Candy Clay Basket

Candy Clay Basket


  • 6-inch Round Pan
  • Light Cocoa, Dark Cocoa and White Candy Melts
  • Lollipop Sticks


  1. Melt Dark Cocoa Candy Melts.
  2. Cut twelve 3 inch lengths of Lollipop Sticks; dip sticks into candy and place on waxed paper; refrigerate to set.
  3. Pour remaining melted candy into bottom of pan to a depth of 1/2 inch. Immediately push lollipop sticks into coating, spacing evenly around edge.
  4. Refrigerate until set and unmold.

An even number of sticks is essential for the weaving to work out correctly.

Make a full recipe of Candy Clay using 1/2 bag White Candy Melts and 1/2 bag Light Cocoa Candy Melts. Roll out 7 cords, each 18 inches long. Weave 5 cords between sticks; smooth seams. Make a rope by loosely twisting remaining two cords together, add to top edge of basket, securing with melted candy, if necessary.
