April 17: Chocolate bowl fiasco

Tonight Tracy, Krissy, and I attempted to make chocolate bowls for the shower tomorrow. Oh dear! I don't know what we did wrong, but we ended up with chocolate everywhere. The idea is that you blow up balloons and dip them in chocolate and then when the chocolate cools you pop the balloon and have a fun bowl left. That is not how it worked for us. The first balloons we tried popped as soon as we dipped them in the chocolate, sending chocolate EVERYWHERE. It was on was on the walls, on us, on the windows, on the floor. We were laughing so hard we could hardly clean it up. We tried cooling the chocolate a little before dipping it. That stopped the balloons from popping and we were able to dip them all. Unfortunately, we still didn't end up with chocolate bowls. When we popped the balloons the chocolate didn't detach from the balloon and they crumbled in on themselves. Oh well, what can you do? We made a valiant effort, but the pudding ended up in real dishes instead. We are going to have to ask Sister Jensen for a lesson on how to do it correctly. (Maybe we should have done that in the first place!)
