Chocolate Bag Basket
These are beautiful filled with chocolate dipped strawberries.
- Buy small brown paper bags and paint them with vegetable oil until the paper is translucent. Turn them upside down to drain out any excess oil. Pour tempered chocolate inside the bag and turn and tip the bag until all of the sides are covered. Turn the bag upside down to pour out excess chocolate. Remove the bag to a parchment paper covered tray and place them on the tray upside down. Put the tray into the refrigerator to chill.
- When firm, CAREFULLY peel off the paper.
You may have to coat the insides of the bags a second time in order to get a thick enough coating of chocolate. This is a bit tricky, so you may have to experiment for best results.
