FOOD HACKS: Chocolate Bowls

Thursday, March 20, 2014

I was kindly invited by the Co-Op to take part in their Food Hacks campaign which has recently been launched to celebrate them offering students 10% off with a NUS card, the first supermarket in the UK to do so. I don't know about other students out there but 10% off my weekly food shop will be a massive help!! The food hack that was chosen for me to recreate were chocolate bowls! So easy to make a such a cute way to present puddings.

You will need:

Yes.. it really is that simple!

Firstly melt the chocolate over a bowl of boiling water.

Then make discs on some greaseproof paper, these will form your bowls stand.

Dip the balloons into the melted chocolate, you may need to neaten these up with a spoon but personally I think they look better a bit messier.

Leave to cool, then carefully pop the balloon and there you have it, a cute little chocolate bowl! I added ice cream and marshmallows to mine but I also think these would go really well with a fruit salad, or add a load of strawberries!
