Today I am making  Easter Basket Cupcakes.  These little baskets would be perfect for Easter or May Day!

Simply melt a little chocolate candy coating or chocolate chips. Place the melted chocolate in a zip loc bag. Snip off a tiny bit of one corner of the bag. Pipe the chocolate onto wax paper. I drew a handle shape on a piece of copy paper and place wax paper on top.  It gave me a guide and I could slide the wax paper around using the guide over and over.

Allow basket handles to harden completely and then stick them into the frosting on your favorite cupcake.  I used sugar flowers for my basket, but you could easily pipe flowers or fill the basket with jelly beans or colorful chocolate eggs.
