    Kay Demonbren's Note:

    From Alton Brown and the Food Network. This is a great little tip for "writing" on your edibles. Use it on cakes, cookies, muffins, pancakes, whatever. You're only limited by your imagination. I have also used this recipe with white chocolate chips, worked very well. You don't even need pastry bags or tips for this one. Yield is approximate, as I didn't measure the chocolate once melted.

      This was a lot of fun!! I made spirals and hearts...all kinds of fun stuff for a cake I made today for Valentines. I melted my chips with 2 tsps veg shortening in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. I spooned it into a freezer bag, snipped the end of and went at it. I practiced on a piece of wax paper before decorating and on a whim stuck the paper in the freezer for a min or two and ended up useing them as well!! I carfully lifted the set designs off the paper and stood them up in the frosting. You were correct in saying you are only limited by you imagination. Thank you for posting, I'm positive I will be doing this again and again!

      Totally easy and worked great. I stuck it it the microwave, it only took about 2 minutes, then poured it into a squeeze bottle, and it wrote perfectly. Thank You!
