I was beside my self when Debbie submitted this DIY  Chocolate Easter Bowl tutorial!  I knew right away that my fabulous readers would enjoy this.  Not only does it make for an adorable display, but the fact that it’s also edible makes me giddy!

Make these chocolate bowls to give as favors for the kids or adults at your Easter brunch or as part of your Easter dinner plan. Children would love these in their Easter basket after the Easter egg hunt has ended. 

These could also be made for year round celebrations like Valentine’s day or the Holidays. It’s always a good time for chocolate, right!

PRO TIP: After melting the chocolate, let it cool slightly before dipping the balloon or the hot chocolate can pop the balloon.

How to Make Chocolate Easter Bowl

Yield: varies
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Make these chocolate Easter bowls for the kids or grown ups. The are so cute filled with small candies. Give them as guest favors or put into Easter baskets.


  • mini balloons
  • dipping chocolate
  • shortening
  • wax or parchment paper
  • peeps! chicks or bunnies (I love these)
  • candy eggs, speckled jelly beans, & chocolate filled egg


  1. Melt your chocolate using the microwave, or double boiler, according to package directions.
  2. While your chocolate is melting blow up mini balloons and coat the bottom half of the balloons with shortening. (this will help the chocolate not stick to the balloon). Use a cookie sheet or plate with parchment/wax paper placed on top.
  3. Roll the bottom half of the balloon in the chocolate, while holding on at the top half of the balloon. I wanted the chocolate bowl to have a little rough feel to it, since it is suppose to be a basket. No two will be alike and this makes it easier as it not suppose to be perfect. You might have to apply more than one coat. If a small area is a little transparent or you need to smooth a spot out, take the back of a spoon with a little chocolate on it and swirl in the direction of the chocolate.
  4. With the balloon in your left hand. Place a small circle of chocolate on the plate/cookie sheet with your right hand. Place the balloon on top of the chocolate disk. Place in the freezer to set faster.
  5. When the chocolate is set, pop the balloon with a pin and take out the balloon remains. Fill with jelly beans, chocolate eggs and other candy. Top with a bunny or chick peep. You can package them in boxes, cellophane bags or on top of individual platters at each place setting.

  1. I just had to share this post on my facebook page! I know all my followers will LOVE it!

  2. I have tried to make a chocolate bowl before using a balloon, but everytime I tried (3) the balloon burst and myself and son got covered in hot chocolate.

    What am I doing wrong.

    1. Wendy, do you think maybe the chocolate is too hot when you dip it? I haven’t actually done it my self so I’m not sure.

  3. Just adorable,
    and so cute easter idea, I like!
    Pitsimiini loves chocolate!

  4. BIG TIP: If the chocolate is too warm, it will pop the balloon and you'll decorate the ceiling, walls and well, everything, with chocolate "sprinkles." Be sure to let it cool a little before you dip!!!

    Yes, speaking from experience!

    Happy Easter.

  6. Would never have thought balloons are used as chocolate molds! Great tutorial and adorable finished product!

  7. Thanks for all your sweet comments. What's so great about this chocolate bowl is it doesn't have to be perfect! That's the beauty about it, just like baskets aren't smooth!

  8. Those are just adorable! Perfect amount of treats for the kids. Sometimes baskets can be WAY too much candy!
