I have seen this clever idea of making Balloon Chocolate Bowls floating around.  I have always wanted to try it but my little chefs don’t eat chocolate so I never had the opportunity.  I was so excited to see that one of my Mini Chef Mondays friends from Giggles Gobbles and Gulps created them with her little chefs.  It looks like such a fun activity and creative way to serve a treat.


They started by melting chocolate candy and blowing small balloons.   Another great tip is to drop a small amount of chocolate on a cookie sheet to act as the base of the bowl once it dries.  Then dip the bottom part balloon in the chocolate once it has cooled a bit. If the chocolate is too hot, the balloon will pop.


Pop the balloon after allowing the chocolate to dry for about 5-10 minutes. 


After peeling away the popped balloon from the chocolate bowls, you now have a fun new edible bowl for your favorite treats.  Try adding fresh berries and powdered sugar as shared by our friends.  Click here for more details and the full recipe.
