Tulip Chocolate Bowls

Ice cream filled tulip chocolate bowls are the perfect sleep over food. I had a sleep over recently and, luckily, was able to make them in advance. They are super easy to make and equally as delicious to eat. I filled them with ice cream, but there are many more filling options including fruit, mouse, yogurt, candies, ect. Whatever you fill them with, your guests will be amazed with the decorated edible bowls. 

About 10 blown up water balloons
2/3 bag of Chocolate chips
2/3 bag of White Chocolate Chips
Food coloring (I used 3 drops of red to make pink)

Let’s Get Cookin’
Blow up 10 water balloons to about the size of an orange. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  

Melt chocolate in microwave bowl. Use half power and 1 minute 30 seconds, stir. Continue to microwave for 10second segments until melted.

Repeat with white chocolate chips.

Scoop ½ of white on to melted chocolate in the bowl.
Dye other half the color of your choice.

Scoop all in to the melted chocolate bowl. Let chocolate sit for about 5 minutes or until thickness of pudding.

Take a water balloon, dip in to chocolate, and give a little twist. Than rock it back and forth, and side to side.

Lift, swirl quickly and then place quickly on cookie sheet. Continue with the rest of your balloons. Chill for 30 minutes in fridge or until set.
Once set use scissors to snip a whole on top of balloon. Let the balloons deflate. If still stuck carefully pull the balloon off and throw away.

You can store them in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Fill with choice of fruit, mouse or as I did ice cream just before serving.

Will I make them again… Yes they are so cute and fun to eat. My friends and family loved them.
