Chocolate Words
  • Lay sheets of wax paper on a flat surface (preferably on a cookie sheet)
  • While chocolate mixture is still warm and "fluid," scoop up a spoonful of the mixture with a large serving spoon
  • Gently tilt the spoon over the wax paper, slowly dribbling a stream of chocolate from the spoon onto the wax paper
  • Move your hand as you pour to "write" in a stream of chocolate onto the wax paper
  • You can spell out whole words or make individual letters that can be arranged to form different words when they have cooled
  • Let the poured "chocolate words" cool until hardened, or place in the refrigerator to solidify
  • The words and letters should easily peel off the wax paper when cooled

Enjoy! Now you can actually "eat your words!"
