Many of you liked the picture of my chocolate covered wine bottle and asked me how to do it. Its pretty simple but here you go.
First gather your supplies:
Glass Measuring Cup
First you tape the center of your ribbon to the bottom of the bottle then tape it again at the base of the neck and tie a bow on top and then tape it out of the way. Next cover the bottle with a piece of wax paper. I taped it to itself not the bottle. The ribbon will be pulled down later to help break off the chocolate.
Next boil some water and add 1/2 and 1/2 semi sweet and milk chocolate chips in the top pan. ( For a regular sized bottle I used about 3/4ths of each bag) Also add a few tablespoons of water to help thin it out and a pinch of sea salt for some added decadence. Keep stirring the chocolate till its is smooth (I didn’t wait long enough so it was still a little lumpy) and just pour it on. I had a paper bag underneath to catch the extra chocolate.
When the chocolate layer is cool melt about 1/2 bag of the white chocolate chips in a glass liquid measuring cup with a tablespoon of water and melt them in the micorave. It will only take 30-45 seconds and remember to stop and stir frequently.
Then drizzle over the bottle for decoration. You can see I have some thicker lines and some thin lines I like the thin ones better to get those just keep your measuring cup moving quickly from side to side.
Yummy! I made this for my MIL for Christmas and it was a hit with the whole family. They were all eating the chocolate off the bottle!
