Our friend Antonella writes for a fanciful idea of chocolate baskets: a quick dessert, but effective, with great scenic presentation but above all ... delicious!
"The base is in shortbread, everyone will have his own recipe, I make one that must not rest, with the oil of seeds instead of butter, but any recipe is fine.
On the base of the baskets, after baking, I spread a very thin veil of fig jam, then the melted chocolate (half fondant, half milk).
When the chocolate is still soft, I decorate it with walnut, almond and raisins.
These baskets are actually very easy, but super good. I make chocolate baskets also in other variants, with white chocolate and pistachio! You can indulge yourself according to your taste."
