If you love chocolate and any sweet treats, this will make your friends say "Wow, how unique"! You can make your own chocolate "bowl" for your treat so easily.

You take a bowl and turn it upside down, cover it with Saran Wrap, melt any type of chocolate, white, semisweet, sweet, etc. and melt it, then "paint it" when it's melted over your upside down saran wrap covered bowl, then freeze it. Once it's frozen, gently remove saran wrap from the bowl and you have your own chocolate bowl to put whatever you desire into!

It's very pretty as the saran wrap crinkles, the chocolate creates it's own personal textures. Then you have your 2 desserts in one. Yes, your friends and family can eat the bowl as well, very cool!

I have been teaching cake decorating and candy making for thirty years. The simplest and quickest method to make chocolate bowls is to blow up balloons, dip each in chocolate and place on a wax-paper covered cookie sheet. You can either put them in the freezer for five minutes or if it is cold outside, place them outside or in your garage for five minutes. If you want a sturdier bowl, you can dip it twice.


And of course, you can decorate it by turning it over and drizzling a little colored chocolate across the bottom of the bowl. It is a little tricky to pull out the balloon. I pierce the balloons with scissors and let all the air out. Then I start at one side of the bowl and gently peel away the balloon. Once it starts peeling away, it usually comes right out. I often fill them with fresh blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.

Make a fancy chocolate bowl using a balloon! Great for any festive occasion.

Total Time: 1/2 hr


  • 1 chocolate bar 24 squares (12 squares per balloon) ($1)
  • cooking oil spray
  • 2 small balloons


  1. Gather your supplies. Blow up balloon (preferably with a pump).

  3. Rinse balloon and dry with paper towel.
  4. Place balloon on a plastic bowl that will hold it at the bottom (knot facing downward). Spray cooking oil and rub all around.
  5. Get a plastic cup and put 12 chocolate squares to melt in microwave a few seconds. Be sure to watch that it not get too hot and burn.
  6. Take out melted chocolate and stir until it has cooled down some. It is very important that you touch the chocolate and make sure it is warm and not hot before pouring. Otherwise the balloon will pop!

  8. Start to pour from the middle top and make dribbling rows. Clean off any excess dripping at the bottom of plastic bowl.
  9. Place in the refrigerator for a few minutes or until hardened.
  10. Now this is the tricky part. Take the balloon and turn upside down on aluminum foil. You will cut with scissors just a tiny cut near knot while squeezing cut together with one hand, so that you SLOWLY release air.

  12. The chocolate will start to unstick from balloon. DO NOT pop the balloon!
  13. Once the balloon has deflated, you can fill with anything you want. I used cool whip and mandarin oranges.
  14. If at first you don't succeed don't worry you can still use the chocolate cup without the rows as in this picture. Turned down or upright.
  15. Have fun, good luck, and enjoy!
