 Ingredients List

  • 4 oz Bittersweet or white
  • -chocolate, broken up
  • 1 sm Tube white or brown cake
  • -decorating gel


Lightly coat the bottom of an 11x7-inch baking dish with vegetable oil and
set it aside. Melt half of the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over
boiling water. Remove the pan from the heat, add the remaining chocolate,
and stir until melted. Remove the top of the double boiler from the bottom
and continue to stir for at least 10 minutes more, until chocolate thickens
and cools to room temperature. Pour the chocoalte into the prepared baking
dish and spread it evenly with a rubber spatula. Let sit for 10 mintues.
Cut the chocolate in half crosswise with a sharp knife. For fluted borders,
first run a pizza cutting wheel around the entire outer border of the
chocolate, then cut in half. Transfer the dish to the refrigerator and
chill for about 30 minutes, until the chocolate has hardened. Remove the
baking dish from the refrigerator. Holding both Chocolate Cards intact,
turn the dish upside down and gently dislodge onto a counter. Decorate and
inscribe your message on each card with the cake decorating gel (use white
gel on a bittersweet Chocolate Card, and brown gel on a white Chocolate
Card). Refrigerate the cards for an additional 10 minutes after decorating.

YIELD: Two 5 1/2 x 7-inch Chocolate Greeting Cards
