Chocolate trees

A chocolate garnish that is perfect for these times, in which nature is becoming an increasingly important source of inspiration for design. Instead of using ornamental galettes made from chocolate, it is also easy to make natural shapes such as trees and coral. You can also add flavour by using cocoa or another type of powdered ingredient to represent the ground underneath.
