Chocolate Leaves are beautiful chocolate decorations that look just like delicate leaves. They look gorgeous and are surprisingly easy to make!

You can use a variety of leaves to make chocolate leaves. Just make sure that they are pesticide-free, and have been well-washed and dried. It helps to choose leaves with a pronounced pattern of veins on the back, so the design will more easily transfer to the chocolate.

To make these leaves, you will need:

  • 24 fresh leaves, washed and dried
  • 8 ounces chocolate candy coating
  • Clean, food-safe paintbrush
  • Luster dust to decorate (optional)
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with waxed paper or parchment paper.
