Chocolate Tart With Semisweet Chocolate Swirl Decorations

Chocolate swirls can be used to decorate any dessert, such as ice cream or cakes, and you can make your own with some melted chocolate and a piping bag outfitted with a small-hole writing tip.

Melt semisweet chocolate and cool it slightly before putting it into the bag. Pipe swirled designs onto wax paper. Be creative!

Cool the chocolate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before removing paper. Use the chocolate designs to garnish your favorite desserts.
