1. Begin by taking the print out of your number and placing it on a plate. Add a layer of parchment paper over the top and tape it to the plate to prevent any slipping.

3. Once your chocolate is melted, carefully spoon it into your Ziploc Bag. Gently push the melted chocolate into a bottom corner of the bag. Take your scissors and cut a tiny portion of the chocolate-filled corner of the bag. This will create a “piping bag”.
