The trick is to use tempered couverture chocolate. I used about 8 ounces of tempered chocolate and about 8 ounces of pretzels and put them over a 1-quart bowl covered with plastic wrap. Remove from the plastic wrap when it is almost set so you don't crack it.

The basket is filled with chocolate truffles, dried apricots, dried strawberries, and pistachios.
