Make a chocolate basket

Make a chocolate basket

This easy chocolate basket idea is a fun way to get your kids started in the kitchen.  Put some fruit in it to make a yummy, sort-of-healthy dessert.

What you need:

  • 1 x packet of chocolate melts
  • 1 x resealable sandwich bag
  • 1 x bowl
  • fridge
  • microwave

Number of players:


Fill the bowl with water and then put it in the freezer overnight (or until it freezes.).

Now put the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl and melt it in the microwave.

Do it in short bursts of 20 seconds, stirring in between or it will burn. Keep going until it's smooth and melted.

Put the melted chocolate into the resealable bag. Seal the top. Now snip off a corner of the bag.

Get your bowl out of the fridge, unmould the frozen water and you should have a perfect half circle of ice on which to make your basket. If the ice lump won't come out, run the bottom of the bowl under a warm tap.

Now use the resealable bag to zigzag lines of chocolate over the lump of ice. Go both ways in a basket pattern until you have a chocolate basket.

Put it in the fridge to set for about 10 minutes.  Now take it out and wait for the ice to melt a bit. The chocolate basket should come off easily.

Fill it with fruit and serve!
