  • 1 bag of chocolate candy melts
  • fresh berries
  • powdered sugar
  • balloons


  • Before you begin, make sure to wash and thoroughly dry the balloons. Blow up balloons to small size (about the size of a grapefruit).
  • Melt your chocolate using instructions that came with your chocolate (I melted mine in the microwave).
  • Let the chocolate cool for 5 - 10 minutes in a bowl that is sized so that you can dip your balloon into the bowl. The chocolate can't be so hot that it will pop the balloon.
  • Place six small dollops of chocolate on a cookie sheet with space between each dollop. Dip balloon base in chocolate to cover the bottom.
  • After your balloons are finished, move them to a cool area to set up (harden).
  • After the chocolate is completely set up, it's time to deflate the balloons. We used a sharp knife to pop the balloon (you could also use a pin) and then gently peel the deflated balloon from the chocolate bowl.
  • Fill the bowl with fresh berries, dust with powdered sugar and top with whipped cream. Serve and enjoy!
