How to Make Chocolate Curls
Warm chocolate square by microwaving it, unwrapped, on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the square steadily and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of square, allowing a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom of the square to make long, delicate curls. Or to make shorter curls, use the same technique using the narrow side of the chocolate square.

Wow, that looks too yummy. I think I'm gaining weight just looking at it.

Saw New Moon on Saturday, I wasn't dissappointed.
