chocolate basket with brownies

I recently made these chocolate baskets and filled them with small pieces of brownies and whipped cream. I think they turned out to be very elegant.

They are very easy to make and you can fill them with anything you like…ice cream, cake, candies, fruits….

To make this basket, you will need the following supplies:

Melted chocolate
Squeeze bottle
Wax paper
Half sphere styrofoam

These are the steps:

Step 1:
Fill a squeeze bottle with melted chocolate.
Also, cover the half sphere styrofoam with wax paper and secure it in place with some tape.

Step 2:

Start squeezing the chocolate randomly all over your foam ball.
Place this foam ball in the freezer for 5-10 minutes until the chocolate firms up.

Step 3:

Take the foam ball out of the freezer. Now, squeeze another layer of melted chocolate randomly all over the foam ball.

Your basket should have a thick coating of chocolate by now. Pop this in the freezer again until the chocolate firms up.

Step 4:
Then, carefully remove the chocolate basket from the parchment paper.

And that’s it… you  have a lovely basket now that you can be filled with whatever you please.

Well, that’s all for today.

Happy caking everyone!
