I need to make a 10" chocolate shell made to look like a Reese cup. My plan was to use a quiche pan, but the deepest I can find in that diameter is 2"... I need at least 3-4" to accommodate the height of the cheesecake... Is there a way to make a pleated liner to brush with the chocolate?
Do you have the giant cupcake pan? If so that's the best to use for a chocolate shell. I used it when I made a giant Reeses peanut butter cup cake and I got the idea from others here (ddaigle). There are other threads here in the forum on this topic.
wow - i had no idea the name was this long!
Ano I don't have the cupcake pan but it would be too small anyways I need it to be 10 inches in diameter
what about parchment paper? if you can get some 18 inches wide - you can make something like a giant coffee filter - to fit into the pan & then gently brush the chocolate onto it. The other option - maybe a little less time consuming - with parchment paper - just make the collar - double or triple the circumference - fold accordion style & use that around the edge. you'll just need to be real careful where the bottom & the paper join - to seal that before applying the chocolate to bottom & sides.
How about using a 10" (or larger) pie plate? If you use a glass one, once you coat the inside with chocolate, you can pop in the freezer for a few minutes and then the chocolate "shell" should pop right out.
oops - just read you need it to be 3-4 inches high and most pie pans are probably 1-2 inches....you could tape acetate onto a pie plate (it's the correct shape without the ridges) and extend the sides then brush on chocolate?
