Hey all,
Not sure if there is anything like this up here yet, but I thought I'd go ahead and put it down as my first posting!  I write a craft column for a local paper, so I'm just going to go ahead and post the pictures and instructions that were published here online.



Materials:

5-inch balloons

10 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2  inch paintbrush (under a dollar at the hardware store)

Baking sheet covered with waxed paper

Small saucepan

Scissors

Directions:

1. Melt chocolate according to directions on package in saucepan.

2. Blow up balloon to the size of a tennis ball.

3. Paint lukewarm chocolate on lower half of balloon in scalloped shape. Be sure to paint a thick coat.

4. Stand up on baking sheet. Refrigerate for two hours.

5. Remove tray from refrigerator, and cut a small slit in the balloon to deflate.

6. Carefully remove balloon from chocolate. Return bowl to refrigerator until ready for use.

7. Fill with fruit, candy, pudding or ice cream.

collette peters the renowned chef makes fabulous chocolate ornaments and bowls like that!
so cool that you actually made them, they looked way to tricky for me to try!
