  For Chocolate Flowers: ======================

  thickness. Cut into twenty 1-inch rounds with a cookie cutter.  Roll
  1 chocolate round into tight funnel shape for center of flower.
  Gather 3 more rounds around center, forming petals.  Squeeze together

  chocolate, forming 5 flowers. Refrigerate until flowers are firm.
