Does it really matter what goes in the bowl? Hardly. But a massive chocolate sundae would be pretty nice. It is summer after all. This is an easy tutorial on how to make edible chocolate bowls like what you see here.
If you're using white chocolate, you can add some color to create petal-like bowls. How cute!
You will need:
12 ounces (1 bag) white candy melts
6 ounces (1/2 bag) pink or other color candy melts
12 small balloons (water balloons work great)
Non-stick mat or parchment paper
2 microwave-safe mixing bowls
2 rubber spatulas
1. Blow up the small balloons--not the large ones. No need for helium.
In two separate bowls, melt the candy melts according to the manufacturer's instructions in the microwave. If the melted mixtures are too thick, you can add a teaspoon of oil and stir into them.
To create petals, add a few drops of the pink (or any other candy melt color) and swirl with a tooth pick.
Gently dip the balloon in the candy melt.
Place the dipped balloons onto parchment paper or silicone sheet to set up, which may take a couple hours. Feel free to chill in the fridge to speed this up.
