How to Make Delicious Chocolate Bowls [VIDEO]

Stylish Eve has a GREAT idea for serving guests without the mess; make a Chocolate Bowl!

First melt some dark chocolate, about 12oz, in a glass bowl using a ‘bain Marie’ – a glass bowl resting in a saucepan of hot water. This indirect heating allows the chocolate to melt, but without splitting. It also ensures the chocolate doesn’t get too hot. Once melted, blow up a small balloon, tie it off and then take a small spoon of chocolate and dab it onto a sheet of greaseproof paper to make the bowl’s base. Then dip and roll the balloon in the molten chocolate to cover the bottom half, ensuring it has an even lip. Lift the balloon out of the chocolate and roll it in the air a couple of times to cool the chocolate a fraction and then rest it on the chocolate disc on the greaseproof paper. Repeat the process for as many bowls as you wish to create. Leave in a cool place for an hour, and then to complete the bowl-making process, simply burst the balloons!

It’s a great way to add some flair to your desserts.
