Fun with chocolate transfers

One of the things that first caught my eye, when I saw the Dove catalog, was the chocolate transfers.

Transfers are images made out of cocoa butter, that can easily be put on chocolate. I loved that they had designs for all occasions, such as orange pumpkins, Christmas holly, red/white/blue firecrackers, blue flowers, multi-colored flowers, bubbles, checkboard, swirls and more!

In my next baking class, we are going to make these pretty ladies!

Now, you may wonder...what are those??? They are white chocolate cups, with a transfer design, filled with mousse.

When I went to our Dove President's Leadership Conference, I watched our Chef, Mark, make these in about 10 minutes, and I was so impressed. He simply took the tempered white chocolate, spead it onto the transfer design, and popped it in the fridge for a few minutes. He then pinched the ends together, and stood it up, and put it back in the fridge to solidify.

Once the cup is made, it's perfect for a petite dessert, such as piping in some yummy mousse!

For my next class, we are going to make some. I want to use the transfer design with flowers, or hearts....and serve a special dessert for Mother's Day.

Ill try to take pictures showing how to do it step-by-step, and put them up on this blog.

Stay tuned!
