Can anyone tell me the best way to curl chocolate? Also, in your experience/opinion, what chocolate is the best tasting and easiest to work with. Thanks y'all

I melt a good semi sweet like gharadelli and pour into a loaf pan then let it harden again in the fridge...I pop it out and use a good cheese slicer and it makes pretty good curls

It's funny that you mention chocolate curls because I've been practicing making them today! Didn't have too much luck, I was trying to make the big ones, but after looking up online I found two websites that might help us.

They sell them at cake and candy supply stores.

Thers a couple ways depending if you want big ones or smaller ones. You can use a vegetable peeler on the block of chocolate to get smaller ones. For big ones melt chocolate and spread on the back side of a cookie sheet. Allow to set up but not 100%. Use a bench scraper or a pallet knife to push chocolate into curls.
