I’m sure you’ve seen Chocolate Dessert Bowls before. They are a really special and beautiful way to serve a dessert. Did you know that they are really simple to make? These chocolate dessert bowls are perfect for serving something special this Valentine’s Day or on any occasion! Fill them with ice cream, pudding, sorbet, or your favorite dessert.
Chocolate Dessert Bowls
- Dark chocolate chips
- Small balloons
- Non stick cooking spray
- Parchment Paper
Inflate balloons to the size bowl you wish to create.
Wash, rinse, and completely dry the balloons.
Spray each balloon with a light coating of non stick cooking spray and set aside.
Place dark chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 2-3 minutes stopping to stir every 30 seconds.
When chocolate is completely melted and smooth spoon a small amount of chocolate onto the parchment paper. This will become the base for your chocolate bowl.
Carefully dip the balloons into the melted chocolate. Use a spoon to smooth the chocolate if necessary. You’ll want the chocolate coating to be a fairly even thickness. Place the chocolate coated balloon onto the chocolate base you created on the parchment paper.
Place the chocolate bowls in the freezer for 20-30 minutes or until they are completely hard.
Remove the bowls from the freezer and use a knife of pin to pop the balloon.
Remove all of the balloon remnants from the bowl. Return the bowls to the freezer until ready to use.
I filled my bowls with a simple chocolate ice cream, added whipped topping to each, and sprinkled hearts over top for the perfect Valentine Treat! The bowls can be filled ahead of time and returned to the freezer to make serving time easier.
While these are perfect for Valentine’s Day imagine all the possible occasions and ways you might serve dessert in a lovely chocolate bowl!
