  • Welcome to howtocookthat.net, I'm Ann Reardon. Today I am going to show you how to make chocolate

  • flowers. To start with you're going to need a rolling pin or something round, two thin

  • strips of baking paper, some melted chocolate, sticky tape and a Ziploc bag.

  • Pour your chocolate into the Ziploc bag and then cut off one corner. Start with a small

  • cut because you can always make it bigger if it's too small. I'll show you a few different

  • petals. First of all pipe some circles in a row on the baking paper. And then I like

  • to put the bag of chocolate into a bowl to stop it tipping out just bend the tip upwards.

  • Take a second sheet of baking paper and place it over the top of your chocolate and then

  • using your thumb or your finger, push the chocolate upwards making it into a petal shape.

  • Then peel the top sheet off, and this makes them very thin so they have that petal-like

  • look to them. And then place the sheet over the rolling pin so that the petals curl around

  • and then once they set carefully peel them off the paper.

  • For a second time, pipe some circles of chocolate and this time spread them out using a spoon

  • to make them elongated and then cover them as before. Make sure you are using tempered

  • chocolate; otherwise your petals are going to melt just as soon as you take them out

  • of the fridge. If you're not sure what tempered chocolate is then click on the link in the

  • description below this video to go to the chocolate playlist and in there you will find

  • a video on how to temper chocolate and another video on what chocolate to use for chocolate

  • decorations. This type of petal that we've just made curls over at the top like in a

  • flower that has been open for awhile

  • The third type of petals that we are going to make are the smaller ones that you'll need

  • for the center of your flower. For those place a circle of chocolate on your baking paper

  • as you did before, spread them out using a spoon and then a second sheet of baking paper

  • over the top and spread them out. Peel it off to make them thin, then put another sheet

  • of baking paper over the top and roll it up into a tube and use some sticky tape to keep

  • it in that tube shape and then just allow it to set. And then when you take them off

  • the baking paper you can see that you've got those tight smaller petals for the center

  • of your flower.

  • To put your flower together use a cookie cutter ring and place a dollop of chocolate in the

  • middle and then starting with the outer bigger petals, put them around the edge, usually

  • 4 or 5 petals is ideal. Then I'm going to use the petals that curl over a little bit

  • on the next row and then the smaller tighter chocolate petals right in the center. If you

  • don't have a cookie cutter ring that's circle like that, you can just improvise and use

  • some paper towel rolled into a circle or anything that you have that that's sort of shape just

  • to give the petals some support while the chocolate is setting.

  • Once the chocolate is set you can take your flowers and place them where you needed them.

  • For example in this one is on top of the chocolate cake.
