Chocolate Basket

YOU’LL GIVE a few fun new twists to “sweets for my sweet” when you weave this good-enough-to-eat basket. It’s made from chocolate. In time for Valentine’s Day, Crafting Traditions home economists quickly pulled together this container using easy-to-create chocolate “clay” that’s completely edible. And not only is it a cinch to finish, it’s long-lasting, too. You can store your basket safely in a sealed plastic bag for a month or more—if you can find a way to keep it away from nibblers! Crafterthoughts… You can embellish your basket even further by making a bit of extra “clay” from white chocolate, rolling out a length and forming it into a bow to attach to the basket. Here’s another tasty idea—weave smaller baskets from thinner ropes to use as individual place markers for a party. Don’t contain this kitchen craft only to February 14—it’s a treat to make anytime of year.
