Making those beautiful chocolate stripes using a plastic baggie!

I just recently made 900 Chocolate Covered Coconut Bon-Bons with beautiful contrasting chocolate stripes. In that process, I have had a lot of practice getting to know the art of making those fancy chocolate lines on my candies! Along the way, I came up with a couple of tricks that I would love to share with you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Use this process over any chocolate treat!

You’ll Need:

  • Chocolate Melts – a contrasting color to your dipped chocolate color
  • A Zip-Tight Baggie
  • Scissors
  • Oven mitts
  • A pizza pan, or thin baking pan – like a cookie sheet
  • A pot of water, steaming on the stove
  • Dipped candies, dipped pretzels, or other fun treat

Now:

  • Melt your chocolate melts using the instructions on the back ofย  chocolate melt bag
  • You may need to fold your zip-tight bag over, to get closer to the bottom of the bag
  • Pour the melted chocolate into the plastic bag
  • Squeeze the air out of the bag, and zip it shut

  • If you run out of chocolate, repeat the steps above!
