I saw this idea of dipping balloons into chocolate a few years ago on Pinterest and I have wanted to try it ever since with the kids. I used yummy white chocolate to make these cute edible Easter Baskets.
Materials that you need:
White chocolate x 4 Large bars
Greaseproof paper/Tin Foil
Melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave of over a slow heat.
Wash and dry the balloons in warm water to get rid of any balloon residue.
Blow up six small balloons.
Cover a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Use a spoon to make six small circular blobs of white chocolate on the tray. This is to make a base for your baskets.
Dip the bottom of the balloon into the bowl making sure to give it a good covering of chocolate.
Place the balloon onto of the first blob on the tray. Repeat six times and leave to dry.
With a knife burst the balloons and gently peel away the balloon shell.
You are left with beautiful white chocolate Easter Baskets. Decorate as you like with ribbon and chicks, chocolate goodies etc..
and don’t forget the best part of course is eating them!! Yummy!!!
