As leaves are a bit scant right now, I used four yellowing leaves from my small home-grown lemon grove. To make chocolate leaves you melt the chocolate, cover the bottom side of the leaves with the melted chocolate using a small brush and leave them to cool in the fridge. Then you carefully peel the real leaf and you get a stunning chocolate leaf to be used for various decorations.
I made four test leaves
and used the rest of the melted chocolate to cover a few of the honey biscuits I had just baked.
The recipe for the biscuits, because husband loved them so much:
- 150 g butter
- 100 g powdered sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 300 g flour
- 1 tbsp honey
- cinnamon, ginger, ground nutmeg
