Edible chocolate cups filled with a spicy chocolate mousse
This is my take on 'Hot Chocolate'. Instead of the typical cup of steaming hot chocolate, these cups are made 100% out of chocolate. Perfect for a party to entertain your guests. They'll get a kick out of the velvety smooth mousse and edible cup that holds it.

  • How to make a chocolate cup. Hot Chocolate Cups - Step 1
    Step 1

    Melt 4 ounces of chocolate with a double boiler, direct heat, or microwave. Break the chocolate bar into small pieces to ensure even melting.

    Allow the melted chocolate to cool to slightly lukewarm but before the chocolate hardens up again. This is very important unless you want to see a balloon covered with chocolate exploding on you (don't ask me how I know).

    Step 2

    Place the chocolate covered balloons on a pan covered with parchment paper.

    Allow the balloons to sit for 30 minutes or stick them in the fridge to harden up faster.

    Be careful when you pull the balloons off the parchment paper. And don't hold them to tight or else the sides will crush in and that's not fixable. If there are slight cracks along the sides or on the bottom, fix them with a piping bag filled with melted chocolate

You probably just pipe some melted chocolate on the parchment paper, making a curve like one half of a heart. Than you'll let it cool, peel the parchment paper of carefully and stick the handle on to the cup with some more melted chocolate. Shouldn't be too hard, I s'pose. ^^
