How to Make Chocolate Leaves

Step-by-Step

  • 1For chocolate leaves, brush melted chocolate on undersides of holly or lemon leaves (I have also used plastic leaves of different sizes). Place on wax paper lined baking sheet.
  • 2Refrigerate until firm, it only takes a few minutes.
  • 3Carefully peel off leaves (they will look like real leaves and will add a special garnish to your desserts. I make them up and keep on hand, You can add to a simple scoop of ice cream with some berries and whipped cream... very easy and beautiful presentation!
  • 4I don't waste a drop of the melted chocolate! I make little squiggly lines, circles of different sizes, dots... and save them for garnishes too!
