Pour this mixture onto a Oiled Marble Slab or Granite Counter Top.
Work with Oiled Tools to prevent sticking.
When it is Cooled enough using an Oiled Spatula slide it under the Brittle to make sure
It does not stick to the surface.

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

Bend it before it completely cools to fit from one side of the Bowl to the other you have a handle
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.
