    Step 7:

    - Select the “Shadow” layer we created earlier, and go to Filter -> Blur -> Motion Blur. Change the Angle to -30 and the Distance to 100.

    - Move the shadow around (using the Move Tool) so that it starts at the top edge of the letters, and spreads away diagonally. Change the “Shadow” layer’s Blend Mode to Multiply, and the Opacity to 50%.

    This should give the text more depth.

    Step 9:

    - Open a bow form the Bows Set 2, and place it on top of all layers. Resize it and move it or rotate it till you like how it looks, and place it on top of one of the letters.

    - Finally, go to Image -> Adjustments -> Vibrance, set the Vibrance to -5 and the Saturation to -10.

    ChocolateBar 11 1 - Delicious Chocolate Bar Text Effect in Photoshop

    - Finally, set the Foreground color to Black, create a new layer on top of all layers and call it “Gradient”, then, create a Foreground to Transparent Radial Gradient. Change the layer’s Blend Mode to Soft Light, and its Fill value to 30%.
