To give you all a laugh at my expense...

Well, here is the laugh of the day (or tears, if you are compassionate!)

I just decided to try making chocolate bowls for the first time, using a method I saw online on another site... they said to melt the chocolate, then dunk a small balloon in and coat the bottom, then sit it in a mug to cool...

So I decide to attempt making 2 to start... I will need 6 for this Saturday, but I thought I would play around a bit and experiment....

So I dunk my first balloon, and things look pretty good. I dunk the next, and again, I am impressed. I sit it in the mug by my stove, and take a moment to admire my work...

POP! One of the balloons explodes, completly covering me and my entire kitchen in splattered dark chocolate... And I mean covered... I have chocolate in my eyelashes. I have chocolate splatters all over my white kitchen blinds. I have super high ceilings in my kitchen that I cant reach unless I stand on my tippy toes on the counter, and yet there is chocolate there too... Really, if you could have seen me, you would have peed your pants...

So, thank goodness I attempted this before the day of the party... I cant imagine having to scrub blinds, ceilings, etc. while Im in the midst of preparing for a dinner party!

Ok, well now that you have laughed at me, does anyone have any chocolate bowl making advice, of the non-exploding variety???
