250g Dark Chocolate
Rum chocolate flavouring
Leaves (well washed and dried)
Melt your chocolate very, very gently either in a double boiler or in the
microwave. The hotter it gets the thicker it gets, so if you see it getting
thick remove it from the heat immediately and stir it rapidly to cool it down.
Add four drops of rum flavouring oil. Mix through well. With a soft brush paint
the back of the leaves thickly with the melted chocolate. Leave the chocolate to
set on the leaves. When set, gently peel the leaf away from the chocolate.
Chocolate leaves are wonderful garnishes for desserts and cakes.
