May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Chocolate Turtle Recipe - Super Easy and Oh So Good

The kids and I have been doing some Christmas crafting and cooking. These Chocolate Turtles are a great knock off of the expensive ones you buy in the store. I can't keep my family out of them!
Chocolate Turtles
Pecan Halves
Bag of Pretzels
Bag of Rolos (I used 2 bags)
Toast your pecans in the oven at 350 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes.
Remove pecans from the oven.
Lower your oven temperature to 250.
Place the Rolos one on a pretzel.
Bake at 250 for 5 minutes until the Rolos soften.
Press a pecan half onto each Rolo.
Let the chocolate harden.
I have to make some more now!

Holy easy and definitely yummy!
Thanks. I'm going to do this. Seriously this weekend!

I tried this out and LOVE them! I had the pretzels and pecans but no Rolos, so went to the nearest country store and they had one pack of 8, so I bought, only two for each of us and that may be a good thing or we'd all be super fat!
SOOOO good!
