How to Make Chocolate Leaves
A guide to making chocolate leaves for cakes and candies
How to make those beautiful chocolate leaves:
We want chocolate leaves that look real, just like the pro's make! Please be sure and choose leaves from a non-poisonous plant such as maple leaves, rose leaves or ivory leaves. We made our chocolate leaves here with rose leaves.
To remove the hardened chocolate from the leaves, start from the stem end and carefully peel the real leaf from the chocolate. Avoid handling the chocolate leaves as much as possible.
Cover loosely and store in the refrigerator away from odor. Use to decorate your favorite cake or candy.
Flavor your chocolate leaves with flavoring oil. Make green white chocolate leaves by using white chocolate and green candy coloring.
