Lay your parchment or wax paper out in a tray and put about a tablespoon of chocolate on it. Spread it evenly in a circular motion creating a small circle.

Repeat step 4 until you have all the chocolate bowls that you need and let it dry. It would take about 20 minutes for it to dry completely and you will see a change on how it looks. You’ll know it’s dry when the chocolate has a matte finish and no longer shiny.

Step 6


Now that it’s dry, the fun part begins! Take a pin or something sharp to pop the balloon. If it’s your first time, it would be advisable for you to use scissors instead. Carefully cut the top part of the balloon and let the air out gradually.


Step 7


The balloon should separate from the chocolate on it’s own so you shouldn’t worry. Remove the popped balloon and gently pull the bowl from the parchment or wax paper.

    I would never use a balloon to mold chocolate. Most of them have a type of powdery coating on them so they don’t stick together which will be in your chocolate. Better to go to the craft store and get the properly made candy mold. Yes, you can make bowls with a candy mold!
