How yummy do those look?!?! They're super easy to make
and incredibly delish! You and your little one are
sure to enjoy making this fun treat brought to you by Bakerella
Okay, I did help a little bit here. We blew up regular size balloons about halfway so they were still small, but found that water balloons worked best. They are a perfect size for this project, just hard to fill with air instead of water. I about busted a lung.
After you blow up the balloons, wash them off and let them dry. And before you use each one, spray a little non-stick cooking spray on each. Just a little.
Okay, here’s what you do.
Melt some semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate or confectionery coating. I used the same candy coating I use for cake pops. Let it cool slightly before using. It doesn’t need to be super hot.
Spoon a small amount on a wax-paper-covered baking sheet.
Then take one of your prepared balloons and dip it in the chocolate. Dip it in enough so the chocolate makes a bowl shape around the balloon.
Remove from the chocolate and place the balloon gently on top of the chocolate waiting on the baking sheet.
Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
And like I said earlier … just fun.
You can place the tray of balloon bowls in the refrigerator to speed up the drying time.
Then it’s time for the really fun part.
Pop them all with a pin.
Gently remove the balloon carnage from the inside of the cups and they are ready to go. If you want, you can also serve other treats in them like ice cream.
Fill each cup as full as you want.
Then you can top them off with whipped cream.
Finally, you can add some sprinkles. As few…
or as many as you like.
Come on… you know you do.
And when you’re all finished, you can eat the bowl, too.
Enjoy making a mess!
