CHOCOLATE BASKETS

  • Ramekin or other small bowl
  • Chocolates for melting - dark, milk chocolate and/or white chocolate
  • Plastic food storage bag
  • Aluminum foil
Melt the chocolate flavor of your choice in a plastic food storage bag inside a bowl of very hot tap water. While the chocolate is melting, cover the back of your ramekin with aluminum foil.

When chocolate has melted, cut a tiny hole in one corner of the plastic food storage bag and drizzle chocolate in a circular motion over the aluminum foil coated ramekin. Be sure to cover the entire back of the ramekin, paying particular attention to the rim. You may wish to drizzle extra chocolate here for support, as this will be the top rim of your basket.

Allow the chocolate to cool and harden, remove both the foil and chocolate gently from the ramekin. Once you remove the foil, your chocolate basket is ready to fill! Anything you put in here will be special. You might even fill it with some of your own confections! Store in the refrigerator for best results.

CHOCOLATE SPOONS

They cost a fortune in the stores, and you can do these easily at home. They’re great for stirring into coffees or teas and they make a lovely gift for the special people in your life.

  • Plastic spoons
  • Dark Chocolate
  • White Chocolate
Put the dark chocolate into a food storage bag, seal it and immerse it in very hot tap water to melt. While the chocolate melts, prop the plastic spoons against a cutting board so that the bowl of the spoon is flat.

Cut a tiny hold in one corner of the food storage bag and drizzle the melted dark chocolate over the bowl of the spoon. Wait a few minutes to allow some hardening and coat the back of the spoon with the dark chocolate as well. Allow the dark chocolate to completely harden while melting the white chocolate. Using a side to side motion, drizzle the white chocolate decoratively over the dark chocolate.

When the spoons have dried completely they can be individually wrapped or gift boxed. It’s a sweet idea.
