Dress Up Desserts with Chocolate

Melted chocolate can be used to elegantly and easily dress up all sorts of desserts.

To dazzle your guests with designer desserts, try this! It's easy to use chocolate to dress up any dessert, especially if you don't have a lot of time. With so many prepared foods out there, you can buy a dessert already made and just add your own home-made special touch. Here, all I've done is taken some melted chocolate chips and put it into a plastic bag. Then, I'm just gonna simply trim off one of the corners to make a little hole and dress up my plate. I'm just gonna do some squiggles and make it really fun. This is where you get to bring out that artist in you. And there you go. All you have to do is set your cut piece of dessert on top of the chocolate and wait for the oohs and ahhs from your guests. Now, another idea for you using chocolate is to simply take wax paper and drizzle some chocolate onto that wax paper. So I'm gonna do lots of fun designs here. This is where you can kinda go crazy and your kids might like to help you with this too. I'm just gonna pop this in the freezer and freeze it until it gets firm. And when it comes out, all you do--Here's one that's already been done. I'm just going to peel back on the wax paper, and you've got this firm design of chocolate, and I'm just gonna break off a piece. So then what I'm gonna do is take my dessert, whatever it is. Here, I'm gonna use some ice cream and just stick in my little design. So, it's very easy, as you can see, to dress up any dessert.
