How to Make Chocolate Curls

Melt 1 oz. BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate as directed on package. Spread into very thin layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until chocolate is firm, but still pliable. To make curls, push a metal spatula firmly onto bottom of baking sheet, under the chocolate, so the chocolate curls as it is pushed. (If chocolate is too firm, let stand a few minutes at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.) Or, for smaller curls, use vegetable peeler to form curls from chocolate.


Prepare batter as directed; spoon evenly into 24 paper-lined muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 full. Bake in 350°F oven 25 to 30 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in pans 10 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely. Makes 24 servings.

    I expected to be able to taste the banana in this recipe. I was very disappointed to not taste them at all!
