An interesting way to make chocolate butterflies

You can make beautiful decorative chocolate butterflies in just a few steps with the help of a book. Decorate birthday and other festive cakes with them.

Butterflies are not difficult to make, and you will have fun doing it. They are a fantastic, delicate and romantic decoration for cakes, but we believe they would look wonderful in a container on ice cream balls, on a chocolate soufflé or panna cotta.

We found the idea and instructions on the blog Welivedhappilyeverafter, and you just need a bit of practice with a cookie cutter.


  1. Dark chocolate for cooking
  2. Masni providni papir
  3. A little butter
  4. Cupcake syringe

Draw the butterfly pattern on the paper first with a wooden pencil, then bold it with a black marker. (Be guided by these photos).

Put the paper in an open book (thicker) – fold it a little and place it so that it looks like a butterfly is spreading its wings. Place greaseproof paper over the paper – also fold it a little.

Brush the greaseproof paper with a little butter to make sure you can peel the butterfly off more easily.

Melt the chocolate in steam, put it in a syringe, then draw a butterfly following the lines on the paper under the greaseproof paper. If it’s easier for you, you can draw it first on a flat surface, and then, while the chocolate is still warm, move it to an open book.

Just keep in mind that the opening of the syringe should be quite small. (You can also draw a butterfly with the help of a plastic bag with the top cut off (but it is important that the hole is small).

Put everything (with the book) in the fridge to set the chocolate. That way you will get a “living” chocolate butterfly that flaps its wings. Be gentle with your little creations and it is best to use them fresh, not to keep them in the fridge for a long time. As soon as they harden, decorate your dessert as desired.
