TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min.
MAKES: 8 servings


  • 8 small balloons, filled with air
  • 4 cups chopped bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup chopped white chocolate, melted and cooled
  • Assorted sprinkles, optional
  • Mousse, ice cream, sorbet, assorted fresh fruit and assorted candies, optional


  1. Clean balloons with a damp paper towel. Drop chocolate, 1 tablespoonful at a time, 2-3 in. apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. There should be eight circles. Pour remaining bittersweet chocolate into a small bowl.
  2. Drizzle 1 tablespoon white chocolate over bittersweet chocolate. Swirl with a toothpick or wooden skewer. Holding the tied end, dip 1 balloon halfway into bowl of melted chocolate, rolling back and forth to coat; allow excess to drip off. Repeat, adding 1 tablespoon white chocolate to bittersweet chocolate before dipping each remaining balloon.
  3. To secure balloons, lightly press each one dipped side down onto a chocolate circle; wait a few seconds before releasing pressure. Refrigerate until set. Gently pop balloons; discard. Fill as desired, with mousse, ice cream, sorbet, fresh fruit or candy. Yield: 8 bowls.
