Step 2: Making the Shapes

1. Get out about 15 orange candy melts and put them in your  microwavable bowl.

2. Microwave the candy melts for 30 seconds or until melted.

3. Blow up a balloon as big as you want your basket ball to be as long as the balloon isn't bigger than your bowl.

4. Dip just one part of your ballon into the candy melts just like in the picture.
5. Repeat twice, but do one of them with milk or dark chocolate and the other with white chocolate.


Step 3: Drawing the Lines

5. Draw laces on the brown circle with the white chocolate using a popsicle stick to make it look like a football.
