Lychee In Chocolate Basket


      
Sometimes you feel like throwing caution in the wind, run away from conventional wisdom and try something new which no one has ever done before. I know this is a rare feeling but recently such kind of feeling made me to prepare Litchi /Lychee basket with no reference from any where what so ever. 




While preparing this dessert I kept on thinking how would I fare and whether it would meet the expectations of my friends and family. But to my surprise this preparation was liked by one and all and particularly the chocolate basket, which was moulded by freezing with the cup cake paper and the chocolate taking it's shape. I feel that it is a unique preparation and if any of you prepare it and do send me your feedback, my effort would be successful and I would  be very grateful.


Ingredients:
250 gm Semisweet Chocolate
12-14 Lychee /Litchi, chopped
1 cup Chocolate Whipped cream
2 tsp Sprinkles


Equipments you need-
6 Silicon cupliners
1/2 inch flat paint brush


Method: 
Make a place for tray in your refrigerator to keep silicon cupcake liners. In between melt chocolate by double boiler method ie. heat a sauce pan (low heat) with some water in it and then put your chocolate into a glass bowl on top of the sauce pan, your own homemade double boiler.


 Just keep that in mind that too much heat will ruin your chocolate so keep stirring the chocolate with a wooden spoon. So never get tempted by melting chocolate on high flame. And avoid any contact with steam also.




Now quickly take out the silicon liners from refrigerator, dip the brush in melted chocolate bowl and coat the liners well. Apply thick layer, keep them back in freezer section for another 10 minutes. Again repeat the same process so that your chocolate liner sets well and keep in freezer for another 10 minutes again. 






Now to unmold this, hold the mold and carefully remove the liner. So now the chocolate baskets are ready to be filled with chocolate whipped cream and lychees. Place few lychees on each chocolate basket and fill with chocolate whipped cream. Decorate with some sprinkles and 
serve this chilled.
