we made something that I’ve been meaning to try for a very long time.
Our own chocolate bowls! For a more elaborate tutorial and where I got the idea from in the first place head over to the very clever Bakerella.
These were made by children, so were not the neatest of bowls, but it did not affect the taste! One of the children, who will remain nameless, thought they would like to create a bowl larger than anyone elses and tried to cover a majority of the balloon in chocolate only to discover when it was time to pop the balloons that it all cracked into tiny pieces. The rest of us, with a bowl shape (and not greed) in mind, simply dipped the base of our balloons* in the melted chocolate as thickly as possible and placed it on some baking paper to set. We put them in the fridge, as we wanted them to set quickly, but you probably wouldn’t need to.
* We used normal balloons blown up very small, but water balloons would be best.
