Have you ever wondered how to make those amazingly beautiful handmade Laced Dessert Cups that look so complicated and technical? I found a video by Julia Usher that will show you how to easily make Chocolate Laced Dessert cups yourself and impress your friends and family at your next party or get-together.
What you will need:
- 1 – three inch diameter bottle (to form the shape)
- parchment paper (roll and sheet)
- parchment paper cones
- semi sweet chocolate
- white chocolate
- paring knife
- mousse, pudding and/or fruit to fill the cups
You could use most any chocolate for this project, even candy melts, though I prefer to use a premium couverture chocolate because its relatively high cocoa butter content gives it great flow-ability and mouth-feel. Brands I most often use are Callebaut, Valrhona, and Guittard. I avoid the usual store-bought brands like Nestle and Hershey’s, as they don’t flow as well and are more waxy due to non-cocoa butter fat substitutes. They also set a lot faster, which may make it harder to pipe the entire lace piece before it hardens.
