This recipe makes enough for 4 serves, but with Valentine’s Day in mind, serve 2, preparing only half of the cream and berries, and keep 2 chocolate baskets for another time.
What you need
200g CADBURY Milk Chocolate Melts
2 cups whipped cream or 4 scoops of icecream
375g berries, for serving
- Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe plastic bowl on 50% POWER. Begin with 20 second bursts then reduce to shorter bursts as the chocolate melts, stirring well between each burst of power. Only microwave until 75% of the chocolate has melted. The rest will melt as you stir it. Spoon 2-3 teaspoons of the melted chocolate onto a lined tray to make a small disc approx 5cm round as the base for the baskets. Repeat to make 4 bases.
- PARTLY inflate 4 balloons to the size of a small orange. Lower just the bottom section of each balloon into the melted milk chocolate to coat the position onto the prepared bases. Allow to set at room temperature. When chocolate is firm, pop, remove and discard balloons. Store in an airtight container until required.
- PLACE a chocolate cup onto each serving plate. Fill with a little whipped cream or icecream then top with berries. Serve immediately.
