Chocolate Dessert Bowls (How To)


I love making these little chocolate dessert bowls.  You could make them as a surprise or make them with the kids.  They are very easy and are a fun addition to the dinner table.

Chocolate Dessert Bowls

Ingredients:
*10 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  (You can use any brand of chips you like; I use the
   'Enjoy Life' because I am dairy-free)
*4 balloons (12 in. latex)

First you will need to blow up for balloons about 4 to 5 inches in diameter.  (Don't measure, just use your own judgement as to how large or small you would like your bowls.

Next pour the chips into a microwavable bowl.  Microwave the chips in 30 second intervals (stirring in between) til chips are melted.

Next dip the base of each balloon in the melted chocolate and place on a tray lined with foil.  (The chocolate will accumulate at the bottom and form a base for the bowl.)  Place the tray with the balloons in the refrigerator for about an hour for the chocolate to harden.  


After the hour remove them from the refrigerator and deflate the balloons. Very carefully (and I do mean carefully) remove the balloon by slowly peeling it away from the chocolate.

Next fill each bowl with whipped cream and berries, ice cream, or whatever you like.  


Enjoy!

Happy Cooking,

One Day of Magic




It snowed in Georgia yesterday.  I know, I know, big deal right.  Well, here it is a big deal.  Our weather, most times, consists of warm, hot, very hot & humid; to rain, cold, and icy snow (heavy on the ice).


Yesterday’s snow was a perfect snow, powdery and wet.  It was just right for playing outside.  You could sled, build a snow man; or just take a quiet walk all bundled up and listen to the crunch of the snow under your feet.  And the quiet, there was a peaceful quiet when you just stood and listened.  It’s so quiet you could hear God.

Other places get snow like this all the time.  To the point where they pray for the sun to take the powdery stuff away.  But here in Georgia, for just one or two days we get to feel the magic.  For tomorrow it will be gone and all will be normal: warm, or rainy, or hot, or . . . .  Pick your weather report.  Your guess is as good as ours.


(The day after is even more magical than the day before.)

Happy Snow Day 2020
