Piped chocolate henna cookies
This is the second set of cookies I made for the Go Bo bakesale, this time using melted chocolate/ candy to pipe henna designs. This one was a bit of a learning curve. The consistency of the melts, the fact they set up quick and have to be reheated and the piping properties all make chocolate much more of a pain to work with than royal icing. These took considerably longer than RI designs would have, but by the end I’d somewhat streamlined the process with a few tricks I’d figured out. I hadn’t seen anyone else using pure melted chocolate/ candy in this way as opposed to chocolate flavoured icing, so it’s good to know it can be done, albeit in a more fiddly way!
thanks for looking,
