Make Spring Chocolate Party Bowls!!

Photobucket
Hi there! My name is Aarean (pronounced Arial but with an “N” on the end) from The Color Issue and I am a color enthusiast (if there is such a thing?!)
I am passionate about using colors that compliment one another. Whether it be in your wardrobe, your home, your garden, even on your dinner plate…color is essential to life! There is just nothing like a good blend of beautiful undertones and contrasts, to me it makes a perfect palette.

Today I want to share a delicious way to celebrate Spring — DIY Spring Party Bowls!!

All you need is (found all my items at wall-mart)
balloons, candy melts, sprinkles, & of course ice cream :-)

Melt you chocolates until nice and smooooooth…

Take four balloons and blow them up so they fit nicely in your hand…

Then dip the bottom half in the choclatey goodness…

place on wax paper (on a 9×13 pan) to let dry.

Once they are dry…its time to POP those balloons! (make sure the chocolate is totally hard)

Next, carefully peel your balloons out of the balloons (make sure not to poke a hole in your bowls!)

and here they are…so pretty and pink :-)

Now, if you want to add sprinkles, simply dip the edges of the bowls in water and roll the edges like this:

Lastly, for the best part…add your choice of ice cream and enjoy EVERY LAST BITE (literally!)

  9. Question: Will the chocolate bowls melt in your hand as you eat the icecream? they seem like they might be messy.

  15. Hello Jen,
    Thanks for having Aarean stop by and visit us on your blog. Her colorful chocolate ice bowls are super cute. I know my ten year old would love to make them for our next party. Happy Easter!

  16. What a cute idea for parties! Just change the colors up (dark chocolate and maybe gold sprinkles) and this would work for a grown-up occasion, too!
