  1. Chocolate Leaves

Ingredients Required:

  • Fresh clean mint leaves (or any other leaves of your choice)
  • A tooth pick
  • A spatula with a round handle
  • Melted chocolate (white, dark or milk)

Method: Apply a layer of the melted chocolate on the leaves and let them rest on the spatula handle for a while. Next, leave them in the freezer for a few hours, or until the chocolate has hardened.

Take them out from the freezer and gently peel out the leaves from the chocolate. You will notice how the veins of the leaves leave their mark on the chocolate, making the chocolate look so real and tempting to eat.

Leave them randomly on the table, or use it as a garnishing for your cakes or cup cakes. You can also fill a chilled bowl with these leaves and leave them on the centre of the table.

  1. Chocolate Filled Raspberries

 Ingredients Required:

  • Raspberries
  • Melted chocolate (white, dark or milk)
  • Bowl to serve

Method: Wash and rinse out all the water from the raspberries and set them aside. Use a small spoon or find an empty clean syringe and fill it with chocolate. Fill the raspberries with chocolate and leave it in the freezer for a few minutes. When the chocolate is hard, fill a serving bowl with these choco-raspberry fills and leave them around coffee tables for the kids to pop and enjoy.

  1. Chocolate Bowls

You may not be able to keep heavy and warm food in this, but you can definitely fill these bowls with chocolate leaves or the choco-raspberries.

What you need:

  • Water balloon
  • Chilled water
  • Melted chocolate (white, dark or milk)

Fill the balloon with chilled water and make a knot at the mouth of the balloon. Now dip the end of the balloon into a bowl full of chocolate and place it on a tray. You may have to hold this balloon from its top part until it is set at least half way through. Once the balloon is able to steady itself, leave it in the freezer for a few hours to set and become hard.

You can always try and get innovative with chocolates. Give it a try and if they do not turn out well, you can always melt it again and try something else.
