- Chocolate Curls: Warm BAKER'S Chocolate slightly by heating it, unwrapped,
in the microwave for a few seconds until you can just smudge the chocolate with
your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily between thumb and fingers of one hand and
draw a peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate. Allow a thin layer of chocolate
to curl as it is peeled off the bottom. This will make long, delicate curls. Make
short curls using the same technique on the narrow sides of the square. To arrange
curls on a dessert, use a toothpick to lift them into place.
