How to Make Chocolate CurlsWarm 1 oz. chocolate by microwaving it on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the piece steadily and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate, allowing a thin layer to curl as it is peeled off the bottom of the chocolate piece to make long, delicate curls. Or to make shorter curls, use the same technique using the narrow side of the chocolate piece.
