Recipe Tips

Size It UpSweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How To Make Chocolate CurlsMelt 2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate as directed on pkg. Spread with spatula into a very thin layer on a baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm but still pliable. To make curls, push a metal spatula firmly along the baking sheet, under the chocolate, so the chocolate curls as it is pushed. (If chocolate is too firm to curl, let stand a few min. at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.) Use a toothpick to carefully place chocolate curl on a wax paper-covered tray. Refrigerate 15 min. or until firm. Use toothpick to arrange curls on dessert. Store any remaining curls in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6 months.
