DIY Chocolate Dessert Bowls

I’m  a busy mom of five teens and I don’t have alot of time to spend in the kitchen, but I’m always looking for ways to to create special moment. These DIY Chocolate Dessert Bowls are one of my favorite ways to do just that. They’re also great for parties and holiday celebrations!

Chocolate Dessert Bowls are easy to make!

With just four ingredients and about 30 minutes, I can create elegant, edible chocolate bowls to fill with a special treat that will delight my family and make memories.

Chocolate dessert bowls are simple to make. All you need is dark chocolate chips, balloons, parchment or wax paper and non-stick cooking spray.

Start by inflating your balloons to the diameter you’d like your bowls’ circumference to be. Wash, rinse and completely dry your balloons. Spray each balloon with a light coating of non stick cooking spray and set aside.

Supplies for DIY Chocolate Dessert Bowls

Then place your chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 2-3 minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to stir. You want the chocolate to be melted and smooth, but not overcooked.

When the chocolate is completely melted and smooth spoon a small amount of chocolate onto the parchment paper to make “spots”. These form the the base for your chocolate bowl so it stays upright.

    Well, the first try was……not the best. But I’m going to try again. I think a)my balloons were too big and b) I didn’t have enough melted chocolate. I thought I had plenty until I dipped out for the placeholders.

    If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!!
