I talked a few days ago about working with candy melts. That is exactly what I used to make these paisleys.
I made a printable for the paisleys if you want to use that one. You can use candy melts to create a variety of simple designs.
You lay down the printout of the shape you want onto a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Then, lay parchment paper on top of it. Put the melted candy melts in the squeeze bottle. Again, look back at my tips for working with candy melts. Then, outline the shape with the chocolate and fill it in – all coming out of the squeeze bottle.
As this point, I let the chocolate sit in a hot water bath because I could only make one paisley at a time. While your chocolate is bathing, take a flat icing spatula and smooth the chocolate with one steady stroke. You may need to practice a bit to become better at this technique. This is the first time I did it, so there was definitely a learning curve. Working quickly, I added the dragees (little silver balls…I’ll add a link on the bottom) carefully around the edge. You can use tweezers if needed, but I used my fingers and a toothpick to help guide. I continued to be able to make an entire sheet of paisleys, and then I’d stick them in the freezer to harden while I started the next sheet.
After swirling the cream cheese frosting up, I laid the paisleys on top to complete my design.
