Glaze for Russian Cigarettes
- 5 1/4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
- 3/4 teaspoon almond oil or neutral vegetable oil
Temper the chocolate with the almond oil as follows: Gently melt the chocolate and stir in the almond oil. Dip the bottom of the pot of chocolate in a bowl of cold water and stir the chocolate until it begins to thicken. Immediately remove from the cold water and dip the bottom of the pot of chocolate in a bowl of hot water. Stir over the hot water just long enough to make the chocolate fluid again, then remove from the hot water.
