Julia M. Usher from Recipes for a Sweet Life has brought us another mesmerizing tutorial. With melted chocolate, a vinegar bottle, and some parchment paper you can create this eye-catching creation.

Watch as Julia shows us how to make chocolate lace cups. Julia pipes the white and dark chocolate onto a piece of parchment paper. She wraps another sheet of parchment paper around her bottle of vinegar. Then, she wraps the chocolate sheet around the vinegar bottle. After letting the chocolate cool in the refrigerator, she delicately removes the baking paper. In a matter of seconds she has a stunning solid, lace chocolate cup. She fills it with rice pudding and tops it with yummy berries! Julia suggests filling the cups with pudding, ice cream, or mousse.

She does provide one note on the chocolate you should use, “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.”
