First things first: Chocolate Cups
I started out with 5″ latex balloons. Blow them up, but not all of the way. Just about as big as you would like the chocolate cup to be. (I recommend using a pump to blow them up. You can do it yourself, but it does take a little more effort with smaller balloons… trust me!)
You will need 1 balloon per cup. So blow up as many balloons as you need cups.
Dip the bottom of the balloon into the chocolate. Be sure you cover as much of the balloon as you need to. However high up the chocolate is on the balloon is how deep your cup will be.
When your chocolate has completely set, pop the balloon. (Be sure that the chocolate has had time to set completely. If not, when you pop the balloon, it will collapse the sides of your chocolate cup).
The balloon will peel right off of the chocolate if it has set up enough. And that’s how you make a chocolate cup with a balloon.
On to the Easter treat:
To make the Easter treat, I placed the chocolate cup on a nice platter.
Place a scoop of ice cream in each cup, cover with colored coconut, add a peep and some jelly beans…
And you have a super sugary-sweet Easter treat!
