CHOCOLATE CURLS: Hold wrapped square or bar of semisweet, sweet or milk chocolate in hands to warm slightly. Unwrap and with vegetable peeler or small sharp knife shave chocolate in long thin strokes to form curls. Shave directly onto dessert. (NOTE: unsweetened chocolate can be used but is more brittle and harder to shave.)
