Expert Tips

  • Use of pasteurized eggs eliminates food safety concerns and allows you to enjoy this Bake-Off® Contest favorite.
  • How to make chocolate curls: Chill a bar of good quality chocolate in the refrigerator for a few hours. Then, holding the bar of chocolate in one hand, use a vegetable peeler to shave along the length of the bar to make pretty curls.
