Chocolate Dessert Help?
I was watching wizards of waverly place on disney channel and it was the episode where Alex goes crazy over chocolate. I was wondering how you would make the chocolate cup w/ the straw that she smothers into her face at the restaurant in that episode. It looked so good! What was in the cup? it looked like whipped cream and like fruit or something?I know how to make the chocolate cup but I don't know how to make that chocolate straw. Should I just buy it from the store?
You can buy chocolate straws at Walmart or Fred Myers or any other grocery store. I have made chocolate straws before, they're rather difficult. I dunk a normal straw into melted chocolate. Its really hard though because it crumbles ALOT. But It's worked for me plenty of times. If it doesnt work, yeah, I'd just buy them at a store(:
It's amazing! I found this. http://inhut.info/65403/chocolate-cup
