How To: Make Chocolate Dessert Bowls Using Inflated Balloons

Make Chocolate Dessert Bowls Using Inflated Balloons

What better way to serve dessert than to place it in a bowl that is also a dessert in itself? Using a balloon, melted chocolate chips, and a few other simple tools, you can easily craft together a fancy-looking dessert bowl made completely out of chocolate.

Simply blow up a party balloon (make sure to wash and dry balloon before using) until they are no larger than 6 to 8 inches in diameter. Tie end in a knot and spray surface with cooking oil. Melt chocolate chips of desired amount in a microwave-safe bowl or in a double-boiler, then place in a bowl. Dip balloon in chocolate to create a bowl shape and place on top of a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Once the balloon chocolate bowl has dried, gently remove balloon from cookie sheet and then pop the balloon very slowly to gently remove balloon from the bowl that should be now set into shape. Fill dessert bowl with dessert items of your choice for a truly decadent dessert.

If you want a bowl that's a little more permanent than chocolate, try a similar balloon technique to make a bowl out of magazines.
