Chocolate Embellishments

4 to 6 ounces of chocolate (60% cocao baking chips)

  1. Trace the design you want onto apiece of parchment paper. Flip paper over and place on a baking sheet.
  2. Put chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on High for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Continue microwaving in 30 second intervals, removing and stirring until completely melted. 
  3. Spoon chocolate into a resealable plastic bag, snip off a small part of one corner and pipe the chocolate onto the parchment paper following the design you traced.
    • Piping at least 1/4" thick are more stable and least likely to break.
  4. Place baking sheet in freezer for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Gently peel the embellishments off the paper and place them on your frosted cupcakes.
