The Lebanese Recipes Kitchen (The home of delicious Lebanese Recipes and Middle Eastern food recipes) invites you to read this article about How to make chocolate leaves.
Use these leaves to add a stunning touch to a chocolate roll and voila, you’ve created a classic French Christmas cake (see related recipe).
Step 1: Use a small paintbrush to brush melted white choc melts over the undersides of washed, dried organic rose leaves.
Step 2: Place, chocolate-side on a tray lined with non-stick baking paper in fridge until set. Repeat to add a second chocolate layer.
Step 3: Once set, test one by peeling off the leaf – if the chocolate breaks, add a third layer of chocolate to all the leaves. Carefully peel off leaves and discard.
Step 4: Dust lightly with cocoa powder, then brush off excess. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Use to decorate Bûche de Noël (see related recipe).
