First, melted chocolate is piped into a balloon.

Make sure the balloon is cleaned before inserting the chocolate. Once that’s done, cut the end off with some scissors, and grab a scooper or anything that round and press into the chocolate. Then tape it up to ensure it holds shape. That way, you have what is a personal bowl made out of chocolate!

Once the chocolate is hard, peel away the balloon and add your other ingredients.

In this video, Satisfying Cakes decided to go with a raspberry-flavored filling. However, you are welcome to try other versions of the recipe. As per the video, a spoonful of raspberry jam is placed on the bottom as a base before adding a single raspberry fruit.

Two more ingredients are added: a swirl of raspberry cream followed by a generous portion of fluffy whipped cream. Then, the dessert is topped with half of another raspberry fruit.

Of course, this isn’t the only way to use balloons as a lifehack for cooking. Balloons can also be used to create a different version of chocolate bowls by inflating them and coating them in chocolate.
