This chocolate bowl was very delicate. It would start to melt just after a few minutes out of the freezer so I had to keep it on a plate and kept the plate in the fridge right up until serving time. The temperature in the house was rather warm and the additional heat from all the baking didn’t help. During the “photo shoot”, it had to be return to the fridge several times before I landed this decent snap.
Sounds troublesome! But, the actual pretty bowl was rather easy and took no time to make. Given a spring day temperature, it would be in much more stable condition.
No need for any fancy double broiling method that requires constant stirring and leaving dirty pots for clean up. This chocolate bowl only needed a microwave, chocolate, scissors, a bowl, and a balloon. A zip lock bag is optional, and wax paper is only needed if writing letters. Clean up is a breeze!
- Smaller and equal size chocolate chunks will melt easier and more evenly.
- The melted chocolate can be added to a zip lock bag, make a very tiny cut at one corner of the bag, hold and pipe the chocolate like you would a pastry bag. A great way to write and make those fancy swirls.
