Video: How to Make Chocolate Cups

Since posting Special Dessert for Dad on Monday, I’ve had several people email me, asking exactly how to deflate the balloon, and wishing they could view a live demonstration.  Originally I recorded a video while making these, but had trouble uploading it due to size.  After receiving these emails I decided to shorten the length to share with you.

I hope after viewing “How to Make Chocolate Cups,” you will feel more confident creating them in your kitchen and even inviting your kids and grandkids to help.

For written step-by-step instructions view Special Dessert for Dad.

Remember, the possiblities are endless for these cute little cups.  Sprinkle colors, drizzle with other chocolates, and fill them to your hearts content.

Here’s the video: “How to Make Chocolate Cups”

  1. Great tips in this video fabulous! I would have never thought to cut it at the top and wait till it deflates. Also the tip on placing the chocolate on the parchment first so its the basse of the cup! GREAT JOB!

  2. Thanks Claudia, I hope this helps when you and anyone else try to make them. They’re very simple!

  3. They are so expensive to buy at the store. Great work!

  4. I love the idea of creating a base for the cup. The cups are fabulous!

  5. Love the tutorial , Vicki ! Great job !

  11. Cass you’re right they’re very expensive to buy ready-made but so inexpensive to make and so easy too!

    I’m thrilled you all enjoyed my video and how to separate the balloon from the chocolate.

    If the chocolate is too hot, wait a minute to let it cool a bit otherwise it will pop the balloon. Otherwise it’s a piece of cake! Enjoy!
