How to Make Chocolate Curls

Warm chocolate slightly by heating it in the microwave for a few seconds until you can just smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily between your thumb and fingers of one hand and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate piece. Allow a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom. This will make long delicate curls. To make short curls, use the same technique on the narrow sides of the chocolate piece. To arrange curls on a dessert, use a toothpick to lift them into place.


Substitute 1/4 cup milk for the creme de menthe and creme de cacao liqueurs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I first made this pie in the mid-70's and my family loved it so I made it frequently. I first made this pie in the mid-70's and my family loved it so I made it frequently. In one of our many moves, I lost the recipe and have not made the pie in many years. Thanks to your website, I now have the recipe again and I can again make this light and delicious dessert for my family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taste like Andes mints--my favorite. Taste like Andes mints--my favorite. And so easy to make. Measure the liquors very carefully. I discovered the hard way that even a little too much will taste like way too much and ruin it.
