Just what the Mama ordered

Originally, I did this DIY project for Easter, but I never got around to actually posting about it until, well, now?! However, it worked out perfectly since Mothers Day is this weekend! And let's be honest...what mother wouldn't want ice cream on her special day in a bowl made of chocolate? Or actually, anyone for that matter?! So without further adieu here was how I made 'em...
All you need is (found all my items at walmart)
balloons, candy melts, sprinkles, & of course icecream :-)
Photobucket
Melt you chocolates until nice and smooooooth... 
Photobucket
Take four balloons and blow them up so they fit nicely in your hand...
Photobucket
Then dip the bottom half in the choclatey goodness...
Photobucket
place on wax paper (on a 9x13 pan) to let dry.
Photobucket
Once they are dry...its time to POP those balloons! (make sure the chocolate is totally hard)
Photobucket
Next, carefully peel your balloons out of the balloons (make sure not to poke a hole in your bowls!)
Photobucket
and here they are...so pretty and pink :-)
Photobucket
Now, if you want to add sprinkles, simply dip the edges of the bowls in water and roll the edges like this:
Photobucket
Lastly, for the best part...add your choice of ice cream and enjoy EVERY LAST BITE (literally!)

  1. I love this, and have done it before with milk chocolate! I found it helpful to spray the balloons with a little no-stick spray, so that they are easily removed when the chocolate hardens. Just a little tip!

  15. I've always wanted to make these, but I have always wondered if the chocolate melts in your hands (while you hold it)?

  25. You can also colour white chocolate to any colour you want using an oil based food colour. Ive made striped chocolate bowls.
    Ive filled them lots of different things including lollies or nuts.
