ounces of chocolate and 1 tablespoon of shortening.
For dark chocolate: 3 ounces of chocolate and 1 tablespoon of shortening.
Put chocolate and shortening in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments until melted. Stir well.
Spread chocolate on the back of a cookie sheet. Put in the freezer for 3 approximately 3 minutes.
With a spatula scrape the chocolate along the cookie sheet.
The chocolate should curl. If it's too soft, put back in freezer. If it's too hard, let it sit for a few more seconds. Then scrape chocolate again.
Try scraping different spatulas or knives. Or try moving your hand differently to vary the look of the curls.
Put them on a cake or something to beautify.... or just eat them :).
