The Lebanese Recipes Kitchen (The home of delicious Lebanese Recipes and Middle Eastern food recipes) invites you to read this article about How to make chocolate butterflies.
These cute edible decorations are an impressive finishing touch for cupcakes, such as our Choc-Chip Butterfly Cupcakes (see related recipe). Here’s how to make them.
Step 1: Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Place the melted chocolate in a sealable plastic bag. Cut 1 corner from the bag to make a small hole. To make the butterfly wings, carefully pipe 24 heart shapes onto 1 lined tray.
Step 2: To make the antennae, pipe 2cm lines, ending with a dot, onto the remaining lined tray. Set aside until the chocolate is set.
Step 3: Insert 2 wings in the frosting. Pipe melted chocolate between wings to make a body. Insert 2 antennae into the top of each body.
