Amazing 30 Second Chocolate Leaves

Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!

One of the best tricks that I learned during my day as a chocolatier at Kakao Chocolate was how to make these chocolate leaves in just thirty seconds.

Start by pouring a long blob of tempered chocolate onto parchment paper.

Use a very well cleaned hair comb or a special cake decorating comb to drag lines on both sides of the chocolate.  I tried this at home with a fork and it didn’t work as well since the tines are too close together.

Finger paint the outline of the leaf.

Fold the parchment paper up a little to create a slight curve in the leaf.

Cool in the refrigerator, peel the chocolate leaf off the parchment paper, eat, or use to decorate!

    Heh, when I saw the photos with the specialist gloves and comb, I thought that this would be one for the pros. But wow, so simple to do, and such a pretty effect. I bet the texture feels great in the mouth too, rather than the standard block chocolate.

    Might be a good idea to use several of these leaves to surround a nest of easter eggs for the forthcoming festivities :)

  2. I love this post…. did something like it for my Valentines day cake!

    Looks far easier than my leaves. I would pick firm leaves from my lemon tree – wash them well & rinse in cold water. Dry with paper towel & ‘paint’ the back (veiny side) with chocolate. Place in freezer. Peel lemon leaf from chocolate. They did look nice with frosting roses.
