Chocolate Balloon Bowls Part II

This is long overdue. I made the first chocolate balloon bowl video 5 years ago! Sorry for the long wait. I spent a day designing some new creative chocolate balloon bowls for you to try, I hope you have fun making these. Your friends will certainly enjoy eating them. Oh, and if you do happen to have any balloons… POP! … take a deep breath and wait until the chocolate is set before you clean it up. It is much easier that way.

You don’t really need ingredient list for these, it is pretty basic stuff. But do remember that id your chocolate contains cocoa butter you need to temper it, you an see how to do that here. If you want to colour your chocolate make sure you use oil based or powdered food coloring. Adding liquid food coloring to chocolate will make it seize.

Have fun, I’m off to do some more creative filming for next week.

  1. Hello,
    I think that these look amazing! I was wondering how far in advance could I make them? How long does tempered chocolate last once they have hardened and gotten out of the mould?
    Thank you!

      Hi Charlotee, If carefully stored somewhere cool and away from direct sunlight, then they should last 2-3 weeks minimum. I would make them up toa week prior to when you want them.

  2. Oh I just love your chocolate bowls! I have never done them myself, but would be a cool idea to store some candy or use them in my videos as well. I have a candy review YouTube channel, and I was thinking can one do that with dark chocolate as well? Or does it behave differently?

      I think so too. You wouldn’t guess it was chocolate.
