How to Make Chocolate Shavings
Making chocolate shavings is a super simple way to dress up your cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes, ice cream — anything! All you need is some good quality chocolate and a vegetable peeler.
Servings 1 cup
Prepare a plate, pan, or other surface with a layer of wax paper or parchment paper so you can catch your chocolate shavings -- and move them around, as needed.
Hold the chocolate bar in one hand, at a bit of an angle, and a vegetable peeler in the other. Using long, even strokes, run the vegetable peeler along the side of the chocolate bar.
Place your chocolate shavings in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them.
Any leftover chocolate shavings or curls can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator or freezer.
A 3.5 ounce bar should produce almost one cup of chocolate shavings.
