Chocolate Balloon Bowls

Chocolate Balloon Bowls

After seeing these on Pinterest, I was dying to try to make them! They were actually pretty simple once I figured out a system. Chocolate Balloon Bowls will take your party to the next level AND they are so customizable! You can make any range of sizes and fill them with all sorts of gourmet treats; fruit, chocolate mousse, pudding, ice cream and more!

Materials needed: Balloons, melted chocolate, delicious filling.

To start, I blew up four balloons to a very small, barely-inflated size. I melted chocolate chips in the microwave, mixing it between 30 second intervals to prevent the chocolate from burning.

I dipped each balloon into the chocolate, coating it to form a small bowl.

Dipping the balloons was a little tricky to keep the bowls consistent in size, depth, and pretty with a clean edge.

I used a muffin tin to prop the balloons bowl-side up in the freezer to quickly harden them.

Once hard, I used the balloon to flex the bowl off, being careful to not hurt the delicate edges of the bowl (or pop the balloon) You can also use your finger to gently prod the balloon off the inside of the bowl if it’s resisting removal. If you have more balloons, you could just pop them once the chocolate hardens and not worry about removing or reusing them.

I filled them with freshly cut up strawberries. I would have loved to get fancier with my filling, but I ran out of time! These would be amazing to hold homemade cooled custard or ice cream. (With chocolate shavings on top, of course!)
