Kitchen Tips
Size Wise
This colorful cherry-chocolate dessert is a great treat to share with friends and family. One pan makes enough for 16 servings.
How to Make Chocolate Curls
Warm chocolate by microwaving it on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate piece steadily, then draw a vegetable peeler slowly over the flat bottom of the chocolate piece, allowing a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom to make long, delicate curls.
For Easy Removal of Dessert From Pan
Line empty pan with parchment or foil, with ends of paper extending over sides. Use to prepare dessert as directed. When ready to serve, use parchment handles to lift cooled dessert from pan before cutting into pieces.
