Gelatine SuccessFor best results, make sure the gelatine is completely dissolved in the chocolate milk mixture before adding to the cream cheese.

How to Shave ChocolateWarm 1 oz. chocolate by microwaving it on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate piece steadily, then draw a vegetable peeler slowly over the chocolate to form shavings. Repeat with remaining chocolate piece.
