Hi, my name is David Levine. I own Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at Today, we're going to be making chocolate dots to decorate your cake. When you're making your chocolate dots, you can make them in a variety of types of chocolate. You can make them in milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate or you could color the chocolate in your own. What we're doing today is we're going to be using a dark chocolate to make the dots with. We have a tempering machine here. If you don't have tempering machine at your house, don't worry about it. You can create your own setup of a double boiler. Simply take two pots, fill one with water, put a smaller pot, put chocolate in it. The most important thing is make sure you stir it on a regular basis in order to bring the chocolate into temper. When you go to make your chocolate dots, what's really important is having a funnel. You can get a funnel at any confectionery supply store online. Simply take the chocolate, we're going to fill it up and we're using chocolate that's in temper and we'll let it fill into the funnel and then when you bring the funnel down to the parchment paper on a cookie tray, the trick is to make sure that you're nice and close to the table. The closer you are to the table when you put out the dot, the more control over it you have the size of the dot you're making. After you've made your tray of chocolate dots, what you'll do is you'll take it, put it in a cooling box or the refrigerator, be sure you don't keep it in for a very long time because the humidity will cause the chocolate to bloom. You'll make your tray of dots and then after it's been in for a little bit of time and the chocolate is set, you can take it out and put it on a tray or your cake. Thank you for watching today and once again my name is David Levine with Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at and have a sweet day.
