So here are our crucial hints :) Remember to use small water balloons as they make cutest bowls :) It’s good to inflate them with a tiny balloon pump (they are hard to fill with air). It’s also important not to heat chocolate too much – its temperature should be around 30 ºC / 86º F. If you oil balloons before dipping them in melted chocolate, it will ease the popping part (the balloon won’t stick to the bowl). When you finish dipping the balloons, refrigerate them for around 15 minutes, and as they are easy melting products, you shouldn’t put anything warm into them ;) Chilled pudding, ice creams, fruit and whipped cream will make perfect fillings.

We hope this idea will bring a lot of fun to your parties or your family life (I forgot to mention that it’s a great project to make with your kiddos). We’re waiting eagerly for photos of your Balloon Chocolate Bowls, so don’t be shy and post them below. Enjoy!
