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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I haven't made this, but I have a similar recipe for 13x9 pan with grahams/pudding that has to sit... I haven't made this, but I have a similar recipe for 13x9 pan with grahams/pudding that has to sit overnite to get "soft". I'm thinking that once it's taken out of the freezer, the thawing might make it soft enough to cut as in the picture. Otherwise get a saw (no pun intended) aka serrated knife and use care and possibly cut when still a bit frozen so layers don't fall apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I make a similar cake using applesauce in between the graham crackers. I make a similar cake using applesauce in between the graham crackers. The graham crackers swell from the liquid in the pudding. If you stack 4 or 5 upright and then put another two stacks next to that (then add the icing) you will end up with a cake that slices properly. It has to sit for the crackers to swell otherwise it will crunch when you try to cut it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I am confused. I am confused. I can see in the picture where the graham cracker/pudding sandwiches are (2 white stripes with graham on either side), but what are the other more tan layers made up of?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Wonderful! Absolutely Wonderful! I will definately make it again. If you are confused with the picture as apparently everyone is, just remember you cut it diagonally, not straight!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I figured out the picture! I figured out the picture!!! You have to cut it at an angle showing more of the graham cracker. Have to admit I was perplexed as well, glad to see I wasn't alone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you would have trouble slicing this cake lengthwise, you could probably bake the cake in a 12x12... If you would have trouble slicing this cake lengthwise, you could probably bake the cake in a 12x12 or 9x13 pan and then slice it. It does look yummy though.
