Take a look at these tips for creating Chocolate Curls:
Small CurlsStep 1.
1. Carefully draw a vegetable peeler across the broad surface of a bar of semisweet or milk chocolate. This works best if the chocolate is at room temperature. For narrower curls, use the side of the bar.
1. Place 1-1/2 ounces semisweet chocolate (not baking pieces) or milk chocolate and 1 teaspoon shortening in a small, heavy saucepan. Melt over low heat, stirring constantly. Use a metal spatula with an offset blade to spread the chocolate evenly over the bottom of a glass baking dish. Let stand until set.
3. Lift any curls with a wooden skewer to avoid making fingerprints in the chocolate. Use immediately or place a single layer on paper towels in a storage container. Cover and store at room temperature or chill.
