• Small balloons, filled with air
• Greased cookie sheet or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
Place 5 ounces of the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir until completely melted. Remove it from heat and stir in the remaining 5 ounces chocolate until thoroughly smooth. (You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave…that’s what I do and it’s a lot easier and faster. Just microwave for about 30 seconds at a time stirring after each 30 seconds, until chocolate is completely melted). Spoon 1/2 teaspoon melted chocolate onto prepared pan to form a small disk.
In order to release the air from the balloon, pinch the balloon just under the knot and cut a small hole in the surface between fingers and knot. Very gradually release air; if air is released too quickly, the bowls may break. Carefully peel the deflated balloons from the chocolate bowls.
