Are you ready to impress for your Mother's Day dessert, well this will do the trick.When I first saw someone make this type of chocolate bowl, I was like, "I don't think so", but it was truly easy. You do need patience though! Give it a try, it will be spectacular. You can also fill these up with fruit or ice cream instead. My mom loves creamy things, so I went with this one.
8 balloons, blow up balloons to be the size of an orange
2 8 oz. cream cheese bars, room temperature
1 8 oz. whipped topping
1 tsp. of brewed coffee, but you can adjust the amount depending on your taste. (remember to get this in am when you are making your coffee)
1 cup of chocolate chips
1/4 cup of white chocolate chips
8 lady fingers
In medium bowl, add chocolate and place on a simmering pot of water and melt. When all melted, remove and add in white chips. Give a few stirs, but leave streaks in the chocolate. Take each balloon dip into chocolate half way up or as deep as your wish your bowls to be. Place them on cookie sheet to cool. This doesn't take that long. Give it an hour though.
In another bowl add cream cheese, whipped topping and coffee. I use a blender. Refrigerate for an hour to stiffen cream. Now take the lady fingers and dip the tip into to chocolate and let harden as well.
You don't have to pipe in the cream into the bowls in a fancy way, but I did. Just use a large plastic baggie. Fill the bag, squeeze cream to the bottom and give bag a twist and cut off tip. Fill the bowls as much as you want. Slide in the lady finger and give a sprinkle of coco powder if you have.
I will be bringing you many versions of this at some point, but as always, be creative. Cooking is fun and not meant to be stressful, but only to relieve stress. Enjoy!
