Chocolate Bow

Thought I try chocolate vs. fondant and I love working with it--it's so thin and delicate, but it holds up very well.

Yes, the butterflies ar little chocolate transfers. You can make bows out of candy melts or any type of chocolate that you'd use in molds. You cut acetate strips about 1" wide and 6 " long and then use your spatula to put a thin coating of chocolate on the acetate up to about 5 3/4" . You fold the piece into a bow loop, run your fingers down the sides to clean off any stray chocolate, and pinch the ends to a bow loop. Sit it aside, on it's side, until the chocolate sets up and then gently peel.

How did you make the bow out of chocolate? Is it a certain type of chocolate?
