Are there tutorials/videos to make chocolate transfer sheets? I've thought about ordering some premade chocolate transfer sheets online, however, there is a disclaimer where the company cannot be responsible for any damage done in shipment due to overheating. Well since these sheets are made from chocolate, how could I order them and know for sure they'll get to me unmelted?

Any quidance would be greatly appreciated.

You really can't make true chocolate transfer sheets without pretty fancy equipment--they're basically silk screened or direct print colored cocoa butter that is applied micro-fine.

They are sturdier than you think, so it might be worth trying to make an order.

I've ordered tons and never had an issue... if you were int he middle of a 100+ degree heat wave u might think about waiting. Otherwise, you're fine.

You can, however, make custom chocolate transfer sheets using cocoa butter colors (check out by painting with them on acetate. Obviously it would be very tedious to try and make repeating intricate designs such as you buy on premade sheets, but if you wanted a custom design or a message, this is a great technique. You can also use the cocoa butter colors to paint directly on chocolate and inside chocolate molds.

I was looking around to see what kinds of transfer sheets were available. The following site has some interesting transfers including horizontal stripes, not the one everyone is looking for but close.

Scroll down and click on "Make your own resuable transfer sheets." This is using a custom culinary stencil and I think you can get those made here:

Thank you all so very much for these suggestions. As we approach the colder months, I'll order some and give them a try. I may try and make my own no that there is a tutorial on how to do that.

Again, thank you all!
