These adorable baskets were made by Shelley Hart, Silver Chef with Demarle At Home ~ they're perfect for Easter, Baby or Bridal Showers, or just for fun!
Melt a bag of your favorite chocolate chips with 1 Tbsp. of shortening, then using the pastry brush, paint 2 layers of chocolate in each Brioche or Charlotte shape. Once chocolate losses it’s shine remove each bowl from the tray and fill with your choice of filling. If filling with pudding, zest chocolate bar to decorate top. If you're adding a handle to your basket, (bubble tape or thin licorice works well), press into the second layer of chocolate coating when still wet and let sit until set.
