Homemade Edible Easter Basket

A homemade edible Easter basket made out of almond brittle with Spun-Sugar grass (instead of plastic grass), ready for your chocolates and Easter eggs. If you are getting ready for Easter while staying home this is a great project. Almond brittle is very versatile and it can be made into any shape you desire, including an Easter basket! Doesn’t cost much and is easy to do. Remember the sugar is hot! Work it with a metal spatula until you can touch it with your hands. Cheers!

Cut the desired shapes and put your project together either with melted Chocolate

or Heating the side of one peace and placing it on the other.

You can build what ever you want with this method or oil the outside of a stainless steel bowl.

Place the Bowl upside down and place the Almond Brittle on top, let cool and remove it.

Now you have a Candy Dish. If you cut a strip of Almond Brittle 3/4 of an inch and 18″ long

When ready heat up the bottom of the handle and attach it to the Bowl now you have an Easter Basket.

Fill it with Spun Sugar and add your Chocolate Eggs or anything else you want.
