Selected Recipes from The Art of the Chocolatier

Chocolate Shavings

Chocolate shavings can be used as a décor element for showpieces, and they are useful for hiding imperfections. They are often used to surround flowers instead of leaves. They can be made from any type or color of chocolate.

  1. Spread a thin layer of tempered chocolate directly onto a marble with an offset spatula. Clean the edges with a triangle spatula to form a sharp rectangle.
  2. Once the chocolate sets, rub your hand over it to warm it and to increase elasticity.
  3. Use a triangle scraper to shave off the chocolate in a fast, curving outward motion.

NOTE: White chocolate sets more slowly than dark chocolate, allowing more time to shave it off as compared to the dark chocolate.


Variation

Marbled Chocolate Shavings: Drizzle dark chocolate onto a marble tabletop, and before it sets, cover with white chocolate, slightly blending them together to create a marbled look. Use an offset spatula to spread the marbled chocolates into a thin layer. Shave off curls as described above.


Flower Vase Showpiece


Clockwise from left on diagram: Leaves, sphere, flower support, circular base for beneath vase, feet, base, support for pralines.

NOTE: All templates can be enlarged or reduced as needed. Spheres and feet are included for size only and are meant to be created using molds.
